Innovative Technology

Use up to 60% less water with EcoSmart showers and mixer taps

Water and energy saving technology is available on a wide selection of hansgrohe shower heads and basin mixers and uses up to 60% less water than conventional products.

This significant water saving is made possible without lessening the user experience as German manufactured EcoSmart technology mixes air into the water to produce a powerful flow and pressure; that means you can have a great shower without using unnecessary water.

Using less water also means using less energy to heat the water, so EcoSmart also delivers valuable energy savings.

Conventional showers can often run at 15-20 litres per minute, sometimes even more, whereas hansgrohe EcoSmart shower heads use only 6 or 9 litres per minute reducing water consumption by up to 60%. EcoSmart showers adapts to different water pressure; if the pressure is high the water opening will become smaller and expand in lower pressure.

A full range of shower head designs is available to suit any style of bathroom including handheld, fixed and rain head options.

Whereas the central position on standard mixers immediately activates mixed water (both hot and cold), hansgrohe’s CoolStart technology means that only cold water will flow out when set to the middle position. It is a simple innovation but one missed by manufacturers of standard taps.

In CoolStart mixers the piping system does not fill up unnecessarily with hot water and it is only when you move the lever to the left that hot water is added.

You decide how high the temperature needs to be, hot water will flow only when you need it.

CoolStart reduces energy consumption and hence CO2 emissions as well, meaning that hansgrohe’s latest technology automatically reduces the burden on both the environment and your wallet.

Safety is a key priority for hansgrohe when designing and manufacturing their products. CoolContact technology is a great example of where hansgrohe have taken extra steps to further protect their customers.

CoolContact protects occupants in a shower by having the cold water flow through the thermostatic mixer directly to the surface, meaning that the housing is always cool to touch. By keeping the hot water away from the surface, this makes the shower safe to touch at all times, especially for children.

AirPower technology increases showering pleasure and reduces the requirement for water. hansgrohe innovators have invented ground-breaking technology that means taps and showers will use less water without compromising on performance.

The principle is simple: an ample supply of air is sucked in via the spray disc of an AirPower shower. This infiltrates the incoming water. Enriched with air to the extent that the droplets become plumper, lighter and softer. You will be using valuable water efficiently. Because every drop counts.

AirPower shower rain envelopes the whole body, creating a wonderful sense of well-being. You can also indulge in a massage with the multi-jet models: the powerful stream has a noticeably relaxing effect. And as well as more shower fun, there will be less requirement for water.

The problem of blocked and poorly functioning shower heads is a thing of the past with QuickClean. Mixers and showers are worked hard in most settings and have to cope with a range of challenges from hard water and dirt to many types of cleaning agents – all of which can affect performance.

The experienced technologists at hansgrohe have developed a fast anti-limescale function and with QuickClean a simple quick and gentle wipe with thumb, finger or cloth will rub off deposits in an instant. Trouble-free and optimum water flow is maintained.

That’s because hansgrohe has fitted its mixer aerators and shower jets with flexible silicon naps. So dirt and limescale can be rubbed off easily with no need for prolonged or vigorous rubbing. And that means products stay limescale-free, look good and well maintained as well as working better for longer.
