Save water and energy with GROHE’s sustainable showers and taps

GROHE prides itself on its sustainable thinking, creating kitchen and bathroom products that save our planet’s valuable resources of water and energy. Using groundbreaking technologies, GROHE not only designs brassware and fittings that benefit our environment but they can also make life simpler at home, too. We’re all mindful of not letting the tap run needlessly, whether brushing our teeth or grabbing a glass of water, and many of us take a quick shower now rather than relaxing in the tub. GROHE has plenty of products to help us conserve even more water and its GROHE WaterCare® ethos is a promise to help secure the future of this precious natural resource.
 
One such innovation is the GROHE Red® kitchen tap, which keeps three litres of filtered kettle-hot water ready for use at all times, so no more standing around waiting for the kettle to boil, wasting valuable energy and time. As well as conserving electricity, it also saves water and cuts down on the utility bills while its Mono design makes it perfect for smaller spaces. The tap is WRAS approved for all installations and comes with clever safety functions including CoolTouch and ChildLock. Later this year, GROHE will also be launching the new GROHE Red, which will feature new sleek controls, a smart child lock device and an energy-saving holiday mode.

Another eco-friendly solution is the award-winning GROHE Blue Home, a kit that includes a special mixer and cooler with integrated filter and carbonator. No more buying wasteful bottled water at the supermarket – now when family and friends call round, you can offer them chilled, filtered fizzy water literally on tap. This compact system only needs a 30cm wide cabinet for installation while the tap itself features an intuitive colour-lit touch activator and is available in chrome or SuperSteel as well as three different spout styles to suit all kitchen schemes.

Alongside innovative and intuitive technology, GROHE’s sustainable solutions also include the Rainshower® SmartControl system with its eco-friendly XXL head shower. The lozenge-shaped head, with a width of 36cm, is designed to mirror the shape of an individual, shoulder to shoulder, to provide optimum coverage while ensuring only the water needed is used. The water-saving Rain O2 Spray also helps to reduce water consumption by up to 50%.

GROHE EcoJoy™ technology helps the brand keep its promise. It’s already built in to many of its fittings and showers as standard, helping to minimise consumption while maximising convenience and comfort. Check out the water and energy calculator at Grohe to see how much you can save with a GROHE EcoJoy™ or SilkMove® ES single lever mixer; a great tool for working out the annual cost and energy savings.
