EcoRight is trendsetting
Climate protection starts with showering, ecological action with hand washing. As an advocate of the value of water, Hansgrohe assumes a pioneering role in dealing with this precious resource. Hansgrohe faucets and showers fitted with EcoRight technology require up to 60% less water than conventional products – and without any loss of comfort. Lower hot water consumption means lower energy requirements. And that means: fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs.
Thanks to the enrichment of water with air, EcoRight means: showering pleasure with a soft, plump water jet. You will feel the difference on your skin. Eco? Logical.
Your daily shower water demand is reduced by up to 60%: thanks to a sophisticated flow limiter, special jets and the admixture of air. As a result, the Raindance EcoRight overhead and handshowers from Hansgrohe dispense only 2.5 gallons of water per minute, while the Crometta 85 Green overhead and handshowers dispense only 1.5 gallons of water per minute. It does not matter how high your water pressure is – a “precision O-ring” reacts flexibly to the water pressure and adjusts the water quantity. If the pressure is high, the ring makes the opening smaller. If it is low, it expands the opening.
3.5 gallons of water per minute run through a conventional lavatory mixer. In all Hansgrohe faucets, EcoRight lowers water consumption by up to 60%*, to around 1.5 gallons per minute. How does that work? By adding air and by means of a special flow limitation system. The EcoRight aerator is integrated into the spout of the faucet and enriches the water with air, available in unlimited supply. The result is a full, bubbling jet of water. A “precision elastomer” responds automatically to different water pressure and alters its shape. It limits the flow, thus constantly saving drinking water.

Other water-saving technologies that quickly pay off
Anyone looking for a real water-saving miracle should utilize hands-free faucets with infrared sensor electronics. These faucets ensure that water only flows when you really need it. Consumption is controlled by smart sensor technology, with an extremely short run-on time, and limits the water flow to approximately 5 liters per minute.
