BLANCO, German manufacturer of finely-crafted sinks and faucets, introduces the new water-saving HYDRA which conserves 30% more water than conventional faucets. HYDRA offers an optimal mix of high performance and water-savings, delivering a constant flow rate at 1.5 GPM. Elegant, yet inviting, this exclusive European design features a high-arc spout, decorative loop handle and flexible pull-out spray. HYDRA is also AB1953 Lead Free.
BLANCO's efforts for the protection of the environment go > MORE far beyond developing innovative products like our new HYDRA faucet," says Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. "We believe that our overall focus must be sustainable and intensive beyond any legally required standard. To achieve this goal, we use the latest energy-saving exhaust air technology, returning heat energy back to the production process. Water consumption in our overall process was reduced 50% by installing water-cooling technology, and we continue to reduce production scrap by using the highest quality raw materials, computer-controlled mixing machines, optimized processes and production facilities. We also do not use CFC- and CHC-chasteners. In addition, we proudly achieved a permanent and significant reduction of oil consumption and CO2 emission in our facilities and we purposefully purchase from ecological evaluated suppliers."
BLANCO's HYDRA faucet is made from the most durable materials available. Solid brass body construction anchors the finely-tuned inner workings, from the long-lasting ceramic disc cartridge to the flexible and convenient pull-out spray hose. Matching soap/lotion dispensers are offered.
