Faucet manufacturer Grohe has introduced the RainShower SmartControl unit with a double-button design that allows users to control all desired shower settings.
“The shower has evolved into one of the most indulgent moments of the day, and SmartControl elevates the everyday shower into a luxe experience that can be personalized for any user,” says Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer for LIXIL Water Technology Americas, parent company of Grohe. “The system is in keeping with Grohe’s approach to leveraging innovation to dial up the design and functionality of today’s home environment.”
The unit uses a combined push-and-turn button to start the flow of water and control water volume, and a SafeStop button prevents users from inadvertently raising the water temperature to more than 100 degrees. A metal thermostat handle delivers preferred water temperature to the user within fractions of a second and keeps the temperature consistent for the duration of the shower, the company says.
For added convenience, the top of the control unit serves as a shelf for shampoo, shower gel, and other products. Made of safety glass, the tray can be detached for easy cleaning.
