Sustainable shower toilets

by | 18 Jun 2020 | Suppliers

Thanks to cutting-edge developments and exceptional quality standards, all of our shower toilets put in an excellent performance in life cycle assessments. Our AquaClean Sela model demonstrates that functions such as WhirlSpray shower technology, TurboFlush flush technology and heating-on-demand make it possible to conserve energy and resources.

Shower toilets create that extra feeling of freshness after a visit to the bathroom. Triggering the shower function requires a pulse of current and some additional water – but don’t let that fool you into thinking that shower toilets are less ecologically friendly than their conventional counterparts. In fact, shower toilet complete solutions in the Geberit AquaClean range perform well in life cycle assessments and their consumption of toilet paper is no different to conventional toilets.

Sustainability as demonstrated by the AquaClean Sela

The Geberit AquaClean solution, to take one example, consumes no more than 1 litre of water in each shower procedure – and despite this small quantity, the patented WhirlSpray shower technology (which combines air with the jet of water) helps to achieve the very best in cleaning performance.

The anal shower feature means that there is no need to use a large amount of toilet paper, relieving the burden on the sewage system and cutting down on sludge. Once you’re clean, all you then need is a small terry towel to dry yourself off: the Geberit AquaClean Sela model does not feature a warm air dryer, making it even more environmentally friendly.

Another function that the Sela model does have is heating-on-demand technology, which uses a continuous flow heater to heat the shower water to the desired temperature when the shower mechanism is triggered. This replaces the boilers that were previously a feature of shower toilets: these kept the water warm at all times, but resulted in escalating electricity bills.

Today’s shower toilets, on the other hand, mitigate the impact on electricity costs by using less than 0.5 watts in economy mode – meeting the requirements of the European energy-related products (ErP) directive for household, office and television appliances. A WLAN router consumes 10 times more energy by comparison. Yet another way in which the Geberit AquaClean Sela model performs well in life cycle assessments is through its combination of a rimless ceramic pan and TurboFlush flush technology, which achieves the very best in flushing-out performance with a low flush volume of 4.5 litres. There’s no need to flush a second time in most cases – and rarely a need to use the toilet brush either.
