Product Technologies / Benefits:

  • Starlight Finish: Continuously improving over the last 70 years Grohe’s unique plating process has been refined to produce and immaculate shiny surface that is recognized as one of the best surface finishes the world over. Grohe plates sub layers of copper and/or nickel to ensure that a completely non-porous, immaculate surface awaits the chrome layer. This deep, even layered chrome surface creates a luminous and mirror like sheen.
  • SilkMove Cartridge: The rich and smooth handling of our single lever faucets conveys pure quality. As you change the temperature from hot to cold, one ceramic disc glides effortlessly across the other with absolute precision. These cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The SilkMove cartridge is yet another example of design and technology fusing to bring you an enhanced water experience.
  • Grohe WaterCare: With the constant challenge of providing faucets that perform to the highest standards while leaving the smallest environmental foot-print possible, Grohe has created a series of “WaterCare” faucets. These faucets use up to 30% less water than the industry standard 2.2 GPM models while surpassing strict guidelines when it comes to performance. You can help reduce your water bill and feel good about your roll in conservation with these environmentally responsible faucets from Grohe.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product We are delighted with this product and pleased with the service from FaucetDirect. The reviews, and particularly the questions and answers, helped us make the right choice. There are subtle differences between similar Grohe faucets, and this enabled us to pick the right one more easily than we could in a retail location. The faucet stands high, as we anticipated, so it would not be right for every bathroom. The reach is perfect for the rectangular sink we chose and it looks perfect with our new Caesarstone Blizzard countertops. We ordered three of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product Clean lines, works smoothly. We put two in the kids' rooms last year , and will put two more in the master bath this year. Be sure to allow enough room to accommodate the small lever in back of the faucet. And the faucet sits tall, so measure carefully on backsplash and mirror.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very large faucet I had to return this faucet. It is very large, and looked awkward on my small bathroom sink. Otherwise, it appeared to be very well made. Can't comment of the functioning, since I returned it without installing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grohe 32 216 The Grohe is larger than it looks on the website. It is elegant and has great lines. Check to be sure that your sink can handle that large of a faucet -- it is tall. It is very showy, and modern while remaining understated.
