By reducing the amount of water held in the Connect Blue fitting by 80 %, there is less water to flush through and reheat. That also means there is 80 % less water in the tap to stagnate and allow bacterial growth.
IdealBlue technology is a unique nickel and lead free technology, designed specifically for basin mixers. Water passing through the IdealBlue technology never touches chrome or nickel; the copper pipes are not plated on the inside, while all water-bearing surfaces are made of plastic. IdealBlue technology anticipates and exceeds new European Drinking Water Directives.
