  • American Standard Flash Pressure Balance Shower Valve Delivers Installation Flexibility and Reduces Installation Times

    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 29, 2019) – For every five plumbers who retire, only one enters the profession. This driving force behind the shortage of skilled labor has one implication for plumbers: being over capacity.

    American Standard, part of LIXIL Americas, is now giving these plumbers time back on every job. The new Flash pressure balance valve delivers features that increase the flexibility and speed of installation.

    Flash provides a variety of pipe connection options with a compact size and design that make installation quicker and easier in different construction situations. An exclusive stub-out connection is the first to work with press-connect fittings without additional solder or piping. The American Standard Flash development team collaborated with ViegaTM to design and test the connections. Viega has endorsed the valve to work with the Viega ProPress® System.

    Another Flash time-saving exclusive is the PEX elbow connection. The valve body rotates 180 degrees, enabling PEX connections from either floor or ceiling supply lines, with no need for additional elbows. 

    The Flash valve also advances the heritage of the American Standard brand pioneering ceramic disc valve technology with a patented ceramic spool that allows for faster reaction time from pressure changes with lower, water-saving flow rates. The ceramic discs provide an exceptional user experience from the precise mixing of hot and cold water that enables a wider range of showering temperatures. This, combined with a longer drip-free life and smooth handle operation, means that any callbacks from jobs using the Flash pressure balance valve are not likely to be problems, but referrals from happy customers.

  • Protect Homes from Water Damage with the GROHE Sense & GROHE Sense Guard Water Management System

    Innovative Home Solution Detects Leaks, Automatically Shuts Off Water Supply and Alerts Homeowner via Smartphone App

    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 29, 2019) – Whether by slow drips or sudden pipe bursts, water leaks can lead to substantial home repair costs – which average nearly $7,000 per insurance claim[i] in the U.S. With a comprehensive water management system from GROHE, part of LIXIL, homeowners can protect their property and avoid or mitigate the effects of water damage.

    The GROHE Sense & GROHE Sense Guard water management system offers reliable protection against costly water damage by notifying homeowners about excess moisture or leaks using a convenient smartphone app. Available together or separately, key components of the system are as follows:

    • GROHE Sense is a smart water sensor that is placed in your home wherever you see a risk, such as the basement, laundry room, bathroom or kitchen. It detects leaking water “‘around-the-clock” and immediately alerts homeowners.

    • GROHE Sense Guard goes one step further. It uses multiple sensors to track water pressure and flow and measure general water consumption. It automatically turns off the water supply when it exceeds a specific maximum set by the user.

    With approximately 14,000 people in the U.S. experiencing costly water damage at home or work every day, solutions like the GROHE Sense & GROHE Sense Guard water management system deliver tremendous peace of mind by avoiding the damages, losses and substantial remediation costs often associated with water damage,” said Katty Pien, chief marketing officer, LIXIL Americas.

    In addition to its water leak detection capabilities, GROHE Sense protects against frost and mold risks by measuring the room temperature and humidity. If either is above or below the standard threshold, or a leak is detected, the smart water sensor will send homeowners an automatic alert via the GROHE ONDUS smartphone app.

    Installed by a professional directly to the main water pipe of a home, the smart water controller, GROHE Sense Guard, measures the system temperature to indicate the risk of frost, detects leaks and shuts off the water supply automatically when a pipe bursts and water consumption passes a certain threshold. It also conducts periodic micro leakage tests by measuring and tracking pressure drops in the water line so that the homeowner can detect leaks immediately before major damage can occur, alerting the homeowner via the GROHE ONDUS smartphone app.

    GROHE Sense Guard can also be integrated with Nest to enable an even higher level of water security by shutting the water off every time the home is vacant. Upon the homeowner’s return, the water is automatically turned back on.

    Full Control with Just One App

    The GROHE ONDUS app is the heart of the GROHE Sense & GROHE Sense Guard water management system. It provides the highest level of water security and allows continuous monitoring of GROHE Sense & GROHE Sense Guard – anytime, anywhere. With the smartphone alert feature, the app can also shut off the water supply manually to prevent major damage. In addition, all measured data can be observed via the app. It supports Apple mobile devices with the iOS version of 9.0 or higher and Android mobile devices with Android 4.3 or higher.
