Think you know taps? Think again. Because with the Active Twist, we’ve created a tap that works differently; with the ability to not only fill the sink, but empty it too. Alongside its stylish, minimalist looks, we’ve incorporated an innovative special feature that links tap and sink – a dial that when turned, operates the sink’s waste outlet, so the water drains away, easily, safely and hygienically.
As well as meaning you no longer have to put your hands into hot or dirty water to empty the sink, the Active Twist can also help to create a cleaner look on the work surface, as there’s no need to add a separate waste control. Instead, it’s an integral part of the tap.
The benefits don’t stop there. Being part of our Active Taps Range, the Active Twist is designed to save both water and energy, so it’s not just a beautiful and practical choice, but a sustainable one too.
Like all taps in the Active Taps Range, the Active Twist features the ECO cartridge, which can limit both the flow and temperature of the water. The tap’s lever is stepped, so with an initial movement it opens 50% of the way, delivering sufficient water with enough pressure and to suit most tasks, whether you’re filling the kettle or washing the dishes. This can help you use up to 50% less water - reducing costs and lessening your impact on the environment. However, should further water and pressure be needed, a second pull of the lever will open it fully up to 100%.
But that’s not all, thanks to the temperature limiter within the ECO Cartridge, you can reduce the amount of hot water you use. By simply turning the ring nut inside the handle, it’s possible to adjust the water’s temperature saving you both energy and money.
For improved cleaning, the Active Twist’s spray jet function delivers a more powerful jet of water, thanks to the needle spray used. This makes it easier to rinse fruit and vegetables and tackle stubborn marks on pans and dishes. And because the stream is able to reach every part of the bowl, cleaning the sink is so much easier.
The laminar aerator fitted in the spout, ensures the Active Twist delivers a crystal clear, non-splashing water stream, with very little noise. This ensures improved performance and helps to keep both the tap and sink area clean and looking their best.
