Global Shower Leader Provides a Simplified Pressure Balance Platform to Streamline Specifying and Installation While Providing Premium Showering Features and Aesthetics

PISCATAWAY, N.J., March 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GROHE, a global leader in bathroom solutions and kitchen fittings, today announced the GrohSafe 3.0 Pressure Balance Valve (PBV) with Integrated Diverter and matching 2-Handle Trims. The latest pressure balance valve system enables builders, designers and plumbers to more easily specify and install high-quality GROHE showering solutions with superior versatility and dependability for the discerning consumer.

New to the GROHE portfolio, the GrohSafe 3.0 PBV with Integrated Diverter is uniquely designed to make installation easier than ever by eliminating the need to install and align a separate diverter and separate trims, thereby reducing labor costs and saving time during the build-and-install process. The valves feature convertible functionality and utilize the same body for both 2-way and 3-way water applications. This enables effortless control of body sprays, hand showers, and showerheads from a single two-handle trim to deliver the ultimate luxury showering experience.

"Our customers look to GROHE for the most innovative, advanced shower solutions, and since the GrohSafe 3.0 PBV has a built-in diverter, this reduces complexity during a big pain point for our PROs – the shower installation process," said Libby Gerberi, senior brand specialist at GROHE. "The improved valve makes it easier to design, build and install multi-function showering systems that deliver authentic spa-like experiences. Additionally, the coordinating GrohSafe 3.0 PBV 2-Handle Trims control up to three water functions in a single trim, enabling a sleek, minimalist shower design to make your GROHE dream shower a reality."

The compact size and flat back design of the GrohSafe 3.0 Pressure Balance Valve offers extreme versatility and ensures an easy fit in tight spaces and thin walls. It also enables effortless back-to-back installations for multi-family residences or apartments. Featuring GROHE's proprietary double ceramic technology, the one-piece pressure balance cartridge and mixing discs flawlessly deliver an ideal blend of hot and cold water while the pressure balancing spool reacts quickly to changes in water pressure to prevent scalding. This impressive duo, made of high-grade ceramic, resists mineral build-up and harsh water conditions, ensuring safe, leak-free performance and years of consistently smooth operation.

The GrohSafe 3.0 Pressure Balance Valve with Integrated Diverter pairs perfectly with GROHE's extensive array of premium all-metal two- and three-way trims. These include, but are not limited to, options from the popular Eurocube, Cosmopolitan, Lineare, and Timeless collections. GROHE trims feature snap-fit mounting to ensure a secure, flush installation and are ADA-compliant. Concealed mounting creates a clean, sophisticated look with no visible screws to obstruct the trim's polished appearance. The metal wall plate and handle ensure long lasting durability.

Experience the ease and versatility of the GrohSafe 3.0 Pressure Balance Valve with Integrated Diverter, which is now available at authorized GROHE distributors and plumbing supply houses nationwide. For more information on GROHE's advanced bathroom and kitchen solutions, visit grohe.us.
