neoperl - flow, stop and go

Washstand faucet in the bathroom*

NEOPERL® PCA aerators with an integrated flow regulator are a great solution when it comes to reducing water use. They create a beautiful, comfortable water stream at a virtually constant flow rate. "PCA" means Pressure Compensating Aerator.

For the bathroom sink, Neoperl recommends using PCA aerators with a flow rate between 5.0 - 7.0 l/min. Note that local regulations may stipulate a different flow rate. Seek advice from a plumbing professional or from us if you are unsure.

Please note: PCA aerators cannot be used with a pressureless water heater/boiler.

Public washbasin*

Public buildings often feature rows of washbasins with a single water inlet for all taps. Using aerators with an integrated flow regulator helps save water: only as much water as is necessary will flow. At the same time, the flow regulator ensures that the water from the single inlet is distributed equally when several taps are open at the same time. Thus the comfort for users is maintained at all times.

For washbasins in public buildings we recommend aerators with spray stream, for example the PCA Spray SLC. Most popular are flow rates from 0.5 to 1.0 gpm (approx. 1.9 to 3.8 l/min).

Kitchen faucet

In the kitchen, where you may need to quickly fill a pot with water, using a water-saving aerator arguably isn't the best choice.

This is why Neoperl offers you a clever alternative: with the Ecobooster aerator, you get a water-saving flow rate (approx. 7.0 l/min at 3 bar) as default, and by pushing a button you can increase (boost) the rate to approx. 17.0 l/min. Once you've closed the tap, the Ecobooster aerator automatically reverts to the water-saving setting.

Our OEM customers can develop their own water-saving solution for kitchen faucets by using the Ecobooster engine.
