A unique feature of the Geberit touchless sensor taps is that the flowing water of the tap actually generates power to recharge the fixture. This power generational means no main supply is required, eliminating casual standby power consumption. The touchless tap is the perfect solution for everyone who sets a high value on sustainability, ecology, and aesthetics.

Geberit’s mini power station

The small generator that makes the touchless taps independent from the mains power supply or battery power is a true engineering feat. Whenever the tap is in use, the flowing water charges the accumulator via a hydroelectric turbine that produces electricity. The electricity is then loaded an accumulator that makes sure that the tap is operational at any time.
