GROHE minta tOucH SIMPLE – SENSUAL – MOvINg The Minta Touch from GROHE is everything but unemotional. Thanks to its innovative EasyTouch Technology it impulsively reacts to the slightest touch. Also it is really something to show off. As a bestseller it shows best side, aesthetically in shining chrome, thanks to the GROHE StarLight® technology. Touch the Minta Touch quite simply with the back of your hand, wrist or forearm and it will run, as you desire, thus keeping the faucet clean and hygienic at all times.

Just touch the faucet at any point with your wrist/elbow or with just one fingertip to turn the faucet ON and OFF.

Upholding our basic idea – dirty hands but clean fittings. Clean hands? Then simply take hold of it. The lever intensity and temperature of the waterflow, can be adjusted. GROHE Minta Touch is therefore a hybrid faucet which intelligently unites two operating functions. Is it not simply sensual, moving?

Radiant long-life shine resistant to soil and tarnishing.

Pull-out spray increases operating range of faucet and offers different sprays.

Height of the spout allows easy filling of large pots.

Activate the faucet via the mechanical lever.

Simple activation / deactivation of the waterflow by touch. Smooth turn of spout makes it easy to use/manage.

is the Minta touch technology battery or powerpack operated?

The Minta Touch is battery operated.

how often must the battery be changed?

This depends on how often you use the Minta Touch. The life-span of the battery is very durable, hence, must only be changed every 2-4 years.

how can i tell, when the life-span of the battery is coming to an end?

Approx. 6 weeks before, the water-flow will pulsate three times. When the battery is completely empty or depleted the EasyTouch function will no longer work, nevertheless, the fitting is still functional using the manual lever.

Can I still use the fitting if the battery is completely empty?

Of course! By using the mechanical lever function.

how can i regulate the temperature and the waterflow?

This can also be done using the mechanical lever function.

how is the temperature and the waterflow intensity when I use the Easytouch function?

With the EasyTouch function merely cold water can be activated. The intensity is depending on the pre-setting of the mechanical operating lever.

can i also activate the Easytouch function with clothing for example?

No! Minta Touch reacts only to skin contact. However, also moist dishcloths which are held near the base or spout, can activate the EasyTouch function.

How do I clean the fitting?

Quite simply - with a dry cloth! Rubbergloves won´t activate the EasyTouch function. You can also clean it with a wet cloth? Just switch on the cleaning mode in the control unit. The control should be placed accessible somewhere within easy access in the kitchen cupboard or under the sink.

Does the fitting also work under extreme climatic conditions?

Certainly. Even at temperatures up to 40 degrees centigrade with concurrent air humidity of up to 80% the MintaTouch remains perfectly and technically functional.
