BWT E1 single lever filter receives “Product of the Year 2013” award

5.6.2013 12:00   Mondsee

Protective filter wins the Plus X Award prize for innovation in four categories

The BWT E1 is the first single lever filter in the world – a new type of filter designed to provide unique benefits in terms of hygiene and handling. Innovation, high quality, ease of use and functionality were the outstanding product features that impressed the Plus X Award innovation prize judges. The E1 single level filter from BWT, Europe’s leading water technology company, can now display the “Product of the Year 2013” quality seal.

 

Every year the Plus X Award, the world’s most prestigious innovation award for Technology, Sport and Lifestyle, recognises innovative, quality products that make life easier, are more attractively designed and are environmentally friendly. The unique BWT E1 single level filter safeguards domestic installations, appliances and valves from particles at the point of entry to the domestic drinking water system, and also prolongs their lifespan. Unlike with conventional protective filters, consumers can replace the hygiene safe in the E1 single lever filter in a matter of seconds.

The revolutionary BWT E1 single level filter makes it possible for even non-technical users to have pure, hygienic water in just three quick and easy steps. It takes less than 30 seconds to replace the hygiene safe, the centrepiece of the E1 single lever filter:

 

1.   Release the locking device, which shuts the water supply off in both directions
2. Raise the lever to automatically eject the hygiene safe including the filtration element
3. Insert the new hygiene safe/filtration element, close the lever and lock. Job done!

“The development of the E1 single lever filter represents a milestone in filtration technology, substantially reducing the amount of maintenance required by consumers and setting new standards of hygiene in the filter replacement process. The E1 is safer, more hygienic and easier to use than any other available filter. We are delighted that our product has now won over the judges of the Plus X Awards, and are proud to have received the ‘Product of the Year 2013’ accolade”, said Lutz Hübner, CEO of BWT Wassertechnik GmbH and BWT Austria GmbH.

BWT reminder service and 10-year guarantee
Innovation comes not only with the product but also with the service that customers can rely on when they buy the E1 filter. If they register their purchase on www.bwt-E1.com, owners of the new single lever filter will automatically receive a 10-year manufacturer’s product warranty. Customers can also request an email reminder service for regular replacement of the filtration element (hygiene safe) at six-monthly intervals. This will guarantee consumers the best possible level of hygiene while at the same time providing healthy repeat business for BWT’s trade partners.

The single lever filter – easy to install
The installation length (100mm) and relevant adapters enable customers to replace existing filters and pressure regulators with the E1 single lever filter at no additional cost. The single lever filter is also available as a domestic water supply station and pressure regulator (see model E1 HWS).
