What Exactly is DVGW?

Established in 1859 in Frankfurt/Main, DVGW is a non-profit organization that operates independently and impartially.


DVGW is short for "Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches e.V. - Technisch-wissenschaftlicher Verein" = "DVGW German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water".

The DVGW is indispensable for the industry self-regulation in the gas and water supply industry. Its technical rules set the standard in both Germany and within Europe the utmost safety combined with the best possible efficiency.


What Exactly do they test for?

The value of a certificate highy depends on the testing process.

In the case of water supply installations, the following criteria in particular are investigated:

1

Resistance to pressure

i.e. Hydraulic effect on pipeline systems or domestic installations due to pressure loss or waterhammer effects

2

Hygienic Effect

i.e. preventing backflow or testing non-metallic materials which come into contact with drinking water with respect to their hygienic suitability

4

Functionality 

5

Long-term Reliability


The faucet has to go through a 21-day test, during which it has to process hot water for 16 hours a day.

After the test, the examiner use acid fluid to dissolve the scale inside the water tank. The faucet does not pass the test if its "scale removal rate" is lower than 20%.

Test Results show that Bravt faucets have good  scale-removal ability. What's more, since Bravat faucets are equipped with Neoperl aerator, they are much easier to attend to on the daily basis:
