If you’re in the market for plumbing fixtures of any kind, it pays to look for the WaterSense label when deciding on your purchase. Not only will you be saving natural resources by reducing water consumption, but you’ll also save money.
Products that have the WaterSense label have been certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program and meet the following requirements:
- They’re at least 20 percent more efficient than equivalent products and perform as well or better.
- WaterSense-approved plumbing fixtures provide measurable water savings on a national level.
- They achieve water savings with the latest technology options.
- An independent third party handles the certification process.
All companies that bear this label have also signed a partnership agreement that defines not only the responsibility of the EPA in certifications, but also how each partner company is permitted to use the label in their product promotions and communications to their consumers.
The WaterSense label currently covers a wide range of plumbing fixtures, including bathroom sink faucets, toilets, flushing urinals, showerheads and irrigation controllers. If you’re preparing for a bathroom remodel or know that your faucet needs replacing, WaterSense is the way to go.
