For most families, more than half the water used indoors is used in the bathroom, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. That’s why it’s smart, when remodeling or installing a new bathroom, to choose high-efficiency fixtures. The financial savings add up quickly, as do the benefits to the environment.
New technology allows showerheads, for example, to work just as well as they used to — or better — while using much less water than standard models.
The WaterSense label, which is available on various brands of plumbing fixtures, is the seal of approval for a plumbing fixture that saves 20 percent more water when compared with the average fixtures in its category. WaterSense is a partnership program with the EPA. Its approved fixtures are certified by an independent third party; the label is not affiliated with any brand.
When your contractor installs any piece of plumbing labeled with WaterSense certification, you can rest assured that you’re getting a high-performing product than consumes less.
