Low Flow Bathroom Faucets

According to the EPA, bathrooms are by far the largest water users in the home, accounting for more than half of all the water that families use indoors. Advances in plumbing technology and design mean that faucets, showers, and toilets can use significantly less water than standard models while still delivering the rinse, spray, and flush yhat you expect. To select the right products, one simply has to look for the WaterSense label.

The agency also predicts that changes we make at home will add up quickly in neighborhoods across the country, and that if one in every 10 American homes upgrades a full bathroom with WaterSense labeled fixtures, we could save about 74 billion gallons of water and about $1.6 billion on our utility bills nationwide per year.

Faucets account for more than 15 percent of indoor household water use—more than 1 trillion gallons of water across the United States each year. By installing WaterSense labeled bathroom sink faucets or faucet accessories, an average household can save more than 500 gallons each year. Also, since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, households will also save energy.
