Did you know that a family of four uses an average of 400 gallons of water a day? That’s like taking 10 baths a day! So how do you know if the products we use are water-efficient? Well, the EPA has developed WaterSense Labeling, making it easy to find products that will save water.
The WaterSense Label helps you quickly identify water-efficient products and programs that meet water conservation standards,while helping you save money, and encouraging more innovation.
Products bearing the WaterSense label include bathroom sink faucets, landscape irrigation services, showerheads, toilets and weather-or-sensor-based irrigation control technologies.
Installing WaterSense labeled toilets and faucets can save more than 11,000 gallons every year. With reduced water bills, the upgrade could pay for itself in a few short years.
If all inefficient toilets in U.S. homes were converted to WaterSense labeled toilets, we would save enough water to equal 15 days of flow over Niagara Falls. So look for the WaterSense Label and remember: Every drop counts!
