According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (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.
Installing more efficient bathroom faucets, shower heads and toilets can help those planning to remodel their bathrooms and those who want to save money and resources by conserving water. WaterSense labeled fixtures use significantly less water without sacrificing performance.
The EPA has named Delta faucets one of its WaterSense partners for 2011. More than two-thirds of the company's products are WaterSense labeled, making it easy for consumers to save water without sacrificing style or functionality.
Kohler has also earned praise from the government agency for its efforts in helping consumers conserve water. The company has received an Excellence Award for strategic collaboration in water-saving efforts.
"Kohler has a large stake in the availability of clean, safe water," said Rob Zimmerman, water conservation and sustainability manager for Kohler. "Our company understands the ongoing importance of educating homeowners about reducing water usage."
Specifically, the company received the award for its efforts in promoting and publicizing its WaterSense-labeled plumbing products with displays at nearly 900 wholesale showrooms and 500 other retail locations.
According to the EPA, since the launch of the program, WaterSense labeled products have helped consumers save a total of 125 billion gallons of water and $2 billion in water and energy bills.
