While many people choose Danze bathroom faucets for their beauty, they are often doing something good for the environment by installing these fixtures as well. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), many Danze faucets are WaterSense labeled, which means that they use about 20 percent less water than other models, without sacrificing flow or performance.
Experts say that installing a new bathroom faucet is among the easiest ways to improve the look and efficiency of the room. According to the EPA, retrofitting a bathroom with WaterSense labeled faucets can help an average household save more than 500 gallons of water each year. Also, since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, households will save energy.
Although it seems like a simple solution, many people are hesitant to install more efficient faucets.
To make water conservation easy to achieve, manufacturer PF WaterWorks is unveiling a "Home Water Conservation Kit for Dummies" at the 2011 Greenbuild Expo in Toronto, Canada. The kit includes a WaterSense labeled easy-to-install showerhead and WaterSense labeled bathroom sink faucet aerator. These plumbing fixtures will provide immediate savings with payback in just a few months, according to the company.
