The plumbing industry constantly researches ways to conserve water in every room of your home and they’ve done an amazing job. Now it’s easier than ever to identify these key products that save you water and money. Look for the WaterSense label. Like your EnergyStar appliances, WaterSense (WELL for European fixtures) identifies those items containing low-flo aerators and 1.28gpf toilets. Many of our vendors, concerned with saving water, money and the environment, have developed technolologies that still provide the strength of the spray and the power of the flush.
