Toilets must meet criteria in the following areas to be considered water efficient: 1) effective flush volume shall not exceed 1.28 gallons 2) solid waste removal must be 350 grams or greater 3) the toilet must conform to the adjustability and other supplementary requirements. The WaterSense program was designed by the US Environmental Protection Agency to encourage water efficiency in the US through the use of a special label (which is featured above on the page) on consumer products. WaterSense-rated faucets and faucet accessories are high performing water efficient fixtures.
Eco-friendly faucets conserve water - a fast-depleting natural resource - and helps to reduce your water bills. Kitchen and lavatory faucets account for more than 15% of all indoor household water use. This is more than 1 trillion gallons of water across the United States each year. WaterSense-labeled faucets and accessories can reduce water flow by 30% or more without sacrificing performance. We could save billions of gallons each year by retrofitting the country's 222 million bathroom sink faucets with models that have earned the WaterSense certification.
Food waste garbage disposals are both a practical and environmentally responsible way to help manage the more than 31 million tons of solid waste represented by food scraps generated in the US each year. Home composting makes sense, but it’s not practical for those in crowded urban settings, high-rise buildings, and frigid weather climates. Using disposals complement composting of waste. The biosolids that result from treatment can be processed and sold as fertilizer and soil conditioner. This, in turn, reduces the need for energy-intensive fertilizers.
