   Most of us know we can save water if we turn off the tap while brushing our
   teeth (as much  as 3,000 gallons per year!), but did you know that there are
   products that will help save water when you turn on the tap too? WaterSense
   labeled faucets and faucet accessories (e.g., aerators) are high-performing,
   water-efficient  fixtures that will help you  reduce water use in your home and
   save money on water bills.
   WaterSense labeled bathroom sink faucets and
   accessories that use a maximum of 1.5 gallons per
   minute can reduce a sink's water flow by 30 percent or
   more from the standard flow of 2.2 gallons per minute
   without sacrificing performance. We could save billions
   of gallons nationwide each year by retrofitting bathroom
   sink faucets with WaterSense labeled models.
   All products bearing the WaterSense label complete a
   third-party certification process to ensure they meet
   U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) criteria.
   Faucets and faucet accessories—products that can be
   attached easily to existing faucets to save water—that
   obtain the WaterSense label have demonstrated both
   water efficiency and the ability to provide ample flow.

   Replacing old, inefficient faucets and aerators with
   WaterSense labeled models can save the average
   family 700 gallons of water per year, equal to the
   amount of water needed to take 40 showers. Since
   these water savings reduce demands on water heaters,
   households will also save enough energy to run a
   hairdryer 10 minutes a day for a year. Achieving these
   savings can be as easy as twisting on a WaterSense
   labeled aerator, which can cost as little as a few
   dollars. If every home in the United States replaced
   existing faucets and aerators with WaterSense labeled
   models, we could save nearly $1.2 billion in water and

energy costs and 64 billion gallons of water across the
country annually—equivalent to the annual household
water needs of more than 680,000 American homes.

Whether replacing an older,
inefficient faucet, or looking to
reduce water in your bathroom,
choose a WaterSense labeled
sink faucet or faucet accessory.
WaterSense labeled models are
available at a wide variety of
price points and styles. In many areas, utilities offer
rebates and vouchers that can lower the price further.
