Did you know that the average household spends as much as $500 per year on their water and sewer bill and can save about $170 per year by making water-efficient upgrades? Thanks to the Environmental Protection Agency, there is a purchasing guide to get you on your way to saving water.
We are all familiar with the Energy Star labels found on various home and business appliances that protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Now, the EPA is encouraging everyone to think twice about water usage. The WaterSense label guides consumers towards purchasing water-efficient products and appliances that help save those natural resources, and in turn save money.
WaterSense selects products that perform as well or better than their less efficient counterparts and are 20% more water efficient than average products in the category. The products bearing this label realize water savings on a national level, provide measurable water saving results, and have obtained an independent, third-party certification. Look for the WaterSense label on bathroom sink faucets and accessories, new homes, showerheads, toilets, and weather-based irrigation controllers.Check out the full list of products that have the WaterSense label here.
