Deliver Increased Efficiency & Savings with Low-Flow Plumbing
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day at home.1 Approximately 70% of that usage occurs inside the home. While water is an essential need for many tasks in our daily lives, do we really know how much we use?
Installing low-flow plumbing fixtures in a few key areas can offer immediate savings, with the cost of upgrading commonly paid off in less than a year. Per the EPA, if every American household switched to low-flow fixtures, the United States would save about $8 billion on water costs annually.

Faucets considered to be low-flow have a flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute or less. Many older faucets use more than 2.5 gallons per minute, making them ideal for replacement for water savings.
Aerators & Flow Control
Replacing an aerator is an easy way to reduce the flow rate from an existing faucet without replacing the fixture.
Bathtub and Shower Valve Trim Kits
Efficient showerheads have a flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute or less. Older showerhead models can have flow rates of up to 5 gallons per minute, making them perfect for replacement for water savings. And, because water must be heated with electricity or gas, low-flow showerheads can positively impact your water heating bill due to less energy being used to heat less water.
Low-flow toilets have been designed to use approximately half of the water of traditional toilets. Given that 25% of the water usage in the average American home is from toilets (citation needed), upgrading to a low-flow toilet can offer instant water and cost savings.
