Did you know that by replacing your old, inefficient faucets and aerators with WaterSense-labeled models you can conserve water and lower your energy bill? It’s a win every time you turn on the tap.

WaterSense is a partnership program created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to protect the future of our country’s water supply by providing consumers with an easy way to identify water-efficient products, new homes and services.

The WaterSense label is applied to those products, which have been independently certified to be at least 20 percent more efficient than average products, and to offer the same or better performance.

WaterSense-labeled sink faucets and accessories use a maximum of 1.5 gallons of water per minute and do it without sacrificing performance. And because they use less water, less heat is needed, reducing your energy bill.

Replacing older inefficient faucets and aerators can save the average family 700 gallons of water per year. If every home in the United States installed WaterSense-labeled models, we could save $1.2 billion in water and energy costs and 64 billion gallons of water annually!

The WaterSense label can also be found on:

  • New Homes
  • Showerheads
  • Urinals
  • Toilets Rebates are now available from SSWD!
  • Weather-Based Sprinkler Controllers Rebates are available.

Make a difference every time you turn on the faucet by installing WaterSense-labeled faucets and aerators. And remember to turn off the tap when brushing your teeth or shaving.

SSWD even has free WaterSense-labeled aerators available at the office! Pick one up today; twist it into place and start using water wisely.
