Across the country, there is a growing urgency to conserve water whenever possible. Some regions have experienced water
shortages and increased water rates. Using water-saving
toilets is the best way to conserve water and save on utility bills.
The National Efficiency Standards, published by the EPA, outline current standards for water efficient products and
WaterSense labeled product standards.
WaterSense Certified Products
Plumbing products that carry the
WaterSense label have been certified to be at least 20% more efficient without sacrificing performance. The EPA
created this national program to partner with water utilities, manufacturers, and retailers to encourage the use of
water-efficient products and practices.
WaterSense plumbing products meet the EPA's criteria for water efficiency and performance and help save billions
of gallons of water each year in the United States.
Current Water Conservation Legislation
Many cities and states have laws requiring water efficient
toilets. Oftentimes, rebates are available locally. The EPA has regional offices that provide environmental information
and services. Below is a a summary of some recent legislation by states leading the way in water conservation.
By executive order, Californians must reduce water use by 25% by February 2016. The governor's mandatory order is in
response to extreme drought conditions affecting the state.
Local water agencies are required to adjust their rate structures to reflect conservation pricing and discourage water
waste—including but not limited to surcharges, fees, and penalties.
Rebates may be available. Please check with your local sales representative or email

Texas requires water saving standards for
urinals sold in the state. As of January 1, 2014, Texas (HB 2667) mandates all toilets and urinals sold in Texas
must meet new efficiency standards.
Georgia's Water Stewardship Act (SB370) requires high efficiency plumbing fixtures for both residential and commercial
installation as of July 2012.
urinals must be WaterSense certified and "any person who installs any toilet, faucet, urinal, or showerhead
in violation of this code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor."
