Installing low-flow sink fixtures is a good way to protect our water resources while saving money at the same time. These fixtures can save as much as 30% of the water flow without affecting the pressure or performance. There are several models that are popular for this.
The WaterSense label on a low flow faucet means the faucet meets certain EPA criteria for water conservation. Each fixture that is replaced with a WaterSense labeled faucet can save more than 500 gallons per year. The majority of the bigger brands will work with the EPA to be able to place that label on their products.
Kohler is one of the leading lines of kitchen and bathroom faucets. Most of their newer models will carry the WaterSense label. Kohler fixtures are available at most home improvement retailers.
Another recognized brand among sink fixtures, American Standard offers dozens of fixtures that meet the EPA WaterSense standards. American Standard is also a more affordable option than other brands.
Known for style as much as function, Moen makes more than three dozen fixtures that meet the EPAs standards for WaterSense. These fixtures can be found for bathroom or kitchen applications.
