Delta WaterSense Program
With showering accounting for approximately 17% of residential indoor water use in the United States, the EPA has developed new standards for water-efficiency in the shower. Delta Faucet is one of the first in the industry to qualify for the new WaterSense® program developed by the EPA for shower-heads and hand-showers.
Currently, over 50% of Delta’s bath suites feature shower-heads and hand-showers which meet WaterSense® requirements – with seven of those suites featuring an H2Okintetic® showerhead that flows at 1.5gpm while providing the feel of an enhanced flow of 2.5gpm. All without sacrificing the comfort and convenience of the user experience or the durability and life span of the product.
Delta® shower-heads and hand-showers which meet WaterSense requirements use between 20-40% less water* than the industry standard while our lavatories which meet WaterSense requirements use 32% less, and all perform as well or better than their less efficient counterparts.
*Based on flow rate for shower-heads and hand-showers of 1.5gpm or 2.0gpm versus Industry Standard of ASME.A112.18.1/CSA.B125.1 of 2.5 gpm (waiting for confirmation on the ASME and CSA standard)
†Based on flow rate for lavatories of 1.5 gpm versus Industry Standard ASME.A112.18.1/CSA.B125.1 of 2.2 gpm
