Understanding Water Efficiency Products for Your Home

Understanding Water Efficiency Products for Your Home

One of the most critical goals we at Indiana American Water have is wise water usage of Hoosier water resources. Wise water usage is critical to maintaining the waterways and groundwater aquifers we use to supply homes and businesses across the state, ensuring they remain plentiful for generations to come.

We encourage our customers to join us in our wise water usage efforts. Improving your home’s water efficiency is an excellent way to reduce water use for the benefit of your family and the environment. Upgrading your home’s plumbing fixtures provides effortless water conservation for the lifetime of the equipment. The Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program is designed to help consumers identify water-smart solutions for their homes.

What is WaterSense?

WaterSense is a program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The program provides consumers with resources to aid in home water conservation, as well as a labeling program to help you easily identify plumbing products that are rated for water efficiency and performance.

About WaterSense Products

The WaterSense program identifies products that are certified as meeting the EPA’s criteria for performance and water efficiency. These products have earned independent certification by a third party. The WaterSense label displayed on approved products make it easy for consumers to identify the products that will help them conserve more water throughout their homes.

The WaterSense label tells consumers important information about the product. Products marked with a WaterSense label offer key advantages to users:

  • Compared to less efficient models, WaterSense products offer equal or better performance
  • Against comparable products, WaterSense products offer 20 percent greater water efficiency
  • WaterSense products often utilize technology options to help users gain water efficiency at home
  • With WaterSense products, users can experience measurable results supporting their water conservation efforts

When improving the water efficiency of your Hoosier home, upgrading to WaterSense products is the way to go. When you make your home more water efficient, your efforts will help prolong the water sources serving your community while reducing your monthly water, wastewater and energy bills.
