As water conservation becomes an increasing concern for home builders and homeowners everywhere, the EPA continues to make green plumbing a priority with their WaterSense certification. A WaterSense certified lavatory faucet will use a maximum of 1.5 gallons of water per minute, reducing a standard lavatory faucet’s flow of 2.2 gallons per minute by 30% without sacrificing performance.

Some states place an even greater focus on water conservation due to droughts. In April 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown mandated an Executive Order to address severely depleted water supplies across the state.
