Delta Faucet Company Named 2013 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency WaterSense® Manufacturer Partner of the Year

2013 WaterSense Parter of the YearWhether you’re looking to upgrade your bathroom or simply replace an outdated fixture, consider Delta® WaterSense® labeled faucets, showerheads or toilets to help increase your home’s efficiency and save money, while still enjoying maximum performance.

The WaterSense program is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) partnership program that aims to protect the future of the U.S. water supply by providing people with easy and identifiable ways to conserve water. Look for the WaterSense label on Delta lavatory faucets, toilets and showers to ensure your new product meets the EPA’s water conserving guidelines.

Delta Faucet Company has been recognized as a 2013 and 2011 WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year for its ongoing commitment to water efficiency.

Here’s a sampling of what we’re doing to support water conservation around the globe:

Product Innovations

  • Since 2012, 100 percent of Delta lavatory faucets meet WaterSense standards. In addition, all Delta toilets also meet the efficiency and performanceguidelines outlined by the program.
  • In 2010, when the WaterSense program instituted specifications that showerheads flow at fewer than 2.0 gallons per minute (gpm), Delta Faucet Company became the first manufacturer to offer WaterSense labeled showerheads. By controlling the speed, movement and droplet size of the water, proprietary H2Okinetic® technology helps decrease water usage by up to 40 percent without compromising users’ shower experience.

  • In the absence of WaterSense specifications for kitchen faucets, Delta Faucet Company has actively promoted water efficiency in this space. Forordinary tasks, Delta Multi-Flow™ kitchen faucets flow at a water-efficient 1.5 gpm, saving up to 32 percent over faucets that flow at the industry standard in the kitchen of 2.2 gpm. A toggle on the Multi-Flow wand boosts flow, when needed, to quickly fill sinks, pots and vases.
