How much water can you save?
- Up to 570 gallons per year with efficient faucets or faucet aerators
- 7 gallons per day, per person by turning off the tap while brushing your teeth or shaving
How to choose a water-saving bathroom faucet
Look for WaterSense faucets, which are certified by the EPA to use no more than 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm). The WaterSense seal of approval is your guarantee of water-saving efficiency.
Standard bathroom faucets use 2.2 gpm, almost 50% more than WaterSense faucets.
Replace your old aerators with efficient aerators
If you’re not ready to replace your faucets, consider fitting them with high-efficiency aerators. Efficient bathroom aerators flow at 0.5-1.5 gpm, saving water while providing a steady stream.
