Products bearing the WaterSense label are generally 20 percent more water-efficient than similar products in the marketplace. The WaterSense label helps you identify high-performing, water-efficient products and homes as well as professional certification programs that embrace and encourage the use of water-efficient design. EPA develops specifications that outline the requirements that products, homes, and programs must meet to earn the WaterSense label.
