What the Label Means

The WaterSense Label

WaterSense labeled products meet EPA's specifications for water efficiency and performance, and are backed by independent, third-party certification.

Certifying organizations help maintain the WaterSense label’s integrity and credibility by verifying and testing products for conformance to WaterSense specifications, efficiency, performance, and label use, and also conduct periodic market surveillance.

Products bearing the WaterSense label:

  • Perform as well or better than their less efficient counterparts.
  • Are 20 percent more water efficient than average products in that category.
  • Realize water savings on a national level.
  • Provide measurable water savings results.
  • Achieve water efficiency through several technology options.
