WaterSense is to water use as ENERGY STAR® is to energy efficiency. If you’re looking for new bathroom fixtures that can help you cut down your water use, it pays to look for a WaterSense label. In fact, it pays about 20% of your utility bill as all products that carry the label are certified to meet all United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards for water efficiency.
Our professionals at Handyman Connection® of Boise are committed to helping you save water in your home, and we offer high-efficiency bathroom fittings that can do just that.
The federal standard for toilets is about 1.6 gallons per flush. That’s 1.6 gallons of clean water going down the drain. Newer models are able to deliver the same amount of performance with only 1.28 gallons or less per flush. Considering replacing your current toilet with a WaterSense model to save up to 20% of water every time you flush.
Faucets are second only to toilets when it comes to water use. The EPA estimates that about 15.7% of your usage is directly from your faucets. You can save up to 500 gallons a year by simply switching to a WaterSense labeled faucet.

When you wash your hands after doing your business, the grey water waste from the sink is stored in the tank, ready for the next flush.
