American Standard offers WaterSense-certified products

by bkrigbaum@solagroup.com







American
Standard
 
announced its high-efficiency
urinals and flush-valve options meet or exceed the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency’s WaterSense program requirements for high
performance
and water efficiency, making it the first major plumbing manufacturer
to meet
these rigorous requirements.

 The
EPA’s WaterSense program requires commercial urinals
to use no more than 0.5 gallon per flush – 50 percent lower
than the
current federal standard of 1.0 gpf – while also meeting such
performance
standards as flush effectiveness and post-flush seal restoration.

 The
American Standard® line of high-efficiency urinals,
which feature FloWise® water-saving technology, exceeds these
requirements,
operating between 0.5 gpf and 0.125 gpf – thereby cutting
water use by as much
as 87 percent.

 The
designation marks the WaterSense program’s first
nonresidential plumbing-product specification aimed at helping
commercial and
institutional facility managers identify high-performing,
water-efficient
product solutions.

 “With
this new WaterSense program specification,
contractors, engineers, architects, owners and developers, as well as
their
facility teams, can easily distinguish products that meet best in-class
performance and water conservation criteria,” explains Jeremy
Cressman, vice
president and general manager, commercial trade, for American Standard.
“WaterSense-certified urinals and urinal systems will
drastically reduce water
consumption in commercial restrooms, without sacrificing style or
performance.”
