A partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, WaterSense® focuses on providing Americans with a means to help protect the environment and reduce their water consumption by using water more efficiently. WaterSense promotes products that meet certain low-consumption criteria without sacrificing performance by labeling it with their logo.
Sloan has been a manufacturing partner of the WaterSense program since 2007, which is the same year the program was founded. Until recently, the WaterSense program focused their efforts primarily on residential products. The recent release of a product specification for High-Efficiency Flushing Urinals, however, marks the expansion of WaterSense into the commercial arena. As the WaterSense program continues to expand, it is expected to encompass other commercial products, including commercial toilets. No formal dates have been announced for such activities.
As a WaterSense Partner, Sloan is supportive of the efforts put forth by both the WaterSense program and the EPA alike. Sloan is an active participant in the development of the product standards that comprise this successful program.
In order to be recognized as a WaterSense product, the product must first have a WaterSense product specification. In accordance with such a specification, the product must conform to specific water-efficient requirements. Current products that can be certified, along with their requirements, include;
