Every Drop Counts: Ways to Save Water in Your Home

We all know water is essential for life. Yet, billions of people around the globe lack access to clean, safe water. Climate change and increasing demand are putting a strain on this vital resource. Here in North America, the average household uses a staggering amount of water each day – with a significant portion going towards bathroom and kitchen activities. Imagine a family of four using a traditional faucet (5 GPM) for just two minutes a day while brushing their teeth. This translates to a staggering 40 gallons of wasted water daily! By switching to a CEC-compliant faucet (1.2 GPM), that daily usage drops to just under 10 gallons – a savings of over 30 gallons per day! This is where we, as a leading bathroom and kitchen brand, can make a real impact. At American Standard, sustainability is at the core of our product development. We're constantly innovating to create faucets, showerheads, and toilets that use less water without compromising on performance. But water conservation goes beyond the products we create. Here are some simple things you can do at home to make a big difference:    

 • Turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth or shaving. Every second counts!
 • Take shorter showers. Aim for 5 minutes or less.
 • Fix leaky faucets and toilets promptly. Even a small drip can waste gallons of water over time.
 • Upgrade to water-efficient fixtures. Looking for products that meet requirements of environmental groups such as:

   • Watersense® - The EPA Watersense® program makes it easy to select water efficient products and ensures confidence in those products with a label-program backed by independent certification and performance testing.

   • CEC - The California Energy Commission sets stringent standards for water efficiency in plumbing fixtures. CEC-certified faucets meet or exceed these standards, ensuring they use less water compared to traditional models.
