Delta Faucet Company Encourages Water Efficiency to Support Fix a Leak Week 2017, March 20-26

PR Newswire — March 20, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Household leaks in the United
States can waste over one trillion gallons of water nationwide per year,
according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)1. This year during
Fix a Leak Week, Delta Faucet Company, a 2016 WaterSense® Sustained Excellence
Award winner, encourages homeowners to make simple updates around the home to
help reduce water waste and eliminate leaks.

“At Delta Faucet Company, we always look for ways to help consumers address
water efficiency without sacrificing their experience,” said Paul Patton, senior
research and development and regulatory manager for Delta Faucet Company. “In
honor of Fix a Leak Week, we encourage homeowners to join us in this effort by
making simple updates around the home to conserve water resources and save

Ten percent of homes have undetected leaks that waste 90 gallons of water or
more per household each day2. To combat this issue and deliver consumers peace
of mind, the Delta® Leak Detector, designed in conjunction with iDevices, can be
placed near a water source to monitor and identify the presence of unwanted
dripping or pooling of water. Its distinct shape and design enables the device
to detect small droplets and alert the user to leaks immediately via the home’s
Wi-Fi. The first detection of any water triggers a notification to a connected
smartphone anytime, anywhere. For further assurance, an audible alarm and
built-in LED lights also work to notify those in the home.

Swapping current fixtures with WaterSense-labeled products can eliminate leaks
and cut down on water-related costs. WaterSense-labeled products, which use at
least 20 percent less water, will lead to a more environmentally conscious
living space. All Delta lavatory faucets meet or exceed WaterSense requirements,
flowing at a rate of 1.2 gallons per minute. WaterSense-labeled shower heads and
hand showers are also available and coordinate with a wide variety of décor

Upgrading the bath with H2Okinetic® showers reduces the amount of water used
when showering while providing three times more coverage than a standard shower
head3. Each shower head and hand shower contains an internal system that
controls the speed, movement and droplet size of the water, creating the feeling
of more water without using more water.

Quick and easy upgrades around the home can reduce water waste and potentially
cut down on water-related costs for American homeowners. For additional
