Delta Faucet Helps Americans Increase Water Efficiency in Time for Fix a Leak Week, March 17-23

INDIANAPOLIS, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Minor water leaks account for more
than 1 trillion gallons of water wasted each year in the U.S., which is equal to
the annual water use of more than 11 million homes, according to the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).1 In conjunction with the EPA WaterSense®
program’s “Fix a Leak Week”, Delta Faucet, the EPA’s 2013 WaterSense
Manufacturer Partner of the Year, informs consumers about leak detection and
prevention in the bath.2

“Since the start of the program, Delta Faucet has been a proud WaterSense®
partner, continuously developing new products and innovations that help save
water without sacrificing the experience,” said Paul Patton, senior research and
development and regulatory manager for Delta Faucet Company. “Repairing dripping
faucets or replacing outdated toilets and showers is an easy and cost-effective
way for consumers to rid their home of leaks.”

— A showerhead leaking at 10 drips per minute wastes more than 500 gallons
of water per year, the same amount of water it takes to wash 60 loads of
dishes in the dishwasher.3 Delta® WaterSense labeled showerheads, such
as the popular In2ition® shower with H2Okinetic® technology, provide up
to 40 percent water savings over standard showerheads, all without
sacrificing the comfort and convenience of the user experience or the
durability and life span of the product.
— Replacing older, inefficient toilets with new WaterSense labeled ones
could save up to 13,000 gallons of water per year and nearly $2,400 in
water and wastewater bills over the lifetime of the toilets.4 The Delta
Riosa® toilet is a high-performance, water-efficient model that offers
worry-free installation at an affordable price. Using just 1.28 gallons
of water, the Riosa toilet not only saves water, but is virtually
clog-free. The two-piece unit also boasts several smart innovations to
effectively eliminate the potential for leaks and make installation even
— Leaky faucets are another source of extreme water waste in the home.
Most leaks can be fixed by checking faucet washers and gaskets for wear
and replacing them if necessary. If replacing a bathroom faucet,
consider the new WaterSense labeled Compel(TM) faucet with Touch2O.xt
(TM)Technology. Inspired by the clean design and minimal details of an
urban high-rise, the faucet offers an entirely hands-free experience in
addition to the tap functionality.
With simple upgrades, saving water and lowering monthly bills can be easy. For
