Delta Faucet Company Helps Americans Increase Water Efficiency for World Water Day


PR Newswire — March 22, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — According to the World Economic
Forum, the water crisis is the number one global risk based on impact to
society, with 663 million people lacking access to safe water.1 In recognition
of World Water Day on March 22, Delta Faucet Company, a 2015 WaterSense®
Sustained Excellence Award winner, aims to educate consumers on water and offer
ways to increase water efficiency at home.

“The lack of water on a global scale is a constant reminder of how precious this
resource is and the importance of conservation,” said Paul Patton, senior
manager, research and development and regulatory for Delta Faucet Company. “As a
proud WaterSense® partner, Delta Faucet strives to provide smart solutions that
help consumers address water efficiency in their homes.”

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ten percent of
homes leak 90 gallons of water or more per day.2 While leaks can go unnoticed,
there are a few areas that can help address water-waste at home:

— Homeowners can reduce toilet water use by 20 to 60 percent – nearly
13,000 gallons of water per year – by replacing older, inefficient
toilets with new WaterSense-labeled models.2 Toilet installation is even
easier with the SmartFit® tank-to-bowl connection feature in all Delta®
toilets, which reduces potential leak points and prevents
— One of the easiest water-efficiency upgrades to make in the home is in
the shower. With more water-efficient options available than ever, there
is no need to sacrifice the shower experience. The Delta
In2ition®two-in-one multi-setting showerhead with H2Okinetic® Technology
provides a warmer, more drenching shower experience that blankets the
body while using 20 percent less water than standard showerheads.
— The Delta Linden(TM) pull-out kitchen faucet with the Multi-Flow(TM)
feature delivers a stream and spray setting flow rate of 1.5 gallons per
minute for water efficiency and a 2.0 gallon per minute stream setting
for high performance – both more efficient than the industry standard of
2.2 gallons per minute. The faucet also offers Touch2O® Technology,
allowing users to turn the water on and off with a simple tap anywhere
on the spout or handle.
Simple kitchen and bathroom upgrades can save water and potentially lower
monthly bills. For additional information about water-efficient products and
