EPA Adds Bathroom Faucets To WaterSense Program
In addition to all applicable ASME requirements, the flow rate for such faucets should meet the following:
The lower pressure level is designed to take into account plumbing systems, such as private water wells, in which water pressure is lower. The limits are for residential bathroom and light commercial buildings. Public lavatory and metering faucets are excluded.
Products meeting the WaterSense standards will include a WaterSense logo and manufacturers will be able to advertise and market their high-efficiency products.
All interested parties are encouraged to review the new draft specification. Written comments are due by March 23. E-mail comments to: email@example.com. All comments become a part of the public record.
