Low-Flow Faucet

Faucets use more than 15 percent of household water. WaterSense faucets save the average household more than 500 gallons a year. If every U.S. home installed a WaterSense faucet or aerator (aerators cost around $2), we could avoid about $600 million in energy costs.

Low-Flow Showerhead

The average shower uses about 11 gallons of water. You could save more than 2,300 gallons each year by installing WaterSense showerheads, which use less than 2.5 gallons per minute. Visit www.epa.gov/watersense for product listings.
