Many Water Departments encourage water efficiency by offering rebates for water efficient toilets and clothes washers, and by offering free water efficient showerheads and faucet aerators. Check with your Water Department prior to making a purchase to see what they offer.
Make sure to look for the WaterSense label when replacing water appliances. WaterSense is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program designed to encourage water efficiency in the United States through the use of a special label on consumer products. WaterSense is to water appliances, what Energystar is to electrical items.
