WaterSense chief details progress of flushometer, commercial bowl certification

About 11,000 different products are carrying the WaterSense label. Labeled products must be 20% more efficient than required under national standards. Each standard comes along with a performance requirement in addition to the water conservation requirement. There are 26.7 million flushometer valves in use and 500,000 are sold annually. They plan to test matching bowls and fittings from manufacturers and then mix and match bowls and flush valves.

CRYSTAL CITY, VA. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plans to issue a draft WaterSense standard for flushometer valves and commercial water closets some time this summer, said WaterSense Lead Engineer Stephanie Tanner and EPA contractor Robert Pickering, environmental engineer, Eastern Research Group Inc. Tanner and Pickering provided a WaterSense program update at the International Emerging Technology Symposium here in late April.
