Designer Plumbing Outlet Joins the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Watersense Program Giving Customers Eco Friendly Options joins the EPA's WaterSense program and adds "eco friendly" search options to help customers choose water-efficient products. These faucets and toilets are the new rave in the “green” home improvement movement.

Palm Beach Gardens, FL, November 26, 2008 --(, a virtual store for kitchen and bathroom fixtures, fittings and accessories has become a partner with WaterSense, an exciting water-efficiency program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This partnership is one of two steps DPO has taken to become eco friendly and help customers choose water-efficient products. In addition to joining the WaterSense program, DPO has enabled an “eco friendly” search option on the website so customers can limit their sorted items to products that manufacturers consider to be “green.”

The WaterSense partnership program makes it easy for Americans to save water and protect the environment by giving consumers information about the water-efficient plumbing products they can buy for their homes. WaterSense is partnering with manufacturers, retailers and distributors, and utilities to bring WaterSense labeled products to the marketplace and make it easy to purchase high-performing, water-efficient items.

As a partner of the WaterSense program, DPO displays the WaterSense label on quality, water-efficient products certified to meet EPA criteria that are found on the site. Most of these items are bathroom sink faucets and high-efficiency toilets that are designed to save water. In addition, customers can sort the wide variety of faucets, toilets and showerheads found on DPO, that are not WaterSense approved, but are not deemed “green” by their manufacturers, through an “eco friendly” search option.

“We feel it’s our duty to offer our customers a distinct “greener” choice when purchasing faucets and toilets from DPO,” said Founder and CEO Eric Strand. “By joining WaterSense and enabling the “eco friendly” search option on our site, we are giving customers the tools and knowledge to purchase the most water-efficient products available in this marketplace.”

The WaterSense label indicates that these products have been independently tested by third-party laboratories to meet EPA’s water-efficiency and performance criteria. In addition, customers can be confident that the products will all perform well and may help them save money in the long run. Designer Plumbing Outlet carries many plumbing manufacturers who are WaterSense partners: American Standard, Delta, Grohe, Hansgrohe, Danze, Moen, and Price Pfister.

According to WaterSense, the average American household uses about 100,000 gallons of water in a year, and 11,000 gallons of that are unnecessarily wasted each year due to inefficient toilets and faucets. If every inefficient toilet in the United States was replaced by a WaterSense labeled model, it would save 640 billion gallons of water.
