Drought and other water supply issues have caused many communities to place restrictions on the amount of water households should use. One way consumers can help conserve water is by switching to low-flow faucets.
Low flow does not mean water just trickles out of the faucet, which is one of the main concerns consumers have when considering these products. High-pressure technology incorporated into the product allows for similar or better flow (as compared to non-low-flow) with less water usage. A few of the companies that offer low-flow faucets include:
Additionally, for water-conscious consumers who rent or who don’t want to replace the entire faucet unit, aerator attachments, like those by eartheasy, can convert a standard faucet to low-flow without having to replace the unit.
