Q: What is ENERGY STAR®?

Q: What is WaterSense™?
A: WaterSense™ is similar to ENERGY STAR® in that it is the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program that helps to identify water efficient products. For a product to be WaterSense™ listed, it must meet strict requirements for both efficiency and performance. When you see the WaterSense™ symbol, you can be assured that the product is high quality, has adequate pressure, and will help you save on utility bills.
Q: Will I still get good water pressure while using a low-flow shower head or faucet aerator?
A: Our water saving products are preferred by utility companies, contractors, and government agencies and have been for over two decades because of their high quality and high user satisfaction. When a low-flow shower head or faucet aerator is manufactured properly, the aeration results in sufficient water pressure.
Q: How much can I save on my utility bills by using Simply Conserve products?
A: This depends on your local utility rates and your water and energy usage. However, you can be sure that when replacing CFL light bulbs with LED bulbs and replacing higher flow shower heads and faucet aerators with Simply Conserve low-flow options, you will see savings. For example, when replacing a faucet aerator that has a flow rate of 2.2 gallons per minute (which is a common flow rate for faucets) with a Simply Conserve aerator that has a flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute, the average person will save approximately $35 per year on their energy and water bills.
