Moen does not stop there. They offer Bathroom Faucets that Optimize water flow without sacrificing performance. Their new bath faucets feature a 1.5 gallon per minute (gpm) flow rate which uses up to 32% less water, while still maintaining the same great performance you expect. The result is significant water conservation, faucets that are certified to meet WaterSense® criteria, and contribution towards maximizing LEED® points.
Moen is also dedicated to designing kitchen faucets that fit your life and drive innovation. Our high-performance, water-efficient kitchen faucets have a multi-function spray wand featuring water-saving settings that use up to 32% less water.
A 10-minute shower can use between 25 and 50 gallons (95-189 liters) of water. That’s because typical high-flow shower-head use between 6-10 gpm (23 — 28lpm) Moen’s Eco-Performance shower-heads use up to 30% less water while contributing towards maximizing LEED points. These water-efficient rain-shower, single and three-function shower-heads outperform the standard flow rate without sacrificing performance.
Faucet aerators force air into the water stream to maintain pressure. In addition to maintaining rinsing efficiency, Moen’s Eco-Performance aerators restrict flow from the standard 2.2 gpm (8.3 lpm) to 1.5 gpm (5.7 lpm), effectively using 32% less water. They are simple add-ons that can make any faucet compliant with many program certification standards.
Built to limit water consumption in public applications, these faucets feature an ultra-low flow of 0.5 gpm (1.9 lpm) making them easy on the environment. In addition, they’re making they’re made durable to stand up to hard use with money-saving and energy-saving performance.
