All American Standard Faucets Go Green

Posted on November 15, 2009 by Nora DePalmaNo Comments

All American Standard bath faucets, such as Tropic, are WaterSense®-certified and will be lead-free to meet new 2010 standards.

All American Standard bathroom faucets are now WaterSense®-certified and will be lead-free to meet the upcoming new standards required by California and Vermont.

In addition, all American Standard kitchen and bar faucets sold nationwide will meet these new lead-free requirements. WaterSense does not certify kitchen and bath faucets for water-efficiency.

Meeting the EPA’s strict WaterSense maximum flow rate requirement of 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm), all American Standard residential lavatory faucets incorporate pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent water savings over standard models without sacrificing performance. According to EPA estimates, the average U.S. household can save over 500 gallons of water annually by installing WaterSense faucets.

All American Standard residential lavatory and kitchen faucets will now contain less than one quarter of one percent (0.25%) total lead content by weighted average. To attain this new lead-free standard, American Standard is one of the few brands that remains solid-brass, rather than turning to plastic components.
