Tommy Linstroth announced American Standard's Water Saving Retrofit Results during 23 media interviews yesterday from, where else? The bathroom!

Low flow delivered high satisfaction with at least 25 percent in water savings for 21 homeowners in two suburban Atlanta communities who volunteered to replace their existing plumbing products with high-efficiency WaterSense®-certified models.

If it comes as a surprise that people are finally happy with low-flow toilets, that was the point of this mass retrofit last fall that included replacing 71 toilets, 96 faucets and 55 showerheads in 71 bathrooms.

American Standard supplied all the products and retained building efficiency expert Tommy Linstroth, LEED-AP, to do the pre- and post-measurement.  The two communities in Atlanta were Serenbe in Chattahoochee Hills, GA, and Chastain Lakes in Kennesaw, GA.  Installation was handled by Georgia’s first GreenPlumber, Nick Marine of Marine Plumbing in Marietta, GA.   Read more about it.
