How much water will I save by replacing my faucets with WaterSense labeled faucets or faucet accessories?

WaterSense anticipates that bathroom sink faucets and faucet accessories with maximum flow rates of 1.5 gpm, as well as certain 1.0 gpm pressure-compensating faucets and faucet accessories, will meet the requirements of the specification. A high-efficiency bathroom sink faucet flowing at 1.5 gpm can reduce flow rate by 32 percent over a traditional faucet with a maximum flow rate of 2.2 gpm. A faucet flowing at 1.0 gpm can reduce flow rate by 45 percent over a traditional faucet with a maximum flow rate of 2.2 gpm. Retrofit studies conducted in Seattle, Washington, and East Bay Municipal Utility District in California have shown that a household can save approximately 570 gallons per year by simply replacing existing bathroom sink faucet aerators with high-efficiency 1.5 gpm aerators.
