Low flow showers don't compromise the bathing experience
Water-saving fixtures are becoming more important to meet water use restrictions in many parts of the country.
At the 2016 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, Jerry Capasso, product manager at Moen, reviewed the company's low-flow shower products that are designed to meet the tough standards.
For instance all of Moen's kitchen fixtures meet the 2015 emergency regulations from the California Energy Commission that establish standards that improve the efficiency of most types of water water appliances in homes. The Moen team is working to develop additional residential lavatory faucet and showerhead solutions that also meet these regulations, Capasso said.
