Save money. Save water. Help the environment. Sound good?

Installing low-flow aerators on your faucets can help you to keep excess water – and money – from gushing down the drain.  Aerators are easy to install and no tools are required. They simply screw onto the end of any faucet.

These inexpensive aerators (<$4) reduce water consumption without sacrificing water pressure. This model is best suited for bathroom faucets and only uses 0.5 gallons per minute (gpm) – a 75% savings over a standard 2.0 gpm aerator. According to some rough calculations, it will yield a payback in UNDER A YEAR if you use your faucet for just one minute a day (assuming your existing aerator is 2.0 gpm). In less than 300 days, you could be making money on your investment.

Go with the (low) flow!
