It's almost Earth Day so Waterhouse knows that you'll be out enjoying the fresh air and getting dirty planting all of those new trees.

So how are you going to clean up your act?

You know the global benefits of conserving energy and water - including saving on your own costs. But maybe you're not sure where to start. Here are a few ways to embrace earth-friendly practices in your own home and routine.

Remember, even the smallest steps help make a difference.

  1. Upgrade to green

With new government standards and technology, modern faucets are more efficient than ever. Saving up to 32% on your water usage, WaterSense certified faucets make going green practically effortless.

All of Moen's new bath faucets feature a 1.5 gallon per minute (gpm) flow rate which uses up to 32% less water, while still maintaining the same great performance you expect from Moen. The result is significant water conservation, faucets that are certified to meet WaterSense® criteri, and contribution towards maximizing LEED® points.

  1. Look, no hands

Homeowners waste gallons of water everyday by leaving their sink faucets running, but with hands-free electronic faucets you will ensure water is used only when needed.

Moen is dedicated to designing kitchen faucets that fit your life and drive innovation. Our high-performance, water-efficient kitchen faucets have a multi-function spray wand featuring water-saving settings that use up to 32% less water.


  1. On-demand hot water

Tank-less water heaters offer a great way to cut home energy costs without impacting performance. By flash heating water and eliminating tank-water heaters' long cycles you can cut your energy use by 20%.

See that Rinnai tankless water heater there on the wall? Suitcase-sized.  Fits in tight spaces.  Frees up space in your home.  It's a win-win-win situation!

  1. Optimal clean

Flow optimized shower heads can help further reduce water usage in the bathroom. With a 1.75 gpm, versus the industry standard of 2.5, cutting water consumption and energy costs by up to 30%.

With a Moen Eco-Performance shower head, you can use up to 30% less water without sacrificing performance. You'll find products throughout our showering our showering portfolio - including wall-mount, hand shower and rain shower shower heads that are certified to meet EPA WaterSense criteria.

5. Ditch the bottle

Avoid the need of plastic bottles with water filtering faucets. You will save both your wallet from the cost of purchasing bottled water and help unclog waste disposal sites of these increasingly hazardous items. 

Earth-conscious customers can now turn to AquaSuite, Moen's single-handle filtering faucet. It's installed in a single hole adjacent to the primary faucet and provides a quick source for filtered water.

6. Keep water in check

It's important to check all water-using products regularly. With the bathroom accounting for roughly 60% of a home's water usage, a leaky toilet or faucet can waste thousands of gallons a year without you knowing it. Moen's Flo, a Smart Home System that monitors and protects your home from leaks and water damage with a single smart water valve -- no additional sensors needed!  It will alert you through the app so you can fix an issue before any damage occurs.

So smart.  Smart Flo.

Our Waterhouse is green.
