WaterSense Lavatory Faucet Boasts 
Easy-to-Use Contemporary Design

Price Pfister's über-modern Contempra Bath Faucet is EPA WaterSense Certified, and is also certified as meeting the National Science Foundation's 61/9 Annex G lead-free requirements. At present, the lead-free rule is mandatory in only in California and Vermont, but other states are expected 

The water-conserving faucet is engineered for a maximum flow of 1.5 gallons per minute. By adopting such water-efficient products and practices, homeowners can save as much as 30,000 gallons of water a year without any 
apparent 
sacrifice in performance

Or sacrifice in design.  “In the past, we've created contemporary designs for the mainstream consumer,” said Kevin Bean, group marketing manager, Price Pfister. “This time we really wanted to design a faucet that was undeniably modern, and made a statement for homeowners seeking a distinct look and experience.” (
The Contempra, which uses a single handle joystick control, is projected to retail for $89 in a Polished Chrome finish, and $99 in a Brushed Nickel finish.

Dual Flush Technology on a Budget
 Dual Flush toilets are a sensible idea that has caught on in much of the world where water is a precious, and expensive, commodity. The concept is simple: one button activates a flush that uses a significantly lower volume of water for fluids and paper – the setting needed most of the time. The full flush button uses the standard amount of water for solids.
 
Water district managers like the idea because it can vastly reduce water usage – typically 30 percent per household. That adds up quickly when spread across whole parched communities, which is why some parts of California and Texas have offered rebates towards the purchase of water efficient toilets.
 
But as the recession impacts state and municipal budgets, that rebate money is drying up. And money is tight in many households, too, so those families are less likely to replace their existing toilet with a high efficiency model this year.
 
That's where products like HydroRight‘s Dual-Flush Converter fit it. The water-saving adaptor kit retails for $24-$30 and can be installed in under 10 minutes without tools.
 
While the HydroRight unit is not the only water-conserving product of its type, what makes it stand out from its competition is independent 3rd party testing that verifies its claims. According to a Varitec Consulting study, the product reduced water consumption 36 percent in one condominium complex equipped with 3.5 gpf toilets, and produced a 21 percent savings in a similar community equipped with 1.6 gpf low-flow toilets. Depending upon local rates, that amounts to payback in 3 to 6 months.
 
The compact product is supplied in informative packaging, and other merchandising aids are available.
