Made from a durable crystal-clear resin, the crystal handle can be used with any S, SP or MS series faucet. Many existing faucets can easily be converted to this handle by simply replacing the handle, or the crystal handle can be purchased fully assembled to the faucet.

The First Year of Low Lead

In July 2011, the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) issued its first annual report on plumbing products sampled and tested for lead concentrations in 2010. All drinking water faucets that were sampled and tested were reported to comply with the state’s new low-lead law.

Sensible Savings

Five years ago, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched WaterSense, a volunteer partnership program that promotes water efficiency to protect the nation’s water supply. Targeting manufacturers and consumers alike, the program has had an impact on the way Americans view water use. Leslie Streicher, associate editor of Water Quality Products, checked in with program leader Veronica Blette to learn about the motivation behind our changing water culture and what water efficiency means today.

A Sustainable Surprise

A few weeks ago, the local electric utility visited my apartment building to give the residents free efficiency upgrades. The focus was not solely energy, however—in addition to replacing all of the building’s standard light bulbs with energy-efficient ones, the company installed free water-efficient faucets and showerheads in each unit.
