Zurn renews its commitment to water efficiency and sanitation in honor of World Plumbing Day
Zurn Industries LLC joined plumbing organizations and their members in recognizing World Plumbing Day (March 11, 2014) with a renewed pledge to continue offering solutions that achieve significant water efficiency and sanitary water environments.
The World Plumbing Council established World Plumbing Day to promote the role of plumbing in improving public health and safeguarding the environment. The organization’s website says, “Plumbing is an integral part of human history and its future.”
“Everything Zurn does is aligned with the values represented by the observance of World Plumbing Day,” said Scott McDowell, global vice president of marketing and business development for Zurn. “In an age when the demand for potable water is outpacing supply, Zurn has long provided the products needed to achieve both water efficiency and water sanitation.”
The roster of Zurn products that help people use less water and create a sanitary environment includes the ZTR6203 flush valve for urinals, launched on World Plumbing Day 2013 as the companion product to the ZTR6200 sensor flush valve for water closets introduced the previous year. Other such products include sensor faucets, backflow preventers with freeze-protection devices, and GO BLUE flush valves.
Zurn also has created a proactive education program with American Institute of Architects-approved CEU courses on topics that include sustainable restroom design, creating a sanitary water environment and innovative water conservation fixtures.
In addition, Zurn’s website offers a water usage calculator, a helpful tool for a design team to compare the efficiency of water fixture systems and make the appropriate specification.
