Speakman Co. converts a majority of its faucet families to meet the 1.5-gpm standard
WaterSense awareness has become a prevalent issue over the years and is now in effect, helping to transform the plumbing industry. Speakman Co. has been working to convert most of its commercial faucet line to meet the low-flow standard of 1.5 gal per minute (gpm).
In response to WaterSense development, Speakman has now converted a majority of its faucet families to meet the low-flow requirement while still maintaining the quality expected from its products.
Speakman also has converted many of its popular faucets to 2 gpm. This transition is being made because Speakman has seen increasing requests for lower-flow faucets from the market. With this change, the company will be certifying most of its commercial faucets to WaterSense. Along with this change, Speakman’s –LF option also will become 1.5 gpm. Speakman will still carry some repair parts for 2.2-gpm aerators in the event customers have a demand for these faucets.
To support an ongoing effort to educate the market about low-flow products, Speakman has created a Low-Flow Faucet Section on the company website, which explains more about what it means to be low flow, answers frequently asked questions about low-flow products and provides links to the low-flow product offerings.
