New York – Fix a Leak Week took place March 16-22. WaterSense, a partnership program by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and creator of Fix a Leak Week, reports that household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide.
The holiday was meant to not only increase awareness of water conservation efforts and expand knowledge of best practices, but to emphasize the work the plumbing industry provides every day to meet these needs.
Cheryl Dixon, head of Brand Trade and Marketing for GROHE America, also knows the important role the plumbing industry plays in day-to-day living in the 21st century. "When it comes to ensuring our drinking water is safe and conserving as much water as possible, the work that plumbing professionals put in is so essential," Dixon said.
Dixon continued, "We know plumbers work hard to keep us safe, so we've made sure our products are doing their job, too. Sustainability and water safety are two of our core values and a top priority in the creation of every GROHE product from the design to development stages."
Dixon notes three products – Concetto kitchen faucet, Eurosmart line of faucets and fittings and the Tempesta line of shower heads and hand showers – that are compliant with CALGreen, California's Green Building Standards, a landmark initiative mandating sustainability and conservation measures in new construction projects, requiring all new buildings to reduce indoor water usage by 20 percent.
