FLOWER MOUND, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently recognized the Nano® Dual-Flush toilet from Niagara®, creators of water-saving toilets that use Stealth® Technology, with a 2019 WaterSense Excellence in Labeled Products in the Marketplace Award at the WaterSmart Innovations Conference in Las Vegas. This is the fifth award Niagara has received to date in 2019.
Recognized by the EPA for its excellence in reducing water waste, the Nano is one of the most water efficient toilets available, using 77 percent less water than most other toilets on the market. The Nano offers users the option of a .5 or .8 GPF with the same power as the industry standard 1.6 GPF, a significant improvement over older toilets, which can use up to six gallons per flush.
“We are proud to have our products carry the WaterSense label and be one of the partners who helped consumers save more than 3.4 trillion gallons of water,” said Carl Wehmeyer, Executive Vice President at Niagara. “And we are so honored to be recognized by so many influential organizations this year for our innovative products and spirit.”
According to the EPA, toilets account for 30 percent of the total water usage in an average home. Water conserving toilets not only help the environment, but they can help save money on water bills as well. The EPA estimates that water conserving toilets, such as the Nano® Dual Flush toilet from Niagara, can reduce water usage up to 60 percent every year, lowering monthly water costs significantly and saving more than 13,000 gallons of water annually.
