Conservation through Innovation
While quality and service are essential, we also want to do right by the planet. Besides our internal commitment to recycling and other “green” practices, we work hard to develop innovative products that promote conser vation and sustainability. Some notable examples include:
Nearly every one of our faucets flow at a rate of 1.5 GPM (gallons per minute). That’s a water savings of 0.7 GPM, or 32%, which goes beyond the already conservation-minded 2.2 GPM standard mandated by the Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992.
And, in accordance with all federal and state conservation codes, our showerheads flow at a maximum rate of 2.5 GPM, Some, when fitted with appropriate flow restrictors, can flow as low as 2.0 GPM.
Finally, our technologically advanced StyleTherm® is the first of its kind to fulfill California’s stringent new water conservation requirements, while providing users spa-like shower enjoyment at an affordable price point.
Clean Air & Climate Conservation
More than a third of our decorative finishes are PVD (physical vapor deposition), the most durable and environmentally friendly finish available today. The PVD manufacturing process involves no toxic or ozone- depleting chemicals, which means no hazardous waste to pollute our air or water supply. California Faucets produces the largest selection of decorative PVD finishes in the world.
Our fittings are made of high quality, solid brass. Unlike faucets made from inferior materials, which ultimately end up in landfills, brass is highly recyclable. In addition, many of our shower valves use biodegradable mud covers as opposed to the typical plastic variety.
California Faucets manufactures products that help builders meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements, which promote environmentally sustainable construction. Use of CaliforniaFaucets’ products can help substantially reduce indoor water usage and help projects obtain valuable LEED points.
