PMI, AWE Collaborate on Water Efficiency Study

ROLLING MEADOWS and CHICAGO, Ill. – Plumbing Manufacturers International and the Alliance for Water Efficiency recently formed a partnership on a study to determine potential water savings that could be achieved by replacing older, inefficient toilets with high-efficiency models.

The “Saturation Study of Non-Efficient Water Closets in Key States” will focus on Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia and Texas – all states which have recently experienced serious water shortages. The study will determine the number of non-efficient toilets that remain within the installed residential base of plumbing fixtures, as well as determine the potential water savings that could be achieved through replacement of those non-efficient models.

The study will be completed by the end of February 2017 and will be posted on the PMI and AWE websites.
