New Castle, Del. — WaterSense awareness has become a prevalent issue over the years and is now in effect and is helping to transform the plumbing industry. As a part of the global community, Speakman Company has been working to convert most of their commercial faucet line to meet the low flow standard of 1.5 gpm.
In response to WaterSense® development, Speakman, a quality leader in the commercial plumbing industry for 144 years, has now converted a majority of its faucet families to meet low flow requirement of 1.5 gpm, while still maintaining the high quality expected from Speakman Products.
Unlike many of our competitors, Speakman has also converted many of their popular faucets to 2.0 gpm. This transition is being made as Speakman has seen more and more requests for lower flow faucets from the market. With this change, Speakman will be certifying most of our commercial faucets to WaterSense®. Along with this change, Speakman’s –LF option will also become 1.5 GPM. Speakman will still carry some repair parts for 2.2 gpm aerators in the event customers have a demand for 2.2 gpm 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 frequently asked questions about low flow products, and links to the low flow product offering.
