Delta Faucet Company, America's faucet innovation leader, has been named 2011 WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The manufacturer of Delta®, Brizo® and Peerless® branded products was recognized for its outstanding support of the WaterSense program and ongoing commitment to promoting advancements in water efficiency.
"Delta Faucet Company was founded on innovation," said Jai Shah, Delta Faucet Company president. "As a WaterSense partner since the program's inception, and a three-time WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year, we will continue to focus our innovative spirit on creating products that transform everyday interactions with water and help people save water without sacrificing their experience or style."
First recognized as a WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year in 2011, Delta Faucet Company continues to support WaterSense labeled products and water efficiency by ensuring 100 percent of its bathroom collections offer a faucet and showerhead meeting EPA's efficiency and performance criteria. These efforts, coupled with a coast-to-coast water efficiency campaign in celebration of the EPA's annual Fix a Leak Week, helped the company secure its second WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year recognition in 2013.
In 2013, the company expanded its WaterSense labeled offerings to include two electronic bath faucets: the Delta® Dryden™ faucet with Touch2O.xt™ Technology and the Brizo® Odin™ single-handle faucet with SmartTouchPlus™ Technology. Both lavatory faucets allow the flow of water to be activated via touch or hands-free proximity sensing and automatically stop the flow of water after a period of time to help users reduce water waste without changing their behaviors.
Additionally, Delta Faucet introduced new WaterSense labeled multi-function showerheads and hand showers, paired with H2Okinetic® technology, to provide the feeling of more water while using less. These shower products offer a special "High-Efficiency" spray setting to provide optimal performance while conserving water.
Today, the company continues its commitment to water efficiency and the WaterSense program with the introduction of innovative new products and technologies for the home, including Delta FlushIQ™ Technology. This exclusive technology provides toilet overflow protection, leak detection and a touch-free flush to help homeowners save water and improve performance.
