Caroma Receives EPA Watersense Certification on 20 Toilets

Caroma announced that 20 of its 30+ dual flush toilets for the North American market have been certified to carry the EPA’s new WaterSense label. This label ensures that a toilet uses 20% less water than the currently mandated 1.6 gallon toilets, and has also met rigorous testing requirements for performance. Caroma is continually working with the WaterSense approval board to make sure all toilets it manufactures are approved. The remaining toilets are expected to be certified by late summer.

Caroma was the first to commercialize development and production of dual flush toilets, nearly 25 years ago. A Caroma dual flush toilet can save a household as much as 30,000 gallons of water a year.

WaterSense is sponsored by the EPA and is designed to protect the water supply by promoting water-efficient products and services. The testing for WaterSense certification is done by an independent third party.
