Overview

Prepare your plumbing solutions and equipment to enter North American and global markets with confidence

Did You Know?

  • Research indicates that as much as $298 billion will be required over the next 20 years to keep stormwater systems functioning properly. 
  • Digital systems, like the Flo water security and management system, are designed to use algorithms to monitor water pressure, temperature, and flow rate, to help deliver maximum performance and efficiency.

The ideal plumbing solutions—ones that mix durability, affordability, and efficiency—are in high demand in markets all over the world, both for new construction projects and for replacing old plumbing systems. To be eligible and available for those projects, your products will need to meet a local market’s unique requirements.

A partnership program sponsored by the EPA, WaterSense® promotes water efficiency and water-efficient products, and we provide product certification services for a variety of plumbing products to WaterSense® requirements.
