EPA launched WaterSense in June 2006 as a national, voluntary partnership program designed to help reduce municipal water use across the country through water-efficient products, new homes, and programs.
The WaterSense program labels products that use 20 percent less water and perform as well as--or better than--conventional models.
The WaterSense label makes it easy for consumers to identify products and new homes that have been independently certified to meet EPA's efficiency and performance criteria.
Faucet aerators introduce air into the water stream to

Laminar Flow Outlets
Laminar flow (laminar stream) straighteners produce a
non-aerated water stream. Ideal for high flow applications
or healthcare facilities (no mix water/air). Laminar
spout-end devices deliver a crystal clear and nonsplashing
When the flow rate is too low to produce an aerated
or laminar stream, a spray device is used to produce a
miniature shower pattern to provide full coverage of the
hands during washing. Sprays are recommended for
use in public lavatories.
