WaterSense is a program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are certified by independent laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only high-efficiency toilets that complete the third-party certification process can earn the WaterSense label. WaterSense labelled toilets combine high efficiency with high performance. Design advances enable WaterSense labelled toilets to save water with no trade-off in flushing power.
