Delta Faucet Offers Americans Tips For Drips In Preparation For Fix A Leak Week, March 18-24

INDIANAPOLIS, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American family wastes more than 11,000 gallons of water each year due to common household leaks[1]. Fix a Leak Week, a campaign launched by the EPA in connection with its WaterSense ® program[2], aims to address this problem by educating consumers about leak detection and prevention. This year, in conjunction with Fix a Leak Week, March 18-24, Delta Faucet is encouraging homeowners to replace their outdated toilets and dripping showers – two common sources of leaks in the home – with easy-to-install water-efficient toilets and showerheads.

"A WaterSense partner since the program's inception, Delta Faucet Company is committed to helping people find better ways to experience water. One of the ways we do this is by introducing new products and innovations that make it easier for consumers to save water without sacrificing experience," said Paul Patton, senior product development manager for Delta Faucet Company. "Fixing bathroom leaks is often very simple to do and our newest products for the bath help make it even easier to retrofit old or outdated showers or toilets."

The EPA estimates that replacing a leaky or inefficient toilet with a WaterSense labeled toilet could save a family of four more than 16,000 gallons of water per year and approximately $2,000 in water and wastewater bills over the lifetime of the toilet[3]. The new WaterSense labeled Delta® Corrente™ toilet is a high-performance, water-efficient model that offers worry-free installation at an affordable price.

Using just 1.28 gallons of water, the Corrente toilet carries a rating of 10 out of 10 when it comes to flushing power and is virtually clog-free. The two-piece unit also boasts several smart innovations to virtually eliminate the potential for leaks and make installation even quicker:
  • SmartFit™ external tank-to-bowl connections use a metal bracket on the bottom of the tank to secure the bolts to the bowl. This eliminates the need for bolt holes typically found in the bottom of the tank. For convenience, the bolts are preassembled to the mounting plate. This innovation reduces the number of potential of leak points that could come from overtightening fasteners connecting the tank to the bowl.
  • Using a combination fill valve and flush valve, the factory-installed SmartFit™ supply line tucks neatly into a recessed channel on the back of the tank and enters the tank above the waterline, reducing the potential for additional external leak points. The supply line is long enough to easily reach the water outlet on the wall for quick and easy installation.
  • Inside the box is the SmartFit™ Multi-Tool. This multi-function tool includes a wrench specifically designed to fit the bolts and a two-in-one screwdriver adapter to secure the other mounting components. No additional installation tools are required.
  • Also included in the box is an EZ Out™ toilet removal kit, which helps make uninstalling an existing toilet easy. It provides many of the items needed for the job, including disposable gloves and scraper, a highly absorbent sponge, and a cloth for cleanup and to plug the floor drain when the toilet is removed.

Replacing leaky shower heads is another easy update for big water savings. Delta In2ition ® showers featuring H 2Okinetic™ technology can be installed in minutes on any existing shower arm. Featuring an integrated showerhead and handshower that can be used separately or together, the In2ition shower offers the flexibility and warmth of two streams of water at once. Now, with H 2Okinetic technology, this two-in-one shower design gives users the drenching feeling of more water.
