The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched the WaterSense program in 2006 to make it easy for consumers to identify high performing, water-efficient products. In addition to offering a label for water-efficient products, WaterSense provides resources that help consumers save water. In 2009, WaterSense launched the WaterSense labeled homes program, the first national certification for whole-house water efficiency. In 2021, WaterSense launched Version 2.0 of the WaterSense labeled homes program with the intent of adding flexibility and responsiveness to local priorities without sacrificing efficiency or performance. As a Home Certification Organization (HCO), GreenBuilder Coalition plays an important role in ensuring homebuyers and residents get the performance and water savings they’ve come to expect anytime they see the WaterSense label.
WaterSense has developed certification systems that describe the process and procedures by which products, homes, and programs that certify irrigation professionals can earn the WaterSense label.
WaterSense labeled products meet EPA’s specifications for water efficiency and performance, and are backed by independent, third-party certification. Certifying organizations help maintain the WaterSense label’s integrity and credibility by verifying and testing products for conformance to WaterSense specifications, efficiency, performance, and label use, and also conduct periodic market surveillance.
