As for what's on the horizon, Lord believes “smarter” faucets and tub/shower systems will be entering the market soon. “They will give users greater control over turning their faucets on and off, conserving water (which in many cases is heated), which in turn will help save energy,” he comments.
Products are being tailored to take advantage of the same performance with less material and water use, according to Uhl. “Above-counter sinks hold less water, but bring the ‘task area’ closer to the user,” he explains. “WaterSense faucets can now be designed to have a more sophisticated, ‘tailored’ look. We see this trend as only gaining ground. Conservation is the only way forward for all of us."
