zHome Receives WaterSense Certification!

October 18th, 2011 - Posted By: Elizabeth

Great news! zHome recently received word that all 10 units have successfully earned WaterSense New Home Certification. These are the first homes in the State, and among the first in the nation, to receive this recognition.

Certification in the EPA WaterSense New Homes Program means that all zHome units have been designed and third party verified to meet high performance water efficiency standards. Water Sense certified homes use at least 20 percent less water than a standard newly constructed home. zHome goes even further, demonstrating an amazing 75% reduction in water use as compared to a typical home. High-efficiency fixtures and good plumbing layout provide superior performance.

Thank you to the Cascade Water Alliance for partnering with zHome to demonstrate the potential of advanced water efficiency strategies. Cascade supported the project with WaterSense labeled toilets, showerheads, and bathroom faucets, and the innovative, real-time water use monitors.

Cascade is a wholesale water provider which serves 400,000 residents and 22,000 businesses in the region. Cascade and its members, including Issaquah, design water conservation programs and services throughout the area. They have a number of excellent programs and rebates.

Come see the pioneering water saving measures at zHome!
