Eight Kohler Toilets To Bear EPA WaterSense Label

August 8, 2007
Toilets from Kohler Co. earned the WaterSense label, which means these toilets use at least 20 percent less water than standard 1.6 gallons-per-flush toilets.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is beginning to test products for its WaterSense program, a voluntary labeling program that encourages water efficiency and the use of water-efficient products that perform as well as or better than their less-efficient counterparts. As of April, eight toilets from Kohler Co. earned the WaterSense label, which means these toilets use at least 20 percent less water than standard 1.6 gallons-per-flush toilets while still meeting strict flushing performance guidelines.

The eight Kohler and Sterling toilets that will bear the WaterSense label are:

  • Kohler San Raphael® Power Lite® toilet - K-3393

  • Kohler Highline® Pressure Lite™ 1.1 gpf toilet - K-3519
