The IAPMO Group has launched a series of videos demonstrating the procedures for testing WaterSense toilets, showers and lavatory faucets. These consumer-oriented videos show the extra steps manufacturers take to reduce the consumption of water while still providing the expected user experience.
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and IAPMO have long led the development and codification of water-efficient products and systems, including working closely with the U.S. EPA on the various WaterSense provisions.
The city of Los Angeles has recognized IAPMO for its “endless dedication and commitment to providing the standard of plumbing and sanitation, all in an effort to protect public health and safety throughout the world.”
IAPMO develops and publishes the Uniform Plumbing Code®, the most widely recognized code of practice used by the plumbing industry worldwide; Uniform Mechanical Code®; Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub Code®; and Uniform Solar Energy, Hydronics and Geothermal Code™ — the only plumbing, mechanical, solar energy and swimming pool codes designated by ANSI as American National Standards — and the Water Efficiency Standard (WE-Stand)™. IAPMO works with government, contractors, labor force, and manufacturers to produce product standards, technical manuals, personnel certification/educational programs and additional resources in order to meet the ever-evolving demands of the industry in protecting public health and safety.
