Recommended WaterWise Products & Fixtures for Your Home
California has experienced episodic droughts, leaving many communities with limited access to water. The WaterWise initiative aims to reduce water waste state-wide and ensure all California residents have access to clean and safe water.
WaterWise products use water more efficiently. These include low-flow showerheads, low-flush toilets, hyper-efficient water heaters, and smart inline water leak detectors.
Orange Coast Plumbing sells and installs WaterWise products that reduce water consumption by up to 60%, improve comfort, and lower your home insurance premiums.
High-Efficiency, Low-Flush Toilets
By federal law, all toilets installed after 1992 can use 1.6 gallons per flush maximum. High-efficiency toilets go above and beyond the 1.6 gallons per flush, using a peak of 1.28 gallons per flush. Some use even less.
Kohler High-Efficiency Toilet Tanks & Bowls
The Kohler Highline® Classic Comfort Height® toilet boasts an impressive 1-gallon per flush tank, saving up to 5,000 gallons of water annually.
We also stock the Highline Toilet and Wellworth Toilet bowls with Pressure Lite flush technology. These high-quality bowls can provide up to 50 years of reliable performance. That’s a whole lot of flushes for your money.
All models qualify for the SoCal Water$mart rebate program.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters offer several benefits.
- Reduced water consumption
- Near-instant hot water
- Extended appliance life vs. conventional water heaters
- Small appliance size; can be installed indoors or out
We stock the Noritz EZTR50 — a Wi-Fi-capable tankless water heater that can replace a 75-gallon tank water heater.
It lets you control water temperature from a phone app, while saving loads of cash on your water and energy bills.
Shower & Faucet Flow Restrictors
The Moen Croma Showerhead is a one-function full spray fixture that meets the EPA WaterSense(r) criteria of performance and conservation.
The ProFlo Water Aerator saves you 30% more water without sacrificing performance. Plus, it has an anti-liming honeycomb screen aerator.
Hot Water Recirculation Pumps
Hot water recirculation moves water in a continuous loop. Cooled and unused water returns to the water heater; hot water remains close to the point of use, arriving almost instantaneously at the tap or shower. Recirculation eliminates wasted water, energy, and time.
The UP15-10B5/TLC circulator is a single-speed pump with a wet rotor design. The timer enables easy operation, and the solid bronze construction ensures reliability and minimal maintenance.
Moen Flo® Water Leak Detector with Smart Shut Off
The Moen Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shut Off tracks the water temperature and pressure in your plumbing system. It takes 7-10 days to learn your behavior and use patterns, after which it can detect pinhole leaks and even drips. The shut-off feature kicks in automatically when it senses a leak, preventing catastrophic damage.
- Automatic shutoff in case of leak, including slab leaks
- Lower insurance premiums
- Ability to control water flow from an app
- Insight into your daily water use
Slab leaks are devasting, often causing significant damage and entailing costly repair and mold removal. You may have to move out of your home for several months. Worse, some insurance companies don’t cover slow slab leaks — the type of leak the Moen monitor can detect and prevent.
