Zurn’s “Stand Up for the Earth” Water Conservation Campaign Embodies Values of World Plumbing Day 2016

“Fresh water is in finite supply on Earth and as the key to life is without question our planet’s most precious natural resource.” – World Plumbing Council

ERIE, PA - Zurn Industries, LLC’s observance of World Plumbing Day 2016 (March 11) includes its model water conservation campaign, “Stand Up for the Earth,” a program of online water management tools and information complemented by an ever-growing roster of maximum water-efficiency solutions.

In 2015, Zurn launched the “Stand Up for the Earth” initiative to equip stewards of water with an in-depth resource to meet or exceed water savings standards, including the stringent mandates established in the drought-stricken state of California: www.zurn.com/standupfortheearth

The online education campaign is reinforced by real-world, landmark solutions that achieve industry-leading plumbing and water-savings standards, such as the Zurn EZCarry™ High Efficiency Toilet and Carrier (HETC) System. This new technology combines two highly engineered components: a hydraulically-optimized carrier and the EcoVantage® 1.1 gpf wall bowl system. Third-party verified testing confirmed that the Zurn 1.1 gpf HETC system evacuates waste more than twice as far as industry-standard 1.28 gpf systems and up to three times as far as other systems. This Zurn innovation is expected to improve overall acceptance of low-flow toilet systems because it removes the likelihood of line clogging.

“Zurn is the standard-bearer of water efficiency,“ says Ali Daniel, Director of Sustainability for Zurn.  “The need to intelligently manage water usage does not recognize state or national borders. Zurn is always available to help building owners, facility maintenance professionals, municipalities, and the AEC community save water, time and money.”

The World Plumbing Council created World Plumbing Day, which is observed each year on March 11. This year, the Council stated, “Fresh water is in finite supply on Earth and as the key to life is without question our planet’s most precious natural resource.”
