Faucets & Aerators

SinkWe are claiming points in the low flow categories of LEED for Homes (WE3).  I’ve posted before about our dual flush/low flow toilets, but we also claimed points for our low flow faucets.  We chose the style that is shown here, however these faucets are rated at, I believe, 1.8ish gallons per minute.

That’s not low enough to get the “very high efficiency” rating, so we worked with our Kohler rep and found aerators that got us down to 1.5 gpm.  1.5 gpm got us the two points for very high efficiency.
