Saving Water is Easy with NEOPERL®
Changing your faucet aerator is an easy and affordable way to save water every time your faucet is used. Once installed, the PCA Perlator 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) consistently saves 30 percent of water use, compared to a standard 2.2 gpm faucet aerator. Saving water also means saving energy because a large portion of the domestic water used is hot water. The PCA Perlator 1.5 gpm is WaterSense certified, which is similar to Energy Star. The insert fits into a dual-thread housing, which conveniently fits both male- and female-threaded spouts.
