Products in Development
WaterSense issues a Notice of Intent (NOI) to inform the public that it intends to carry out work to develop a specification. The NOI also describes additional data needs or questions that need to be answered before a draft specification is developed. The program may make the decision to hold off on developing a specification to allow for additional research. Draft specifications are released for public review and comment before being issued as final specifications.
WaterSense is currently considering the following water-saving product categories and service programs for specification development:
- Cation Exchange Water Softeners
- Soil Moisture–Based Irrigation Control Technologies
- Bath and Shower Diverters
- Pool Covers
- Can my product get a label?
Requests for Information
In 2019, WaterSense reviewed five of its existing specifications and made the decision not to revise them. In April 2020, the program released a Federal Register notice summarizing the decision. The notice also requests input and information on any data, surveys, or studies to help assess consumer satisfaction with WaterSense labeled products, which could inform future product specification development. The request and information related to the 2019 review are on the Product Specification Review page.
