PRESS RELEASE — Caroma USA, Inc.

Caroma Leads Industry with 30 WaterSense Models

(Hillsboro, OR) - Caroma, the world leader in water-efficient bathroom products, now has 30 dual flush toilets approved for the EPA's WaterSense label. This label ensures that a toilet uses 20% less water than the currently mandated 1.6 gallon toilets, and is a quality product that also has met rigorous testing requirements for performance. Caroma has the most WaterSense approved toilets of any brand doing business in North America.

Caroma was the first to commercialize development and production of dual flush toilets, nearly 25 years ago. A Caroma dual flush toilet can save a household as much as 30,000 gallons of water a year. In addition to having the largest dual flush selection, the Australian company leads the industry with the number of HETs offered.

WaterSense is sponsored by the EPA and is designed to protect the water supply by promoting water-efficient products and services. Much like Energy Star has become a symbol for energy efficiency through its labeling program, it is expected WaterSense will encourage water-conservation behaviors and provide assurance to consumers that they are buying an efficient and high-performing product. The testing for WaterSense certification is done by an independent third party. For more information on Caroma HETs and other products, please visit www.caromausa.com.

Caroma developed the first successful dual flush toilet, nearly 25 years ago for the Australian market. Since then, the company has become known for leading-edge innovation and continually setting the standard in water conservation throughout the sanitary ware industry. Caroma's extensive range of dual flush toilets, low flush urinals and waterless urinals is quickly gaining momentum in the United States and Canada. The company is also known for some of the most cosmetically pleasing bathroom products, including sinks, faucets, bathware and commercial products. Caroma is a wholly owned subsidiary of GWA International Limited, a Brisbane, Australia-based company, which is listed on the prestigious Australian SAM Sustainability Index.
