PF WaterWorks launches “Water Conservation Kit for Dummies”
Partners with John Wiley & Sons, Inc. to market Water and Energy Conservation Products under the “For Dummies®” brand
HOUSTON – May 1, 2011 – Consumers want to do the right thing and water and energy conservation is becoming increasingly important, however most have difficulty finding easy-to-install cost effective water efficient products that help them achieve their goals of sustainability.
PF WaterWorks, Houston-based innovative and sustainable consumer products company, is pleased to launch the “Water Conservation Kit For Dummies” at the 2011 National Hardware Show. Customers will be amazed at how much water can easily and comfortably be saved with this kit. The kit includes both a WaterSense labeled easy-to-install showerhead and WaterSense labeled bathroom sink faucet aerators. These water-efficient plumbing fixtures will provide immediate savings with payback in just a few months. These products use about 20 percent less water and perform as well as, or better than, conventional models.
The kit can save over two hundred dollars annually for an average family of four while saving tens of thousands of gallons of water per household annually through increased water efficiencies, water reductions, and energy savings from reduced demand on the home hot water heaters, wells and septic systems.
“Working with Wiley, PF WaterWorks is utilizing the familiar Dummies Man icon and the internationally recognized yellow-and-black brand to help consumers discover a fun and easy way to select water and energy conservation products with confidence,” said Sanjay Ahuja, President of PF WaterWorks.
“Wiley has published a variety of titles focusing on sustainability and energy conservation including Alternative Energy For Dummies, Solar Panel Installation For Dummies, and Green Building and Remodeling For Dummies. The For Dummies branded water and energy products that PF Waterworks developed complement our efforts in this space and provide consumers a tangible, easy way to make a difference in the environment, while saving money,” said Marc Mikulich, VP of Wiley Brand Management.
