IWC delivers a 3-phase solution program:
Many off-the-shelf low flow devices have flow rates that are higher than specified – right out of the box. This happens for several reasons, including amount of water pressure and degradation of plastic components. Off-the-shelf low flow devices also have relatively low lifespans. IWC’s solutions are designed to provide sustainable and consistent savings that last more than 10 years through a combination of custom selected and fitted products.
Every property is unique, our Indoor Water Assessment will not only give you our solutions cost, but also ROI…

Customers report savings from 20% to 35%, annually.
It will vary, but typically will be in the range of 6 to 12 months. This is largely driven by your property’s Current Flow Profile and the Water and Sewer rates – which are constantly increasing. The higher your Current Flow Profile relative to your Ideal Flow Profile and the higher your rates, the shorter the Payback Period.
Because there are many variables outside of our control, we cannot provide written guarantees. These variables include occupancy, user habits, undetected leaks, and the use of other fixtures, appliances or equipment that are not included in the IWC solution.
No, you can continue to use your current fixtures as our fittings will only allow your targeted water flow rates to go through them.
In faucets and showers, they connect upstream from the Fixtures so that they can deliver a calibrated and fixed flow rate to the Fixtures. In toilets, we use reservoir displacement bags to reduce gallons per flush and allow the toilet tanks to fill sooner.
Many of our products have tamper resistant features that deter your tenants from removing them. Water Agencies and Energy Companies have learned that handing out free low flow devices (like aerators and low flow showerheads) does not produce noticeable and sustainable results. For this reason, our solutions are increasingly recognized as better, long-term solutions to water conservation.
Hotels: In guest rooms, showers use the majority of the water, however, by combining opportunities to save from sinks and toilets, the combined savings many times is significantly greater. In other areas of a hotel property, it will depend on the quantities and current flow rates of fixtures, equipment and appliances. The best way to determine is to let us help you conduct a thorough Water Audit.
Multi-Tenants: In units, kitchens and bathroom showers use the majority of the water, however, by combining opportunities to save from sinks and toilets, the combined savings many times is significantly greater. In other areas of a multi-tenant property, such as laundry and other locations, it, too, will depend on the quantities and current flow rates of fixtures, equipment and appliances. The best way to determine is to let us help you conduct a thorough Water Audit.
Kitchen faucets typically flow at rates much higher than guest rooms. In some cases, 4 to 5 times more gpm. It is important when using water to thaw food, that tight controls are in place to control the use of water efficiently.
IWC does not provide installation services. Most customers install/implement our customized solutions via their own maintenance and engineering staff. Some customers utilize third-party contractors and combine the work with non-IWC related installations, such as new angle stops or remodeling projects.
Most low flow products (sinks, showers, and toilets) flow at higher rates over time. Many flow at higher rates than specified “out of the box”. Because of this, there is usually opportunity to save significantly more, while maintaining guest satisfaction. We find out just how much more there is to save.
Every state takes a different approach. For example, in California, Oregon, and Maryland, as in other areas, there are many differing conservation requirements and many different financial incentives. Typically, when a Water Agency wants to put an aggressive Water Conservation program in place, they will combine excessive use charges with fines and penalties, independent of what other agencies are doing.
