Subject: Greeley Showerhead Exchange: October 19
The City of Greeley Water Conservation program is having a showerhead exchange. Residents are asked to bring old showerheads to the water conservation booth at the Greeley Farmer’s Market at the Historic Union Pacific Depot at 902 7th Avenue. The showerhead exchange will take place on Saturday, October 19 from 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon. The City of Greeley will give you a new low-water, high functioning EPA WaterSense labeled showerhead in exchange for your old model.
In August, the City of Greeley held successful showerhead exchange events. About 150 showerheads were distributed to 115 households at those events.
“People often joke about how low-flow showerheads don’t work and that is no longer the case,” said Ruth Quade, Water Conservation Coordinator for the City of Greeley. “Older models of low-flow showerheads were less effective as they slowed the water pressure down to a trickle. With these new models, low-flow doesn’t mean low-pressure or a low-quality shower.”
A low-flow showerhead can save you money on both water and energy. By replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense labeled model, the average family can save more than 2,900 gallons of water each year—the amount it takes to wash more than 70 loads of laundry. A WaterSense labeled showerhead can also save the amount of electricity it takes to power the average family’s home for 13 days and reduce their annual water and energy costs by more than $70 dollars.
With WaterSense labeled showerheads, you can have the satisfying shower you want, with the added satisfaction of saving water, energy, and money. All WaterSense labeled products are independently certified to perform well. Showers will provide the spray force and water coverage you have come to expect.
To get the free showerhead, you must get your water from the City of Greeley Water & Sewer Department. Please bring a water bill or Driver’s License to the exchange to prove residency.
