Title

Give the Bathroom a WaterSense Mini-Makeover 

Body

October is National Kitchen and Bath Month—an annual event promoting ways to add value to kitchens and bathrooms, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association. As a partner in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense® program, Greeley’s Water Conservation Program is helping homeowners save water and money on utility bills. In honor of National Kitchen and Bath Month this October, Greeley is encouraging bathroom “mini-makeovers.”

Fast Facts and Simple Tips

  • Bathrooms are by far the largest water users in the home, accounting for more than half of all indoor water. Giving your main bathroom a mini-makeover by installing a WaterSense labeled toilet, faucet, and showerhead can save your household about 7,000 gallons annually—or enough water to wash six months’ worth of laundry.


  • A WaterSense mini-makeover would also save enough electricity to run your refrigerator for two months!


  • A WaterSense bathroom makeover can save households as much as $80 dollars in utility bills annually. In fact, replacing your toilet, faucet, and showerhead with WaterSense labeled models can pay for itself in as little as two years.


  • Look for the WaterSense label on toilets, faucets, and showerheads and know that you’ll be saving water and money without a noticeable difference in flow. WaterSense labeled products are independently certified to use at least 20 percent less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.


  • There are currently more than 4,000 different WaterSense labeled models of bathroom fixtures available in wide variety of styles, colors, and price points.
