Showerhead Exchange on September 21
The last Greeley showerhead exchange of the year will be on Saturday, September 21 from 8 a.m. until noon. The event takes place at the Greeley Farmers’ Market at the Union Pacific Depot, 902 7th Avenue in downtown Greeley.
City of Greeley water customers can bring and exchange old showerheads for new high-efficiency models. To swap their old showerhead for a new high-efficiency model, people should bring a Greeley Water bill with their water account number. Many types of showerheads are available for exchange including handheld models. Customers can choose a showerhead in either white or chrome to match existing bathroom fixtures. You can exchange several showerheads if you have several bathrooms that need an upgrade.
- The new showerheads are EPA WaterSense labeled. Products with the WaterSense label are independently certified to use at least 20 percent less water than standard showerheads. These fixtures also perform as well, or better, than conventional models.
- Most people save about a gallon of water per minute or more with the new showerheads. This simple switch can save an average family about 2,700 gallons of water per year and approximately $70 in annual water and energy costs.
- Inefficient showerheads not only waste water, but they also consume energy used to heat that water. Every time you take a shower with an efficient showerhead, you save energy. It is equal to the amount of electricity it requires to light a 60-watt light bulb for 8 hours.
- Property managers or owners of multifamily complexes can also participate in showerhead exchanges. Please call 970-350-9874 to make arrangements.
