Easy Bath Hacks

Are you handy? If not, here are a few quick bath hacks to help you gain a few skills to make simple fixes to your bathroom.  If you are a person comfortable with do-it-yourself fixes, these videos are good reminders of projects that you can take on.

These projects can make your bathroom more efficient.  Sometimes a little change can lead to big savings – of water and utility bills.

On September 15, Greeley is having a showerhead exchange.It is your chance to receive a free showerhead in exchange of your old one.  At the exchange, we are also giving away kitchen and bathroom faucet aerators. This videos will help you install your new fixtures.

Replace Your Showerhead

Switching your showerhead to a WaterSense labeled model saves 2,700 gallons of water annually and enough energy to power your home for 11 days.  All of the showerheads at Greeley’s showerhead exchange are WaterSense labeled models.


Replace Your Faucet Aerator

Replacing the aerators on your faucets with WaterSense labeled models saves 700 gallons of water and enough energy to power your hair dryer every year. The aerators that the city give to residents are WaterSense labeled.



Replace Your Leaky Toilet Flapper

For just a few dollars, a new toilet flapper ends leaks that can waste 30 gallons of water or more per day.  Does your toilet have a silent leak? Drop a dye tablet (available at the showerhead exchange) or 10 drops of food coloring into your toilet’s tank and wait 10 minutes. If the dye shows up in the bowl, you have a leak that can probably be fixed by replacing a worn toilet flapper. Don’t forget to flush afterwards to remove any leftover dye.
