Free Water Saving Showerheads for Citrus County Residents

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on October 9, 2021

October is Energy Action Month and to celebrate, Citrus County Utilities and the Citrus County Department of Water Resources are partnering up to teach citizens how to shower better using a WaterSense approved showerhead.

Showering accounts for 20 percent of all residential indoor water use, or nearly 40 gallons per household per day. This equates to approximately 1.3 trillion gallons of water every year in the United States. This October, Citrus County is encouraging consumers to replace old showerheads with WaterSense labeled models to save energy, water, and other resources.

“Like all WaterSense labeled products, showerhead models that earn this label have been independently certified to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) criteria for water efficiency, force, and flow,” said Debra Burden, Citrus County Department of Water Resources Conservation Manager. “That means you’ll enjoy the same level of water pressure you’ve come to expect, all while saving water, energy, and money on your utility bills.”

Free Water Saving Showerheads for Citrus County Residents

By replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense labeled model, the average family can reduce its annual energy and water costs by more than $70 and save 2,700 gallons of water per year—the amount of water it takes to wash more than 88 loads of laundry. What’s more, because it takes energy to heat shower water, that family can save the amount of electricity it takes to power its home for 11 days every year just by switching to a WaterSense labeled showerhead.

To make it easy to try a water- and energy-saving showerhead, Citrus County Utilities is offering free Water Sense labeled showerheads to Citrus County citizens in the month of October.  Stop by the Lecanto Government Building to pick up yours.
