Showerhead Exchange & Water-Saving Tips
Saving Water Inside and Outside Your Home
TITUSVILLE, FL - (August 26, 2011) – Bring your old showerhead to the Merritt Square Mall on Sept. 2! Water conservation representatives from the cities of Titusville and Cocoa will host a showerhead exchange by Macy's at Merritt Square Mall from 10 a.m. until 3p.m. on Friday, September 2. Come meet Winston the Water Dog while exchanging your showerhead and learning about ways to save water in your home.
Titusville and Cocoa water customers will receive new low-flow showerheads when they exchange their old high-volume showerheads. The cities are offering their water customers free showerheads that have multiple flow settings (from fine to coarse).
“Changing out your old showerhead for a new one is a simple way to save water,” explained Maureen Phillips, City of Titusville Water Conservation & Public Outreach Manager. “By exchanging out an old showerhead with a flow rate of 3 gallons per minute for a new one with a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute can save 15 gallons of water during the typical 15-minute shower.”
Both the cities of Titusville and Cocoa have year-round exchange programs whereby their respective water customers can change out old high-volume showerheads for low-flow showerheads. “This is the second year we held the exchange at the mall,” said Catherine Carter, Cocoa’s Water Conservation and Public
Relations Officer. “Normally, the customer has to come to us, this way we are coming to them.”
In addition to learning about saving water inside your home, information on saving water outside your home will be available during the exchange. Winston the Water Dog, Titusville’s conservation ambassador will also be on hand to greet participants.
To participate in the exchange and receive a new low-flow showerhead, you must turn in your old showerhead. To learn more about the exchange and water conservation, contact the City of Titusville’s Conservation Office at (321) 383- 5669 or the City of Cocoa’s Conservation Office at (321) 433-8705.
