Yesterday, the Department of Energy’s Office of Enforcement issued a subpoena to Richard Graham of Long Beach, California seeking water efficiency information and sales records for the “Super Power Shower” in response to a complaint that it violates federal water conservation standards.  The Super Power Shower is sold by Mr. Graham on www.gambling-systems.com and other websites, which declare that the showerhead uses 10 gallons of water per minute - four times the 2.5 gallon per minute maximum set by Congress in 1992.  This action reflects the Department’s commitment to enforce DOE’s efficiency standards to ensure that all manufacturers play by the same rules and that consumers realize the water savings - and related energy and cost savings - mandated by Congress.
