Water Minister Mia Davies is encouraging Water Corporation customers in Quairading and Tammin to take part in a free Showerhead Swap initiative launching on Monday, 4 May 2015.

Showerhead Swap is a State Government program which allows Water Corporation customers in the towns to swap up to two old, inefficient showerheads for high-efficiency replacements free of charge.

“Households can save up to 7,000 litres of water every year by replacing their showerheads with more efficient ones,” Ms Davies said.

“To get involved you just need to take a copy of your water account and up to two old showerheads to your local Shire Office and exchange them for new water-efficient showerheads.”

The initiative will be available to customers until 30 September 2015 and follows other successful programs in Laverton, Leonora, Merredin, York, Beverley, Southern Cross, Westonia, Bruce Rock, Bencubbin, Beacon, Trayning, Corrigin, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Northam, Cunderdin, Toodyay and Wyalkatchem. The Free Showerhead Swaps are also currently underway in Nungarin, Dowerin, Goomalling, Coolgardie and Kambalda.

“To date these programs have exchanged a total of 1,060 showerheads, saving up to 7.4 million litres of precious drinking water each year,” Ms Davies said.

“I’m really pleased to see these two Shires working with the State Government to deliver long-term water savings for residents.

“There are 200 free showerheads available through the program, so I encourage customers to take part as soon as they can.”
