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

Showerhead Swap is a State Government program that allows Water Corporation customers 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 the Yarloop Community Resource Centre on Strickland Street and exchange them for new water-efficient showerheads.”

The initiative will be available to customers until 3 July 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 under way in Nungarin, Dowerin, Goomalling, Coolgardie, Kambalda, Quairading and Tammin.

“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 am really pleased to see the Yarloop CRC working with the Water Corporation to deliver long-term water savings for local residents.”

The Yarloop CRC is open Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm and Saturdays 8am to 1.30pm.
