Things to know before removing your showerhead
Water efficient showerheads are not always suitable for low pressure, gravity fed (in the roof) and some instantaneous or continuous supply hot water systems. Be sure to check your hot water system is compatible before removing your showerheads.
If you rent your property, the property owner or landlord must agree to the replacement of the showerheads.
For assistance in removing and installing showerheads, we recommend you contact a licensed plumber. Search our database of Waterwise Plumbers to find someone in your area.
