Shower Head Swap

If you're in a town where a Shower Head Swap program is being offered, it's important you read the terms and conditions below.

We are currently offering free shower heads as part of water saving programs in various towns throughout the state. At the moment there is no Shower Head Swap program available to customers in the metropolitan area. To find out where we're currently offering the Shower Head Swap program, visit the regional water saving programs page.

Things to know before removing your shower head

  • Water efficient shower heads 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 shower heads. 

  • If you rent your property, the property owner or landlord must agree to the replacement of the shower heads.

  • For assistance in removing and installing shower heads, we recommend you contact a licensed plumber. Search our database of Waterwise Plumbers to find someone in your area.
