Exchange your old showerheads for 3-star water-saving ones - for FREE!
- Use water efficiently
- Enjoy a great shower
- Reduce your energy use and environmental impact.
Installing water efficient showerheads is one of the easiest ways to save water and reduce your water and energy bills.
Old style showerheads can use up to 20 litres, or two buckets of water, per minute, compared to 3-star water-efficient models, which use around nine litres per minute. That's a saving of up to 13,500 litres of water a year, plus associated energy savings by using less hot water.
You can get a new showerhead for each shower in your home for FREE! All you need to do is swap your old showerheads and we'll give you brand new 3-star showerheads. You can do this by:
- registering for our showerhead + free installation service – we come to your home and install for you
- visiting one of our showerhead exchange locations (download list from the right) – you swap your own showerheads and install them.
We have added new showerhead exchange services at selected Australia Post and Bunnings Warehouse stores. There are now 51 locations in 37 suburbs where you can swap over your old showerheads for new efficient ones.
- showerheads come in two colours - chrome or white. A handheld model is also available where a handheld model is being replaced
- you can exchange more than one
- 3-star showerheads are not compatible with gravity fed or some older instantaneous hot water systems.
Owners of gravity fed hot water systems are advised not to change over their showerheads as part of this program, as these systems generally operate at a low flow.
Gravity fed hot water systems already have a vert low water pressure due to only being assisted by gravity and as such, the flow rate is normallyl around 10 litres per minute, making them quite efficient.
Some old instantaneous hot water systems may also be incompatible with a low flow or water-efficient showerhead. Please check with a plumber before exchanging your showerhead.
The old showerheads are collected and recycled as scrap metal. The proceeds from the scrap metal are donated to a local charity or council environmental programs, depending on who is running the exchange.
You will not be able to get your original showerhead back once you have handed it in.
A 3-star water efficient showerhead can reduce energy and water bills by cutting up to 13,500 litres of water per person, per year, for the life of the showerhead.
The Flexispray Bermuda II Hi Rise is available in chrome and white.
You will receive a new 3-star Flexispary Bermuda II Hi Rise showerhead. This showerhead normally costs around $30, however it is provided free of charge when you exchange your old one. The Flexispray Bermuda II HiRise was rated second for overall 'satisfaction' in a CHOICE magazine trial of water efficient showerheads.
When you hand in your old showerhead you will receive a new, 3-star water-efficient showerhead and arm, a flange and plumbers tape. The pack you will receive contains everything that you need to install the new showerhead.
If you're renting you require your landlord's permission (verbal or other) before exchanging your showerhead. We do not require any documentation to confirm this, however it should be noted that it is your responsibility to obtain approval from your landlord.
