Switching to a water efficient showerheads can save you up to 20,000 litres of water each year? We still have stock from the Waterwise Showerhead Swap Program.  And a 4-minute shower hourglass to remind you when it’s time to hop out! Waterwise even has a Spotify playlist with 4-minute songs. What a treat to conserve water while grooving to your favourite tunes?

Last year in Bridgetown we had 42 showerheads swapped which provide a combined annual water saving of 580,000 litres. Please refer to our earlier news article on how to Swap Your Shower Head.

Here’s a quick test to check your showerhead efficiency:

  • Place a 10 litre bucket under the showerhead and have the timer ready
  • Start the timer as you turn the cold tap on full for 30 seconds
  • Stop the timer and turn off the tap
  • If your bucket is around half full you have a water efficient showerhead. If it’s much more than half full you may have an old high flow showerhead.
  • Empty the bucket onto your garden!
