Shower Head Exchange Day!

Melbourne is giving you the opportunity to save water and money. You can take in your old shower head for a water-saving one. All you have to bring is a water bill and your old shower head. They say you’ll save up to 20,000 liters of water per year and about $30 bucks off your water bill. Plus there’ll be additional savings on your gas/electric bill for heating all that water you’ve been pouring down the drain.

Couple of caveats:

  • You have to bring your shower head and it won’t be returned
  • The shower heads might not be compatible with all systems (especially old ones)
  • If you’re a tenant you have to have a letter of approval from your landlord

The exchange is:

Saturday 28 April 2007
10.00am – 2.00pm

East Melbourne Library
122 George St, East Melbourne (Melways Ref: 2G D4)

You can check out this website or ring 9658 9658 for more info.

It’s good for the environment and you save money! Win, win, win, win, win, win….

    I participated in this out at Upwey last month. Got 2 free shower heads, which I priced at Mitre 10 the next day and saw that they go for $50 each !
    Well worth going along and replacing the old water guzzlers.. Give you a good shower too

    Those bastards are going to take my German built Grohe shower head and replace it with some inferior one ?

    No way Jose.

    This whole water saving culture is insane. Build more dams and privatise the industry.

    Are the shower heads they give you any good? Do they have adequate pressure?

    I’m going to presume that Jono’s being sarcastic.

    Neil, I used one in Sydney and it had good water pressure. But I think that might come more from the water pressure you have than the heads themselves. Meaning, I don’t know what my friend’s water pressure was like before – so if you have really low pressure it might not be for you. Then again, if you have really low pressure, you’re less of a problem overall.
