Residents of regional Western Australia can now take advantage of free water-saving devices and offers. It forms part of Water Corporation‘s 2023-24 Waterwise Towns Program.

The annual program, now available in a record 47 communities Statewide, provides tailored offers to help regional Western Australians reduce water use and lower their bills.

Residents in each participating town can exchange two old, inefficient showerheads for water-saving devices free of charge under a showerhead swap offer.

Last year, hundreds of households across regional WA replaced showerheads to save millions of litres of water.

Since 2013, the Waterwise Towns Program has saved 1.8 billion litres of scheme water Statewide, helping support the long-term security of WA’s most valuable resource.

Showerhead Swap is available until 31 May 2024, while stocks last. For more information, visit

Water Minister Simone McGurk:

“This year marks a decade since the Waterwise Towns Program began, and in that time, we’ve helped save 1.8 billion litres of valuable drinking water across regional communities.

“Not only does the free offer help reduce water consumption – and bills – it also allows us to spread to the waterwise message, which is incredibly important given the impact of climate change on water sources.”

Albany MLA Rebecca Stephens:

“Plenty of free water-saving initiatives are available for Albany residents, so there’s no excuse not to save water.

“Whether it’s a showerhead swap, rainwater tank rebate or irrigation service, these offers will not only conserve water, they’ll help you save money too.”

Agricultural Region MLC Sandra Carr:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for locals to take advantage of free waterwise offers that will have a real impact – and help save money.

“The Showerhead Swap program is a simple, practical initiative that makes a real difference.”

Agricultural Region MLC Shelley Payne:

“I would urge residents to get on board and discover their water-saving opportunities.

“In our drying climate, it’s never been more important for all of us to play our part in protecting our water supply.”

“This program has a fantastic offer for Halls Creek residents to access free plumbing services, which will help identify leaks and upgrade fixtures.

“An example of water-saving measures include converting a single flush toilet to a dual flush. This could save up to 30,000 litres of water a year. Saving water means saving money, too!”
