Almost 170 Maitland residents have helped save 23 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water through Hunter Water’s Showerhead Exchange program.

During the past year Hunter Water customers have exchanged more than 3000 water-guzzling showerheads for new luxurious water efficient models, saving 59 million litres of water.

This year, more than 2000 individual households participated in the showerhead exchange program, sustainability initiative run jointly by Hunter Water and Lower Hunter councils.

This included Maitland households swapping 168 showerheads.

Hunter Water sustainability manager Angus Seberry said customers who exchange their showerheads would not only save money on their water bills, but also a significant amount in energy.

“A typical household spends 37 per cent of its energy on hot water and showers are also the biggest water use in the home, so swapping to an efficient showerhead is a great way to save money and improve energy efficiency,” Mr Seberry said.

“People tend to have longer and hotter showers during the winter months, so our customers who swapped their showerheads may notice a difference between this year and last year’s winter bills.”
