Replacing the taps in your kitchen and bathrooms with water-efficient models is an easy way to live more sustainably and help lower your bills.
Most modern taps can lower your water usage by up to 50% without any noticeable pressure loss. This means less energy is spent to heat it, less CO2 gets emitted into the air, and less water is wasted.
Fixtures and appliances sold in Australia are required to show the product’s rate of water consumption and are given a star rating for easy comparison.
If you’re renting, inform your landlord of any leaking or dripping taps so they can be fixed. If a replacement is needed, request a water efficient tap.
