Water Consumption

Future-proof your home and lower your bills by replacing your taps, showerheads and appliances with water-efficient models.

Water is a precious resource and Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth, yet per capita, we’re one of the highest consumers of water. Most modern fixtures and appliances can lower your water usage by up to 50% without any noticeable pressure loss. This means less energy is spent to heat the water, less CO2 is 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. You can visit the Australian Government’s Water Rating site to compare ratings. If you’re renting or want to lower your water usage without replacing appliances or fittings, you can take shorter showers and limit your baths as this may make a significant difference too.
