Inefficient toilet cisterns and taps increase water use significantly which will most likely cause you to have an excess water bill. Even small undetected water leaks on toilet cisterns may be using up more water than you would otherwise use.
As a home owner, you can call us in to complete a thorough check on your household water systems. Simple things like new fixtures and fittings or a dual flush toilet cisterns can make a significant difference to how much you pay for water over a long-term period like a year.
Installing a dual flush toilet can save over 64% of water every flush while water efficient showers can save up to 11 litres of water every minute. Installing water efficient taps or fittings to water service pipe work will reduce the amount of water wasted even further.
Rental property managers and rental property Owners
In order to legally charge a tenant for water usage on the Gold Coast, in Logan and Brisbane the rental property must have an official water efficiency certification issued by an accredited licenced plumber. It also needs to be stipulated in the tenancy agreement that the tenant is responsible for paying for the property’s water usage. If your property has its own individual water meter, we can carry out an inspection and water audit to check that the property meets all the requirements needed to be certified as water efficient. Where necessary we can install flow restrictors or replace taps, shower heads and toilet cisterns that are found to be inefficient and non-compliant.
