Use water-efficient appliances in your business

Use water-efficient appliances in your business

You can save water and money just by choosing water-wise appliances.

To help you choose the most water efficient appliances, Australia has mandatory Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS). Labels apply to all showerheads, washing machines, toilets, dishwashers, and urinals. It also applies to some types of taps.

The scheme includes minimum water efficiency standards for toilets. Labels on flow-control devices are optional.

WELS Label 

This scheme tells you how water efficient a product is. The more stars on the label, the more water-efficient the product. Choosing to buy only high efficiency products will help you save water.

You can read more about the WELS scheme here.

  • Some Adelaide Hills customers may notice changes in the taste and/or smell of their tap water, as we work hard to reduce the impact of an algal bloom in the Summit Reservoir.
    The algal bloom is causing a naturally occurring compound called geosmin, which can affect water taste and odour, but is harmless to health. The water remains safe to drink.
    We expect customers in the following areas may notice this change: Mount Barker, Balhannah, Oakbank, Verdun, Hahndorf, Heathfield, Stirling, Crafers, Lenswood, Lobethal, Woodside, Brukunga, Mount Torrens, Birdwood, Gumeracha, Kersbrook, Cudlee Creek, Wistow, Nairne, Littlehampton, Strathalbyn, Clayton, Milang, Langhorne Creek and Bridgewater.
    We have made changes to our treatment processes at the Summit Water Treatment Plant to reduce the level of geosmin in the water.   
    Our testing shows no algae has been detected in the network and it has been completely removed as part of our normal treatment process.
    If our customers have any questions or concerns, please contact us on 1300 SA WATER.
