Saving water is great for the environment, but it can also help you reduce your water bills
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.
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.
