As supporters of Waterwise plumbing, we were excited to hear that 1000 WA public housing properties have been made more water efficient through a Government partnership that is helping to save water and reduce tenants' bills.
The WA Government's Waterwise Housing Project, a partnership between Water Corporation and the Department of Communities, aims to give 10,000 home a Waterwise upgrade.
The updgrade includes replacing fixtures such as shower heads as well as checking for water leaks inside and outside the home. A single leaking tap can waste up to 10,000 litres of water per year, while a constant trickle in a toilet bowl can waste 9,000 litres per year.
