Water Compliance - WELS
What is WELS?
Wels is Australia’s water efficiency labelling scheme that requires certain products to be registered and labelled with their water efficiency in accordance with the standard set under the national Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Act 2005.
Choosing more efficient products helps Australia save water:
Over 1/3 of the water savings come from choosing water efficient showers, about 34% from the washing machines and 23% from the toilets & urinals.
By choosing to use more water-efficient products in the home, we will save water and reduce our water & energy bills.
Read more information on the WELS website.
Do you have a rental property?
Who pays for the water use?
If your rental home complies with the RTA’s (Rental Tenancy Agreement) recommendations for Water Charging, then you can pass the full water consumption cost onto the tenants.
If you live Brisbane Southside, including Beenleigh, Logan & North Gold Coast, Moyle Plumbing & Gasfitting can flow cup test all hot & cold taps, check for water leaks, inspect the hot water system, take a water meter reading & write a detailed report. If you home complies with the RTA recommendations, a water efficient certificate can be issued. If your home requires any water saving devises to be installed, we can contact you or your agent from site with a costing, or provide a free quote.
Water Saving Devices
After our recent drought, Australia Government has changed the way we treat our water resources. Because of the long-term effects of the drought, many state governments are attempting to "drought-proof" their states with more permanent solutions.
Water saving products and appliances
Water saving appliances and products can save you a lot of money and make a big difference to how much water we use.
For many of the products in your home, you will find out how efficient they are by their label. On this label you will see a star rating and a water consumption or water flow figure. The more stars, the more water efficient the product is. You can find this label on:
Water efficient products around your home
A 4-star WELS rated dual-flush toilet uses more than 60% less water than a standard single flush toilet.
A 3 star-rated showerhead can save thousands of litres of water per person each year. These use as little as 8 litres a minute, compared to standard showerheads which use around 20 litres a minute.
Water efficient taps, tap aerators or an in-tap flow regulator can save up to 50% of the water you use from the tap as well as providing softer water with less splashing.
A 5 star water efficient washing machine can save your household up to 24,000 litres of water a year.
A trigger nozzle on your hose in the garden ensures water only goes where it's needed and helps stop overwatering.
