Water Efficiency Test

Do you have a rental property?  We can provide a cost effective Water Efficiency Test and issue a Master Plumbers Water Efficiency Certificate to provide to your tenants and real estate agent.  

Why conduct a water efficiency test?  In the case of rentals you are able to charge for excess water usage where all fixtures in the dwelling have been tested for compliance against the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Regulation 2009.

The Regulation sets out that premises must be individually metered, toilets must be dual flush with a maximum of 3.5lt for half flush and 6.5lt for full flush, shower heads, internal cold water taps and single mixer taps installed over a hand basin, kitchen sink and laundry flow at 9lt/minute.  Where your tapware or fixture does not comply, we can install flow rate restrictors or replace the fixture with a WELS rated and compliant item.

The cost for our standard test is $165 incl GST, which provides for the test and where compliant, a certificate will be issued.  Where the property is not compliant, a quote will be submitted for rectification costs.
