Water Saving Tips

High Water Use Checklist for Households

There are a number of factors that may cause your water bill to increase. Slight changes within your household consumption or a concealed water leak can impact your bill.  The following checklist may help you narrow down what is causing the unusually high water bill.

  • Did you have any guests or extra laundry demands?
  • Have you had any new water appliance or fittings installed recently?
  • Do you see or hear water running or dripping from toilets, taps, pipes or hoses?
  • Have you made changes to your garden?
  • Is the timer working on your irrigation system?
  • If you have a swimming pool is the auto-fill system working properly?
  • Has your household been taking longer showers?
  • Have you had any recent leaks or plumbing work completed, that could have contributed to increased water use?
  • Are re-circulating pumps working on any ornamental water features?
  • Check your evaporative air conditioners are functioning correctly.

Water Saving Tips for Commercial Properties

  • Conduct monthly inspections of your business, focusing on piping joints, toilets, showers, taps, pump seals, hose nozzles, shut-off valves, cooling towers, etc.
  • Poorly maintained equipment can often be prone to leaks. Check any equipment that uses water on a regular basis and put in place preventative maintenance schedules to help avoid potential issues.
  • For underground or concealed pipe work, plumbing companies can be employed to use acoustic leak detection units and pressure testing to locate leaks. 

Water Leaks:

Repairing a Water Leak on your Property

If the water leak is in one of your pipes (the property owner's pipes), you should call a licensed plumber.  Please note that you will be charged for the water that your property uses while the leak remains unrepaired.
