Water efficiency reports from M.J.Walker Plumbing

   The truth of the matter is that Water is a utility just as Electricity, Gas and Telephone are. Water is also increasing in price and further increases are planned. Why not take advantage of the new rental laws and pass on a percentage, if not all, of the cost of water for your rental property. Talk to your property manager to see just how much you can pass on. Most homes built in the last 5 years are already efficient.  
  The first thing you will need before you can have tenants pay for water is a Water Efficiency Report. This report outlines the flow rates of tap ware and flush volumes of toilets. Many types of older tap ware can also be retrofitted to be efficient. To meet efficiency all tap ware (except bath and laundry) need to have a flow rate of 9 litres per min or less. Toilets need to be dual flush with 6/3 litre flushes or better. Homes with a pool need to have a rainwater tank  or downpipe diverter, for use in topping up the pool level.
