Water efficiency standards
If you manage or own a rental property, it is required to install water efficiency devices. We can install these and supply you with a certificate of compliance.
A rental property is considered water efficient if it meets these standards.
Water efficient devices
Minimum water efficiency standard required
|Internal cold water taps and single mixer taps for kitchen sinks and bathroom hand basins||A maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute|
|Shower heads||A maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute|
|No leaking taps||No leaking taps anywhere on the premises at the start of the tenancy or when the other water efficiency measures are installed|
The requirement for sink and basin taps to have a maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute does not apply to other taps in the premises, such as bathtub taps, laundry taps, outside taps for the garden, or taps which supply washing machines and dishwashers.
