Home Living : November 4th 2008
10 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 4, 2008 Retro revolution A WaterFix service can save about 21,000 litres of water every year HOMELIVING RESIDENTS in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra have taken Sydney's water use back to 1970s levels. More than 510,000 households in greater Sydney have retrofitted their showers and taps with water-saving devices through the WaterFix program or with a do-it-yourself water-saving kit since 2000, saving more than 10 billion litres of water a year. Thanks to a combination of measures, including retrofits and water restrictions, Sydney is now using the same amount of water as it did in the early '70s, even though the population has increased by more than a million people. A basic WaterFix service costs $22 and involves a licensed plumber visiting the home to install a water-efficient showerhead and tap aerators, fix minor leaks and convert appropriate single- flush toilets. This can save the average household about 21,000 litres of water a year and up to $66 a year on bills. DIY kits contain flow regulators for taps and showers that reduce the flow of water without affecting the pressure, which means less water is wasted. The kits have easy-to-follow instructions and, once installed, can reduce the average households water and energy bills by around $50 a year. To join the retro revolution, call 1800 995 886 to book a WaterFix service or visit www.sydneywater.com.au to register for a free DIY water-saving kit.
