complymyproperty is your one stop shop
The Tenancy laws and regulations that came into effect on 31 January 2011, require that a residential rental property must comply with the water efficiency guidelines at the commencement of a new lease before an owner can pass on the water usage charges to a tenant.
Our certified plumbers will inspect your rental properties and check to ensure that the internal cold water taps have the correct flow rate.
A property is only considered water efficient if it meets these standards:
- No leaking taps or toilets
- Shower heads have a maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute
- Internal cold water taps and single mixer taps for kitchen sinks or bathroom hand basins have a maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute
- Separately metered where the premises has more than 1 dwelling on the property
Note: The 9 litres per minute flow rate does not apply to other taps in the property, including bathtub taps, laundry taps, outside taps for the garden, or taps for washing machines and dishwashers.
