Water usage in at this low-rise apartment block decreased substantially in less than 4 months following the WaterFix® and Toilet Replacement programs carried out in their complex.

This building received both the WaterFix® and Toilet Replacement services from Sydney Water in early May 2011. All previous toilets were single flush.
