Sydney Water’s WaterFix® offers a range of services which include:
- tap and toilet leak repairs
- installation of water efficient showerheads and other water-efficient fittings
- installation of 4-star, dual flush toilets.
This service is normally the responsibility of residents, since internal bathrooms and kitchens are not common property. However when apartments do not have separate water meters and the owners corporation pays for every drop of water consumed in the scheme, it makes a lot of sense for owners corporations to pay for this service in all apartments.
The service has now been carefully adapted to suit apartment buildings. In addition to its primary focus on leak repairs, showers, taps and toilets, it now includes:
- an efficient and accurate quotation process
- turn-key project management
- financing options
This is a simple yet significant initiative that will not only reduce water consumption in your building, but also give you recurring expense savings in your administrative fund every year – money which can be re-allocated to your capital works fund to offset the cost of more expensive sustainability projects.
