Rental properties are considered water efficient if certain water fixtures meet the standards listed below.
The requirement for taps applies only to internal cold water taps that are installed over a hand basin, kitchen sink or laundry trough (including single mixer taps). The requirement does not apply to other taps in the property such as bath tub taps, outside taps for the garden, or taps which supply washing machines or dishwashers. These taps are not required to be water efficient.
Property managers/owners should be able to demonstrate the presence of water efficient fittings with a water compliance certificate, plumbers report or receipts.
