WELS is Australia's water efficiency labelling scheme. It allows consumers to compare the water efficiency of different products. By choosing to use more water-efficient products in the home, Australians will save water and reduce their water and energy bills.
Water shortages and the longer-term security of water supply are serious concerns for Australia. The WELS Scheme labels a range of products for water efficiency, helping Australian households to save water and money.
Many factors come into play when you start thinking about buying a product - cost, style, performance, reputation. Saving water and saving on your water bills can be a deciding factor in determining the type of product you buy. Typical taps discharge 15 to 18 litres per minute, but the 2 in 1 Kitchen Mixer Tap only discharges 9 litres per minute. This saves you almost half the average water consumption rate of regular taps.
