Water Tips

Fresh water is a precious resource.
There are many good reasons to save water. It’s good for the environment - and your hip pocket.
Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth - but per capita we are one of the world’s largest consumers of water. Taking into account all uses of fresh water - including irrigation of crops - we use more than 1 million litres of water per capita per year.
The water is mainly used for irrigation (about 75%), with urban and industrial use accounting for about 20%.
We all use water differently, but studies have shown the following water usage in an average suburban South Australian home:

(SA Water links)
Garden & Outdoor 40%
Bath & Shower 20%
Laundry 16%
Kitchen 11%
Toilet 11%
Other 2%

Knowing where you use the most water around the house helps you to understand where water savings can be made. You can use the Interactive House and Garden tool to estimate the amount of water you use in your home.

Who is responsible for your leak?

SA Water is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the water meter and any pipes or fittings that lead away from the water meter to the water main. If you have identified a water leak in the SA Water network, please phone the 24 hour Service Faults and Emergencies hotline 1300 883 121. They will then send a crew to attend the problem.

You are responsible for the installation, repair, maintenance and replacement of all the private water pipes and fittings that run from your property up to the water meter’s outlet riser.
