Water efficiency targets

Ever wondered how much water you should be using? We have targets that show if you're using water efficiently in your home.

Just follow these easy steps

  1. Get your latest bill - check the months your usage charge is for and Your average daily usage for this bill
  2. Work out how many people lived with you - just for the months your usage charge is for.
  3. Check the months below - choose the one that matches your usage charge. It may not match exactly.
  4. Find your property size - check what we recommend for a water efficient home.
