As a strata manager or committee member, you can help minimise levies and water bills in your strata building. Contact the WaterFix Strata team to find out how, and get a free desktop assessment.
Our free desktop assessment is the first step to determining if your strata's water usage is low, average or too high. We use your apartment and bedroom count plus historical water usage to compare your strata to best practice industry benchmarks. You'll immediately see if your strata is likely to find effective ways to save water.
If the desktop assessment indicates your strata's water use is too high, we'll set up an inspection of 10% of apartments plus common areas to identify issues. Then we'll provide an obligation-free WaterFix Strata quote covering the work that needs to be done.
A WaterFix Strata quote covers costs for our fully licensed and experienced plumbers and specialist tradespeople. It also includes products and materials, repairs or installing new items, removing and disposing of existing items, project management, and coordinating appointments with unit owners and tenants.

If water savings are substantial, your strata may be eligible to pay through a performance payment plan. This plan covers costs by the value of water your site saves. You won't need to budget for out-of-pocket payments.
Century Towers is a 52-storey residential building with 292 apartments in the Sydney CBD. Our free assessment identified extremely high water use. After the WaterFix Strata service, Century Towers found it saved 28 million litres per year – enough to fill more than 11 Olympic-size swimming pools.
Savings for strata management and residents added up to $17,000 a quarter.
From the initial inspection, WaterFix Strata identified many leaks and inefficient old fixtures. Our plumbers scheduled appointments with residents, and from start to finish the service took just over 2 weeks:
Century Towers accepted our performance agreement option. As a result, there were no up-front costs. There was no need to increase levies, and savings were redirected to other projects. As a bonus, all residents enjoy energy savings because they use less hot water.
