We aim to provide 20 litres of water per minute. If you believe you are receiving less than this or you have noticed your water pressure has changed here are a few things you can do.

Check for outages

First, visit our outages and works page to check if there are any known water issues or works in your area as this could potentially affect your water pressure.

Conduct a water pressure test

You can also complete the following simple test to see how many litres you are receiving through your service – however please be aware that this may not be completely accurate, as often it depends on where your water services are located on your property.

We recommend you complete the following test to determine how many litres you are receiving through your service:

Step 1

Make sure all taps and water using appliances are turned off.

Step 2

Write down the black and red numbers on your meter.

Step 3

Turn on your front garden tap for 60 seconds. Be sure to collect this water and use it on your garden or pot plants.

Step 4

Take another meter reading and subtract it from the first meter reading. This will tell you how much water came out within the 60 second period.

Step 5

If you are receiving MORE than 20 litres per minute from your garden tap there may be an issue with your internal pipe work. If this is the case, you will need to call a waterwise plumber or a licensed plumber.

If you are receiving LESS than 20 litres per minute from your garden tap, call us on 13 13 75 so we can look into it further.
