The Waterwise Products Program is unique to WA and provides an opportunity for approved products to feature the waterwise logo on their packaging.

Smart Approved WaterMark is an international water efficiency scheme that certifies water saving products and services.

This program focuses on products that can help achieve water saving inside and outside of the home including any water saving products in one of the following Smart Approved WaterMark categories:

  • Watering – drip irrigation, other controllers, weather controllers, sprinkler systems, soil moisture monitors, rain sensors, watering measures
  • Gardening – mulches, smart pots, soil enhancers, wetting agents
  • Pool and spa covers
  • Greywater systems
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Plumbing products

Approved participants are provided with an electronic version of the Waterwise Approved logo to use on product packaging*. Manufacturers will be required to apply the logo onto packaging and marketing materials at their own cost. Approved products will be listed on the joint  Waterwise Products and Smart Approved WaterMark website.

Product categories

To find out which category your product or service fits in to visit the Smart Approved WaterMark website.

In order to be eligible for endorsement, your products must be appropriate/relevant to Western Australian conditions (as verified by WA Industry) and available to the general public. Greywater systems must also be approved by the WA Department of Health.

Please note that the above criteria does not apply to waterwise plants. Production nurseries wishing to use the Waterwise logo on plant labels are encouraged to contact us for details on the endorsement process specific to waterwise plants.

Apply for product endorsement

Consumer research conducted by us has revealed that more than 80% of consumers would be more inclined to purchase a product or service if it was easily identifiable as being waterwise and endorsed by a credible source such as Water Corporation.

Approved products are able to use the Waterwise Approved logo giving consumers increased confidence when purchasing waterwise products.
The waterwise label on your product may provide a number of benefits including:

  • A marketing advantage
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • If approved, your product will join a suite of highly recognised and regarded programs in providing expert advice, products and services
  • Approved products will be considered for Water Corporation rebates or subsidy programs
  • We will provide additional marketing, public relations, event and advertising support along with cross promotional activities

All products with Smart WaterMark certification are required to renew certification every 2 years. As long as your product continues to meet the requirements of the Smart WaterMark renewal process and abide by the Waterwise Products terms and conditions, you are authorised to use the Waterwise logo.

In the event that Smart WaterMark certification is withdrawn for any reason or it is demonstrated that the product is not meeting the terms and conditions of the Waterwise Products Program, we may withdraw the waterwise endorsement and right to use the Waterwise logo.

Smart Approved WaterMark is Australia’s water conservation label, identifying and promoting products and services that help to save water. Smart WaterMark has developed detailed guidelines and a robust assessment process whereby products are assessed by an independent Technical Expert Panel.

This process assesses products on their water saving and fit for purpose capability as well as meeting regulations and standards and being environmentally sustainable. Rather than duplicate this existing process the Waterwise Products Program works in partnership with Smart WaterMark to endorse those products that have already met the requirements of this process.

Yes, we strongly encourage you to feature both labels. The waterwise logo is unique to WA and endorses waterwise products and services. Due to the severity of the water situation in WA compared with other states, this program enables us to deliver a strong campaign that promotes the need to purchase waterwise products and services to help West Australians reduce their water use.
