Can my product carry both the Waterwise logo and the Smart WaterMark label?
Yes, we would strongly encourage you to feature both labels. The Waterwise logo is unique to WA and endorses waterwise products and services.
How can I reduce water use in my office?
There are many ways you and your colleagues can save water in the office. Simple actions such as encouraging all colleagues to turn off taps, and introducing a maintenance scheme to fix leaking taps can all add up to big water and cost savings in the workplace.
How long does the Waterwise endorsement last for?
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 terms and conditions you are authorised to use the Waterwise logo.
How do I know which products are water efficient?
Look for products that have a Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) rating of 3 stars or above. The WELS rating scheme is a Government initative which helps customers choose more water efficient products, to maximise water saving.
