Water Consumption | Miramar Apartments
A water efficiency audit by Sydney Water identified the greatest potential for water savings was in the individual apartments.
A number of apartments had major water leaks and most tap fittings and showerheads were inefficient.
Sydney Water’s WaterFix service was undertaken in all apartments. Once complete the savings achieved were:
- 58kL/day, a 21% drop in historic water use
- $49,000 a year on cold water savings
- 27 kL/day in hot water, with related electricity and gas savings
- $15,000 a year on energy savings on water efficiency alone
- 36 tonnes of CO2 a year in energy savings from reduced hot water use
- Cost: approx $7,000
- Payback period: less than 2 months
