Waterless toilets

Water-efficient toilets and wastewater recycling systems have a lower environmental impact than conventional toilets, and well-designed toilets that don't use water for flushing can be even better. With no smell, conservation of precious water resources and reduction in effluent, they can also save money on your water bill. Your Home provide more comprehensive information.

Some toilets may require planning permission, so check with Council when considering water-efficient or water-less toilets.

Minimise water use

When fitting out your house, reduce water use by choosing water efficient showers, toilets, taps and appliances. Look for Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) labels on showers, dishwashers, washing machines, toilets and urinals, and taps.

When designing your garden, choose local native plants and plan low water use areas. Minimise paving or concrete which increases heat radiation and water runoff. Avoid the use of mains water for landscape irrigation and re-use water (eg. greywater).
