Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS)

​​​​​The Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme is Australia's urban water saving scheme. WELS reduces demand for high quality drinkable water by informing consumers about water efficiency at the point of sale.

Estimates show that using water efficient products could save Australians more than $2 billion by 2030. That’s an average saving of $175 per household each year.

  • 65% of these savings are from reduced electricity and gas costs from avoided water heating.
  • 35% of these savings are from reduced water bills.
