Water-efficient appliances and fixtures can save you a lot of water and money in the long term. You can also make a big difference to Australia's overall use of clean tap water. By 2021 Australians could save more than $1 billion on our water and energy bills just by using more water-efficient appliances and fixtures.More than a third of these savings will come from using more water-efficient showerheads, another third from more efficient washing machines and over 20 per cent from water-efficient toilets.
