Plumbers and community urged to Seek a Leak With 50 per cent of residential household water being used inside the home, the plumbing industry plays a vital role in promoting water efficiency.
he Water Corporation has launched a new campaign to motivate homeowners, schools and businesses to have leaky fixtures repaired. Seek a Leak prompts people to turn off all taps and water-using devices, and gives them instructions on how to read their water meter to help identify any leaks. The online tool created for the campaign allows anyone to enter the red numbers at the top of their water meter and helps them to find a licensed Waterwise Plumber to fix the leak. The campaign promotion features an eye-catching image of a Water Corp employees playing with Kep, Australiaâ€™s first leak detection dog. Campaign posters, which are available online for members of the public to print and are also being distributed in the community, advertise that Kep can find underground leaks and call on the public to try and find leaks too. For more than 10 years, Water Corporation and the Master Plumbers and Gasfitters Association of WA have been successfully running the Waterwise Plumber Program. The program equips plumbers with water efficiency advice and knowledge for installing and retro-fitting waterefficient products to help WA become a more waterefficient state. Advantages to MPGA members of becoming a registered Waterwise Plumber include promotion by the Water Corporation and being selected as a preferred supplier for various Water Corporation programs and projects. To participate in the program, please contact waterwise. email@example.com or call (08) 9420 3152.
