That the primary purpose of the product or service is directly related to reducing actual water use and/or using water more efficiently, where there is a direct correlation between the use of the product and water savings.
2. Fit for purpose
That the appropriate use of the product or service is consistent with supplied instructions and other documentation.
3. Meets regulations and standards
That the product or service is of high quality and meets industry standards, and customer and community expectations, in relation to water use.
4. Environmentally sustainable
That the product or service, while satisfying the above three criteria, is environmentally sustainable, and despite claimed water savings will not adversely affect the environment in other areas.
Water saving claims need to be independently verified (such as independent testing, case studies or comparative reports). Unsubstantiated marketing claims are not regarded as evidence of water saving.
