Recycled water connections in laundry
All new houses built in recycled water supply areas will have recycled water access in the laundry.
A third purple tap will now be installed alongside the hot and cold washing machine taps.
The new recycled water laundry connection is part of a long term investigation into clothes washing with recycled water. Our investigations have concluded that there is no difference between recycled water and drinking water for washing clothes or any impacts on the washing machine appliance.
Existing recycled water customers whose houses do not currently have a laundry connection can have one retrofitted in their laundry. They will need to submit a plumbing application form to City West Water prior to commencing any recycled water plumbing work.
