Schools Water Efficiency Program

Coupled with a water and energy audit from us, Schools Water Efficiency Program (SWEP) is a fantastic resource that can help you save water and money. SWEP provides dataloggers to Victorian schools which are used to track water usage, detect leaks, and promote water education in the school. Visit myswep to see how Victorian schools are using SWEP in the classroom and saving thousands of dollars with early leak detection.
