How to use recycled water

If you’re a resident with access to recycled water, as a condition of connection you will have recycled water connected to your toilet cistern and a recycled water tap (purple tap) in your front and backyard.

Use your recycled water for:

  • Flushing toilets
  • Watering plants and vegetables in your garden
  • Watering the lawn
  • Washing cars (on the lawn only)
  • Cleaning the outside of your home and outdoor furniture
  • Fighting fires

Don’t use your recycled water for:

  • Drinking
  • Cooking with or for other kitchen uses
  • Showering or bathing
  • Filling your swimming pools or spas
  • Evaporative cooling systems
  • Filling children’s water toys
