Water Labelling Scheme

Methven is committed to safeguarding the earth’s natural resources. Learn how to recognise our water efficient products.

Methven's commitment to safeguarding the earth's natural resources is reflected in all of our business and design practices. All of our NZ and Australian tapware and showerware meets current NZ and AUS regulations, (and often exceeds them).

NZ's Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme (WELS) is designed to help New Zealanders make informed choices about the water efficiency of products, and encourage water conservation. Since April 2013, labelling has been mandatory on all appliances and products that use water in the home, including: washing machines, dishwashers, toilets, urinals, showers and taps (excepting bath taps).

The WELS label displays three key pieces of information:

  1. The star rating out of 6. All products except showers are rated up to 6 stars. Currently showers can only achieve a maximum of 3 stars. If a product fails any test or has a higher flow than the maximum rating, it can still be sold, but must carry a 0 star label.
  2. The rated water consumption:

* Litres per minute (for showers and taps)

* Litres per wash (for washing machines and dishwashers)

* Litres per flush (for lavatories and urinals)

3. The pressure application (only applies to showers and tapware in NZ) – mains pressure and/or low/unequal pressure. Methven products suitable for all pressure installations carry 2 labels.

In addition to conserving water, making well-informed product choices can reduce energy bills and reduce water utility costs.
