Did you know

A family of four could save up to $100 a year if they install a three-star water-efficient showerhead in the bathroom?

What's more, Council will pay them up to $100 (or a maximum 50 per cent) in a rebate on the cost to purchase and install approved water-saving devices, such as showerheads.

The rebate's available to owner-occupiers, landlords or tenants. But, of course, if you are a tenant you will need to get the landlord's permission to install the water-saving devices.

How to apply for the rebate and eligible products

Council uses the Australian Government’s Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Scheme (WELS) to determine which products are covered under the Residential Water Saving Rebate.

Residents can apply for a rebate on a combination of eligible devices but there is a limit on how many of each device.

Note: The rebate does not apply to flow restrictors as they can be removed too easily.

Terms and Conditions

The property where the water-saving devices are installed must be an existing residential property connected to the town water supply. The rebate does not cover installations in new dwellings, new developments or major renovations subject to the NSW Government’s BASIX requirements.

The following people can apply:

  • home-owners

  • tenants (the application form will need to be signed by the home owner or managing agent as the landlord's permission is required because installing products and devices as part of this offer involves changing internal plumbing fittings inside the home)

  • authorised managing agents.

Only one rebate application is allowed per household/residential dwelling/water account.

Eligible products must be installed by a licensed plumber to ensure they perform as expected.

Customers must agree to allow Tweed Shire Council to audit the premises to verify that the new water-saving products have been installed satisfactorily.

Customers must agree to refund the rebate if they remove, return or exchange any of the water-saving products within 12 months.
