Rebate for showerheads and tapware

Install a water efficient showerhead or tapware and save money

Council offers a one-off rebate of up to $100 by installing a 3 star WELS rated showerhead or 4 star WELS rated tapware.

The rebate is available for owner-occupiers, landlords and tenants (with landlord's permission).

The property must be an existing residential property connected to the town water supply and the water-saving device/s must be approved under the Australian Government's water rating scheme.

How to apply for the rebate

Step 1: Find out if you qualify for a rebate:
  • Will the device/s be installed in an existing property?
  • Is the property in the Tweed and connected to the town water supply?
  • Is this your first shower and/or tapware rebate from Council?

If you answered ‘yes’ to all of these, then you are eligible to apply for the rebate.

Step 2: Purchase the approved devices

The rebate is only available for certain WELS-rated devices. Make sure you keep all receipts. Your application should clearly show the make and model number of the products so that the WELS rating can be verified.

Step 3: Have a licensed plumber install the device/s (keep all receipts and invoices)
