Obtaining a water efficiency certificate in NSW is a must if you, as a landlord, want to charge your tenant for water usage. However, this isn’t something that you can do the “DIY” way, as the certificate can only be issued by a licensed plumber in Sydney. And at Service First Plumbing, we’ve got a team dedicated to this task!

According to state regulations, the plumbing in your to-be-rented property should meet certain criteria to qualify as water-efficient. Unlike regular plumbing checks that are relatively easy to be done by you, checking for water efficiency is pretty exhaustive and involves a lot of technicalities. You should only trust the best plumbers at Service First Plumbing. Get in touch with us to book your appointment today!

What Are The Criteria That Your Property Should Meet?

Firstly, all internal cold taps, except those used for bathing, should have a maximum flow rate of 9 litres of water/minute. Although this specification is also applicable to all showerheads, it doesn’t apply to:

  • Laundry taps
  • External taps for gardening
  • Bathtub taps
  • Dishwasher taps

Aside from that, there should be no leaking taps anywhere during the start of the tenancy or during any upgrades, repairs or installation for water efficiency measures. However, the property should meet two other criteria (except the water efficiency certificate) for the landlord to charge tenants for water usage. These are:

  • An individual watering system or access to bulk water delivery
  • The “on-property” water charge shouldn’t be more than what the water supplier charges

How Can We Help You Obtain The Certificate?

We will send our Sydney plumbers to your property once you make an appointment, and they will check the plumbing thoroughly to determine if it meets the specifications above. If any fixture fails to perform as it should, they will take all the necessary steps to fix or replace it. Likewise, flow-restricting aerators and fittings may need to be installed behind spouts and taps, so water is used efficiently.

You will receive a quote and plan of action before the plumbers begin work, and they will only proceed if you approve.
