Water Efficiency Certificate Compliance Testing & Certification

Water Efficiency Certificate testing and certification is a must for any landlord or real estate property manager so that you can charge your tenant for the full cost of all water consumed.

That is why Whywait Plumbing have been issuing rental property owners with a Water Efficiency Certificate for the last thirteen years. We were one of the few Gold Coast Plumbers who were accredited as an Water Efficiency Assessor by the Queensland Water Commission in 2007.

What Are The Minimum Requirements For Charging Tenants For Water?

Landlords and rental property owners can only charge tenants for water consumed providing:

  • the rental property has an individual water meter
  • the rental property has been certified as water efficient and had a Water Efficiency Certificate issued
  • the signed tenancy agreement specifically states that the tenant must pay for all water consumed
