Here is some further information in regards to Water Charging from the RTA Residential Tenancies Authority.

Lessors (landlords) are allowed to pass on the full water consumption charges (including bulk water charges) to tenants provided all the minimum criteria have been met.

 

Water Efficiency Assessments & Installation of Water Saving Devices

Recent changes to the Residential Tenancies Act 1994, from 01/04/08 new laws allow lessors (landlords) to pass on the full water consumption costs to tenants provided all the minimum requirements have been met. Part of the minimum criteria for water charging is that the rental premises is water efficient1.

Absolute Plumbing Qld is licensed to conduct WATER EFFICIENCY ASSESSMENTS for rental properties.

Book a Water Efficiency Assessment 

1‘Water efficient’ rental properties are where internal cold water taps (<9L/min) and single mixer taps (<9L/min) (excluding bath tub taps and taps for appliances), showerheads (<9L/min) and toilets (Dual flush, 6/3L) meet the performance standards for a 3 star WELS rating or higher. These water efficiency levels may be achieved through installing 3 star WELS rated products or through the use of ‘add-on’ devices, such as aerators or flow restrictors.
