Project Description


Ensure your property meets water efficiency requirements to avoid tenancy disputes

What is a Water Efficiency Certificate?

A Water Efficiency Compliance Certificate is issued after a property audit has been done by a licensed plumber and meets the specific criteria of the RTA (Residential Tenancies Authorities) to ensure the property is water efficient.

The cost of the audit and certificate is $99. If, after inspection, the property is deemed non-compliant, a quote will be supplied on the spot and if accepted, most times work can begin immediately.

To ensure that there is no dispute between tenant and landlord, Refined Plumbing makes it standard practise to ensure there are no leaks and the hot water valves are within their service dates.

Refined Plumbing provides Water Efficiency Audits throughout their service area of the Sunshine Coast, from Caloundra to Coolum and out to the hinterland. Contact us today to book in your audit.
