HIGH BILL?

TIP: Here are some common reasons why your bill might be higher than normal.


Before you contact us, here are some checks we need you to make:


Check the meter reading on your bill is correct

You can do this by reading your water meter and comparing the reading with what is on your account.

Learn how to read your meter


Check if you have a water leak

Reading your water meter is the important first step that we take to calculate and issue your bill.

Buyers and sellers please note:

Unlike other utilities such as gas and electricity, we don’t disconnect and reconnect water and sewerage services when people move in and out of a property. Our services stay connected and simply transfer from the seller to the buyer when the property changes hands.

This means buyers and sellers don’t need to contact us to have their water and sewerage services disconnected or reconnected. They do need to do a few simple things to make the property settlement process as smooth as possible.



Please direct any questions about the settlement payment to your conveyancing solicitor as they calculate the fees and charges payable up to settlement date. 

Tip: Find out more about what you need to do when buying and selling.

Tenants and landlords please note:

If you are moving in or out of a rental property, you don't need to let us know as we do not do a final read of a water meter. This is because we don't disconnect and reconnect water and sewerage services when people move in and out of a property. The water and sewerage account for the property is always in the owner's name.



Please direct any questions to your real estate or landlord.

Tip: Find out more about what landlords and tenants need to do.
