If you have a suspected leak it makes sense to find and fix it so you stop wasting your water and potentially reduce your water bill. 

By utilising our rebate, you can have one of our registered plumber’s help you find your leak and calculate how much water is being wasted.

What is included in the $200 Leak Find and Fix rebate?

  • Attendance (call out fee) by one of our registered plumbers at your home for 30 minutes to validate the presence of a leak, and the volume of water leaking.
  • Leak detection services to find the location of your leak (e.g. In the irrigation, toilet, or an underground pipe etc.).
  • If it is a quick and easy fix the plumber will do so there and then.
  • If the leak will cost more than the $200 rebate value to fix, the plumber will provide you a quote before commencing work.

To use our $200 rebate contact one of our registered plumbers.
