What is a Water Compliance Certificate?
A water compliance certificate certifies that your property meets certain energy and water usage requirements as outlined by the RTA (Residential Tenancies Authority). It can only be supplied by a registered and licensed contractor plumber such as Gen 3 Trade Services and they are required by any landlord who wants to charge their tenants for water usage.
Once you have received a compliance certificate, it is valid and does not need to be renewed unless requested by your tenant because they no longer think that your property is fully compliant.
What is Included in a Water Compliance Inspection?
When Gen 3 Trade Services inspect your property for water usage compliance, we go above and beyond to check all of your taps, shower heads, appliances, toilets and any other water-using fixtures to make sure they are up to date. As a part of our water compliance certificate we do require the property to be free of leaks and the hot water valves to be within the expire date. This is just to ensure that there is no dispute between the land lord and tenant at a later date.
Some of the specific items that we check in order to receive your certificate include:
- None of your taps or showers use more than 9Lts per minute.
- Any water-using appliances such as dishwashers or washing machines have an efficiency rating of 3 stars.
- Any pools or spas have covers to reduce evaporation.
- Toilets usage are no greater than 6.5ltr for full flushes and 3.5ltr for half flushes.
- Check there is no leaks on the property including external taps
- Complete a hydrolic test to make sure there is no leaking within the property
- Hot water unit valves are up to day and is not releasing excess water from a faulty valve.
