Do I have to pay for water?

You are required to pay for the water consumption charges if:

  • the rental premises are individually metered (or water is delivered by vehicle)
  • the rental premises are water efficient; and
  • the tenancy agreement states the you must pay for water consumption.

What is a water efficient property?

A Water efficient premise is one that is fitted with Water efficient devices, such as:

  • Shower Heads with a maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute;
  • Toilets that are equipped with a dual flush not exceeding 6.5 litres (full flush) and 3.5 litres (half flush) and a maximum average flush volume of 4 litres (based on an average of 4 half flushes for every 1 full flush); and
  • Internal cold water taps and single mixer taps (excluding those for bathtubs and appliances) that have a maximum flow rate of 9 litres per minute.

My oven is not working?

There are two possible things than can cause your oven to stop working. The first is a fault in
the electrical system and the second is a problem with the oven itself. The below steps will
determine the type of tradesperson needed. In some cases may fix your problem if it was
caused by something temporary.

Check if any of the (RCD) switches on the fuse box have tripped. The fuse box can normally
be found in the following places:

  • Townhouses: in your garage or an internal cupboard
  • Houses: near your electricity meter on the side of your house
  • Units: generally in an internal cupboard

It looks like this, but switch colours may vary and there is normally a cover over the box. The
Switches often have names above or below them indicating what they’re connected to.

Check all the fuses are in the “On” position. If the oven switch is “Off” push it back to the
“On” position.

Turn your oven on. If the switch in the fuse box trips again, there is an issue is electrical and
we’ll need an electrician.
If the switch stays on, but the oven doesn’t work, it’s likely a problem with the oven (not the
electricals) and we’ll need to send out an appliance repair man.
If the problem isn’t resolved after doing this please call the office (or emergency number
after hours) and we’ll be able to assist you more.

I have no hot water.

Check if the Hot Water (RCD) switch on the fuse box has tripped to the “Off” position. The
fuse box can normally be found in the following places:

  • Houses: near your electricity meter on the side of your house
  • Townhouses: in your garage or an internal cupboard
  • Units: generally in an internal cupboard

It looks like this. Switch colours may vary and there is normally a cover over the box. The
Switches often have names above or below them indicating what they’re connected to.

If the switch for the Hot Water is “Off”, put it back in the “On” position.
If it stays on, you’ll need to allow some time for your hot water heater to heat up the water
in the tank, If it’s stuck in the off position or keeps turning back off when you turn it on, we’ll need to
arrange an electrician to assess the situation.

Please call the office (or emergency number after hours) and we’ll be able to help.
