To help you save water in the garden, we’re offering Perth and Peel customers a rebate for the purchase and set up of selected weather smart irrigation controller products, up to the value of $300.

Weather smart irrigation uses local weather data to adjust the watering times for your garden, ensuring it gets the water it needs without overwatering. Having one of these smart irrigation controllers in your garden means you can reduce your water use outdoors by around 15%, while still keeping plants healthy.

If you already have a standard irrigation controller, you may be able to convert to a weather based irrigation controller by simply connecting a weather smart component.

What's included in the waterwise offer

The Weather Smart Irrigation Rebate includes:

  • Up to $200 for the purchase of one eligible weather smart irrigation controller, a weather smart component for an existing irrigation controller, or a controller plus a weather smart irrigation component purchased from a Waterwise Irrigation Design Shop or a Waterwise Garden Irrigator.

AND

To be eligible for the rebate, you must purchase an eligible weather smart product and have the product set up at your property by a Waterwise Garden Irrigator.

This rebate is limited and only available for purchases made between 1 October 2021 – 31 May 2022 or until rebate allocations are reached.

How to apply

The rebate is available for Water Corporation customers only, who have not previously claimed a Weather Smart Irrigation rebate. To apply, you’ll need to provide:

  • Proof of purchase for the eligible product and the set-up (which may or may not be from different suppliers).
  • A copy of your Water Corporation bill for the property where the controller/component is installed.
  • A copy of the completed programming checklist (this will be provided to you by your Waterwise Garden Irrigator).

Apply for a weather smart irrigation rebate

The Weather Smart Irrigation Rebate (Rebate) is available to residential property owners in the Perth metropolitan area who are customers of the Water Corporation. A Rebate of up to $300 is available for the purchase, set up and programming of one eligible weather-based irrigation product. The Rebate is split between the purchase of the controller, and the cost of having the controller set-up at the customer’s home by a Waterwise Irrigator. The Rebate for the purchase of the controller is the cost paid capped at $200. The Rebate for the set-up of the controller is the cost paid to have it set-up, capped at $100. The Rebate is only available on eligible products and services purchased from Waterwise Irrigation Design Shops and Waterwise Garden Irrigators between 15 September 2021 and 31 May 2022. The rebate cannot be claimed until weather-based irrigation is operational at the property and has been signed off by a Waterwise Garden Irrigator. The rebates will cease after 31 May 2022 or when the limit of 600 rebates is reached.

The Rebate can only be claimed by completing and submitting a form online at https://www.watercorporation.com.au/Waterwise/Waterwise-offers/Irrigation-controller-rebate/Application-form and must be accompanied by copies of:

  1. Proof of purchase in the form of a copy of the tax invoice/s issued by a Waterwise Irrigation Design Shop and/or a Waterwise Garden Irrigator detailing the eligible product and set-up price; and,
  2. A recent Water Corporation Water Use Account for the property receiving the eligible product and service; and,
  3. The Waterwise Consultation and Programming service checklist completed by the Waterwise Garden Irrigator at the property.

The Rebate can only be claimed once by a customer. The Rebate can only be claimed on eligible weather-based irrigation products, Waterwise Irrigation Consultation and Controller Set-up and Programming Service. Customers who received the Waterwise Irrigation controller discount or rebate as part of previous years offers are not eligible to apply for this Rebate. Where a customer owns multiple properties, the Rebate will only be available for one property. The Rebate is non-transferable and valid for a limited time only or until 600 Rebates have been claimed. Payments will be made by electronic funds transfer once the Rebate claims have been validated. Final decisions regarding reward eligibility will be made by the Water Corporation.

The Corporation will not be liable for any claims or loss suffered as a result of the installation of the irrigation control unit unless, and only to the extent that, the Corporation has been negligent. The relevant businesses that supplied the products and services will be responsible for managing all aspects of customer service associated with their products and services, including but not limited to bookings, installations, warranty claims and complaints.
