Thank you for your interest in being waterwise. Please check back regularly for new offers.

With up to 40% of all household water being used in the garden, installing a weather-based irrigation controller is an easy way to save water. 

A weather-based irrigation controller can detect if it rained or is about to rain and adjusts the sprinklers accordingly. This can reduce a household's total water use by 15% per year.

Perth and Peel customers can claim a rebate of up to $300 towards the purchase and professional set-up of a new weather-based irrigation controller or component. If you're eligible, we will credit the rebate to your Water Corporation account.
