Why do I have to pay for a plumber to move my pipes if I'm moving my meter more than 0.5 metres?

This is because we need to disconnect and seal the existing connection point and install a new service line off the water main at the new location. When we move the meter we will run a temporary plastic pipe back to your internal service, but you will then need to get a registered plumber to relocate the internal plumbing at your earliest convenience. To request a meter relocation, login to BuilderNet as a Guest user, then click ‘Lodge a water service application’.


How close can I build to the sewer pipe?

This depends on a variety of things. Please email us at with detailed information about what you are intending to build, and a site plan of the property on which you are intending to build it.


I am selling my house, what do I need to do?

When selling your house we will be informed of the sale or purchase details by the settlement agent. They will also organise a final water meter reading on your behalf. This will ensure you are only charged for the water that you used.

If your contact details have changed you need to inform us of this by filling out our change my details form.


How do I request to have my meter moved and how much does it cost?

You can request to have your meter moved through BuilderNet. 

Please refer to our Water supply service fees for further information about the cost of meter relocations.

If your meter is moved more than 0.5m from it's existing position, you may also need to engage a plumber to relocate your internal water pipes. Water meters must remain within 1.5 m of your property boundary.

To request a meter relocation now, log in to BuilderNet as a guest user, and then click on 'Lodge a water service application'.
