Waterwise Irrigation Controller Rebate - Perth

Save water in the garden with a rebate on the purchase of a weather based irrigation controller.

Applications for the 2018 rebate program are now closed.

Due to high demand
the Waterwise Irrigation Controller Rebate closed on Monday 29 October 2018. If you have purchased an eligible irrigation controller and/or service, between 1 October - 29 October 2018 please submit your claim as soon as possible. 
Rebate claims will be accepted until Friday 30 November, 2018.

Please note: If you have ordered an eligible irrigation controller and associated services while the offer was open, but are waiting on installation and programming, please provide a copy of your order form along with your tax invoice, when submitting your rebate claim.

We need to review all claims to ensure they comply with the terms and conditions of the offer. We’ve had an overwhelming response to this offer, which has meant it’s taking us longer than expected to process rebates. While we are doing our best to review claims as quickly as possible, rebates may take up to 6 weeks to process, from the date of submission. Thank you in advance for your patience.


A weather based irrigation controller does the work for you and automatically adjusts watering times according to the weather. By only watering as much as gardens need, households can reduce watering by around 15% while keeping plants healthy.

How does a weather based irrigation controller work?

They use local weather data to adjust watering times, based on temperature and rainfall, to ensure your garden gets the moisture it needs, without over-watering. Some of the controllers are Wi-Fi enabled, allowing them to obtain weather data via the internet others use onsite weather stations. Many controllers also allow remote access, which means you can control your irrigation system via your mobile or computer.

We recently ran a trial where 60 customer's irrigation controllers were upgraded to weather based models. It was found that even with less water gardens remained healthy. The average household reduced their garden watering by 15% (around 95,000 litres) in the first year.

The graph below highlights the water savings that can be made. The dark blue bars show the amount of water used each month with a weather based controller. It's clear that watering according to the weather will save a lot of water.

Graph of annual water savings using irrigation controller

Below you can see how much water can be saved each month by adjusting watering times based on the weather and with irrigation turned off from 1 July to 31 August during the winter sprinkler ban.


Graph of annual water savings

Of all the water that is used in a household, nearly half is used outdoors. Being smarter with how we water our gardens and turning irrigation off for the winter sprinkler ban is a great way to make savings.
