Claim Waterwise Rebates In 3 Easy Steps

Water is a natural resource that needs to be used carefully to avoid shortages in the future. As a result, many states offer Waterwise rebates for homeowners who replace old appliances, toilets, showers, etc., with new ones which use less water. If you're building a home or making renovations in your home, you can qualify for one of these rebates.

However, it can be difficult to determine which appliances/fixtures will qualify for a Waterwise rebate. Each state has its own rules and its method of application. Sometimes, each region or city may have its application process. Some of the applications are online, and others can be mailed in. Plus, different states, regions, and cities might ask for different types of documentation to get the rebate. And some will only give rebates to homeowners, while others might allow tenants to apply.

The best way to get around all these issues is to use DoNotPay. All you have to do is enter the type of appliance or fixture you are claiming a rebate for, enter all the information about it that you have on hand, and upload your supporting documents. DoNotPay will do the rest.

What Are Waterwise Rebates?

Waterwise rebates (or Water wise rebates, depending on where you look) are rebates that encourage people to use water carefully. There are many ways in which you can do this. Even just a cursory search on the internet yields the following results:

  • You can get a rebate for using a high-efficiency clothes washer. These use about 55% less water than regular washers.
  • You can get a rebate for installing a high-efficiency toilet that uses about 20% less water than a regular toilet.
  • Using rotating sprinkler nozzles can save a lot of water, so you can get a rebate for installing these as well.
  • Rain barrels and cisterns that gather rainwater, which you can later recycle, qualify for a rebate.
  • Turf replacement (replacing the grass in your front and back yard with plants that grow naturally in your climate) can also qualify you for a rebate.
  • Installing irrigation controllers in your home, which allow you to water your plants only as much as necessary, can help you qualify for a rebate.
  • You can also get rebates on certain showerheads, urinals, shallow wells, cooling towers, dishwashers, spray valves, etc.

So if you are building a new home, it makes sense to be Waterwise from the get-go. Or, if you are replacing old appliances or bathroom fixtures, you can look into getting new Waterwise ones. You'll need to do some research to find out which rebates are available in your area.

How Do You Apply for a Waterwise Rebate?

The requirements for a Waterwise rebate vary significantly from one area to the other. Of course, the more documentation you have, the better. And the sooner you apply for the rebate, the greater your chance of actually getting it. Here are some of the requirements you might need to fulfill to apply for a Waterwise rebate:

  1. You will need to be a homeowner or tenant with a utility bill in your name. Some places allow tenants to apply for a rebate with the owner's permission.
  2. You'll need to make sure that the change you're making saves water. For example, the older toilet you are replacing should use more water than the new one. You can also look for the Water Sense logo to determine which appliances or fixtures save water.
  3. You'll need to turn all the paperwork in pretty soon after the installation. The exact time limit varies, so you'll need to look it up for your area.
  4. You may need to submit photos of the toilets and appliances being replaced and the new ones. Or you might need to have them inspected.
  5. You'll need the receipt for the new appliance or fixture with the model number, purchase date, date of installation, etc.

Why Claim Your Waterwise Rebate With DoNotPay?

It can be challenging to figure out how to apply for a waterwise rebate. It's easy enough to find toilets, showers, washers, etc., that save water, especially if you look for the Water Sense logo. But once you've got your water-conserving equipment installed, what do you do?

Each state, city, and area has a different website for waterwise rebates. So it may be difficult to figure out where to apply for your rebate. Plus, as you can see above, the list of requirements to apply for a Waterwise rebate is long and even consists of photos and inspections. How do you get all this done in time to claim the rebate? You don't want to end up spending more time claiming the rebate than you did in the installation.
