Install a greywater reuse system and get a $1000 rebate
Greywater systems collect and filter the water from your shower or bathtub so you can reuse the water to flush your toilets. With a greywater system you could use up to 30% less water and save money on your water bill.
A greywater reuse system automatically makes your home eligible for Blue Built Home certification.
Contact us before you buy or install a greywater system
Please call us to ensure rebate funds are available, then read, sign and submit one of the forms below to tell us if you are planning to install a greywater system in a newly-built home or an existing home.
When we receive your signed form, we will send you written permission to participate in the greywater system rebate program.
Hire a licenced plumber
Your greywater system must be installed by a qualified plumbing contractor to qualify for a rebate.
Building permits and backflow prevention
Your home must have a backflow prevention device installed by a licenced plumber, and you will need a building permit to install a greywater reuse system. Please contact our Building Services team for more information.
Submit your application, proof of purchase and installation
Schedule a final plumbing inspection
After your greywater system is installed please contact the City’s Building Services team to schedule a final inspection. If your inspection is successful, you will receive a written notice.
