Guelph’s water and stormwater rebate programs are suspended in response to COVID-19. You can submit an application, and we will process it when all City programs and services are restored. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Free water audits for buildings with seven units or more

Building owners, managers, superintendents, and condominium boards can request a water audit to identify leaks and look for opportunities to save water and save money.

To qualify, the building must be in Guelph, use the municipal water supply, have a water account administered by the City of Guelph, and use at least 130 cubic metres per unit per year.

  • showerhead flow rates
  • kitchen and lavatory faucet maximum flow rates
  • the presence or absence of faucet aerators and the type of faucet aerators (if present)
  • the overall condition of all water using fixtures and appliances

Install monitoring equipment to track your building’s water use
