If you're building a new house, you're likely to have to connect to our water main and sewerage network.
This may involve:
your plumber connecting to an existing Unitywater connection point OR
your builder requesting a new or altered connection point for the plumber to connect to.
Does your block already have a water meter and sewerage connection?
The majority of blocks will already have a water meter installed and sewerage connection point.
If this is the case, then you do not need to involve Unitywater.
Your plumber can connect your new house to the existing water meter and sewerage network. It is recommended you request a detailed infrastructure plan so the plumber can locate the sewerage connection point.
Almost all blocks are in this category.
If your block was developed prior to 2009 and has not previously had a building on it, it is possible that you may not have an existing connection point.
Water connections are generally provided for a fixed fee, but will sometimes require a quote from Unitywater. All sewer connections require a Unitywater quote.
