WHEN DO I REQUIRE A WATER AND SEWERAGE CONNECTION?

Connecting to any local authority infrastructure for a water or sewer connection can be quite daunting for our clients. That is why at YTB Plumbing we take care of the whole process for you, from start to finish. YTB Plumbing will complete the application process on your behalf as we deal with local authorities on a daily basis. No matter what size job or the location of your water/sewer connection, YTB Plumbing has the experience, knowledge, and expertise to get the job done for you. We pride ourselves on our quality workmanship and quick turnaround time to get your water/sewer connections installed for you as soon as possible.

Generally, all our water/sewer connections are done live (under pressure), this allows services to be connected at a later date without interrupting existing consumers, thus ensuring water and sewer are kept running during the whole connection process.

New connections for both water and sewerage (wastewater) are required when building a new property, duplex, or commercial development in the Gold Coast Region area.  Existing properties should already have these connections in place buy may need to have them upgraded or replaced depending on the condition of the asset.

 

WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER FOR MY CONNECTION?

  • New water connection sizes available are 20mm, 25mm, 40mm, 50mm, 100mm, and 150mm.  Larger water meters are available.
  • New sewerage connection sizes are 100mm, 150mm, and 225mm.  Larger connections are available.
  • Vegetation, existing utility services, and infrastructure (i.e. retaining walls) can all affect the placement of your water and sewerage services.
  • Do not plan to build over or plant large vegetation near sewerage and water connection points.
  • All new connections, relocations, disconnections, and sub-meter installations to existing developments require an application to work on council infrastructure.
