Tell your landlord about the $200 rebate for fixing a leak

If you’re renting a property and find a leak, it’s worth informing your landlord or property manager and asking if they know about Living Water Smart’s Leak Find and Fix rebate. To be eligible for this rebate, they would need to contact one of Living Water Smart’s registered plumbers to check the leak, and if it costs less than $200 to fix, they won’t have to pay anything towards it.

All you need to do is forward them this article for information (if they’re unaware of the rebate), and be at home for the appointment with the plumber - that’s your job done!
