$200 Pool Cover
Rebate Program

Buy an eligible pool cover, and receive a $200 rebate back from Sydney Water!

For a limited time, Sydney Water is offering customers a rebate of up to $200 as part of their Pool Cover Rebate pilot program.

Why is Sydney Water offering a rebate for pool covers and pool cover rollers?

An average-sized uncovered swimming pool in Sydney evaporates over 40,000 litres of water per year. A pool cover will help to stop water from evaporating from your pool. Sydney Water would like to support the use of pool covers and run a survey to determine how much water pool owners can save over a typical swimming season. The trial results will be used to plan future water-saving programs.

Who can claim a rebate in the program?

  • Owners of new and existing pools without existing covers with a Sydney Water connection
  • Residential customers only
  • Owners wishing to replace existing covers with new ones may qualify for a rebate if photos can be shown that the existing cover is not fit for purpose and is at the end of its useful life.


What pool covers are eligible for a rebate?

The rebate is for pool covers that

  • are new
  • have a minimum surface area of 25 square metres
  • are endorsed under the Climate Care Certified scheme
  • are installed on a rolling system (pool roller)


How do I apply for the Pool Cover Rebate?

To claim your Sydney Water Pool Cover cash-back, email poolcoverrebate@sydneywater.com.au to receive the application documents. A receipt and proof of installation are required.

What is the Climate Care Certification Program?

The Climate Care Certification Program is an initiative of the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia Ltd (SPASA) and is the industry’s efficiency and sustainability certification program.

Not all pool covers are not the same. Pool covers approved under the Climate Care Certified Program have been independently tested to achieve industry best practices and can withstand the
harsh Australian climate. A pool cover that has met these stringent requirements means that you can purchase confidently, knowing that you are choosing a certified environmentally sustainable solution.

A Climate Care Certified approved pool cover under the Sydney Water Pool Cover Rebate Program provides the following benefits:

  • Confidence knowing that you are choosing a certified and environmentally sustainable pool cover
  • Comfort that your pool and spa pool cover is responsibly made
  • Verifiable and certified evaporation and water savings
  • A cover that meets strict durability and performance standards
