DEAR CAPE TOWN – Under the new by-law‚ anyone who wants to use non-municipal water for domestic purposes will need the council’s written permission. And where borehole water is used for irrigation it will have to be used sparingly‚ efficiently and “in line with the watering times of the water by-laws”.

Property owners will also have to tell the council when they fit or change a geyser‚ heat pump or solar hot water panels‚ and only registered plumbers will be permitted to work on these devices.

When a property is sold‚ a certificate will be needed from a registered plumber guaranteeing that its water installation conforms with the by-law.

The amendments also give the council powers to insist that a water management device‚ sub-meter or pre-paid meter is fitted to each unit in a sectional title scheme. Body corporates must read sub-meters and blow the whistle on any resident flouting water restrictions.
