We lost all our invoice letters after moving to a new address. My husband would now like to register online to update our address but don't remember the account number and wprn. Is there any way we can retrieve them?

Thanks,

Thank you for your query.

If you are unable to locate your WPRN or Account Number you will need to contact our Billing Department on 1850 448 448 in order to complete additional security requirements. Our team will then be able to provide this information and process your account update. The lines are open from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5:30pm.

Kind Regards,
Siobhan

Hi,
It's been more than 1 year that I closed down my account on Irish Water and I can't get to my account page now to see my paid bills. (my shutdown account credentials don't work) I have my WPRN and account number with me but my current address is not subscribed on myself for water.
How can I reach, edit my address just for refund and claim for it?
Thanks,
Emre

Hi mr3673,

Thanks for getting in touch.

If you've moved out of your property and would like to update your correspondence address for your refund, we will be happy to assist you.

Would you mind sending us a PM with the following information:

- Full Name

Can you also provide your new correspondence address.

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,

Might sound like a silly question, but here goes...

We have paid every Irish Water bill.  Being from the UK, the water bill didn't present a problem to me as I am used to paying for water.

How does/will IW differentiate between those who should have paid and have not and those who have?  I know people who have not paid, never have paid, are proud of the fact they never paid yet expect to receive a 'refund'!!

I'm not Irish Water but it's as simple as if they never paid there's nothing to refund...!! 

Every account is linked to an individual and that individual has a bill for each period and balance for each period and that balance was either paid or not paid by the individual. If someone paid then refunds for the amount paid will be issued if someone has not paid there's nothing to be refunded.

You would think so. But that is not what I hear. I'll wait for the reps' reply, thanks.

Hi we moved to a new address. I just went into our Irish Water account and updated our new address for correspondence in the "personal details" section.
Do we have to do anything else now (ie. phone yee as well) or will this suffice in processing refund correctly
