Water charges are effectively gone, unless you are using excessive amounts.
The controversy is finally over after members of the governments's water committee reached a deal on the future of the charges.
It means there will be no more water bills but if a household is using excessive amounts, they will be hit with "levies".
Excessive usage will be 70% above the average household use and the average will be set at 133 litres per person a day.
The exact penalty for wasting water will be decided by the Housing Minister Simon Coveney.
It's also agreed that meters will have to be installed in all new builds.
The committee has recommended refunds for households that have paid some or all of their bills but it will be up to the government to decide how and when these refunds are paid.
