Smart Metering Sets a Standard for Water Conservation

Owners of manufactured housing communities, multi-tenant, and apartment units receive their water bill each month from the city. That bill has to be paid regardless of how little or how much water is used. Sometimes, owners argue that the billing system is unfair because it does not take into consideration actual water usage. Thus, they are being overcharged. A solution to this is a system that allows for water submetering.

Smart Metering is Setting the Standard
Water metering is a way that tenants can manage water consumption in a much more efficient way, which reduces the cost of what owners have to pay. A term that applies is smart metering. The installation of such a system can be expected to pay for itself as a result of reduced water consumption. If there is a water leak, tenants can be notified immediately of the problem. The landlord can fix the problem before it gets out of hand.

Water conservation is critically important. Without clean water, lives are seriously impacted. That is simply a fact, and a sobering one. Cities around the country have a responsibility to provide clean and safe water to residents and businesses. Unfortunately, there have been occasions when a certain city water supply has been contaminated.

Water Conservation Benefits
Using less water, as a result of conservation techniques, helps keep money in the pockets of everyone. The math is simple. Conserving water also saves energy. Most people do not think about it, but it costs money to pump water from a central facility into homes and offices. It takes energy to run the equipment. As much as 10% of a communities energy spend is moving water from one location to the next.

Working with a Reliable Water Meter Installation Company
Property owners looking to conserve water and save on their utility bills should look to find reliable, national, licensed installers. Such companies work with crews that are 100% internal—no subcontracting the work out to third parties. The reason being is that crews who work together well tend to function efficiently. The crews are motivated, committed, organized, and highly experienced. They can perform the highest quality installations.
