Water submetering has become incredibly popular over the last few years. The reason is that it allows the owner or manager of a multi-unit property to accurately bill each tenant for their own individual water and sewer usage. Previously, the cost had to be divided equally between all existing tenants. This practice is often extremely unfair and inaccurate considering the discrepancies that exist in water usage from tenant to tenant.
The submeter process comprises developing a system that includes the appropriate type of water meters for your application and typically a wired or wireless Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system that matches the specific needs of the property owner/manager. Find out more about how it works here.
