Water submetering is based on the concept of measuring the actual cost of water consumed in an individual unit, be it an apartment, condo or commercial unit. Water submeters are installed on existing water lines and read by a remote wireless communication system. SSI simply reads the consumption monthly or as necessary and generates a water bill to the residents based on actual gallons used and the rates charged to the community by the utility company. Residents may either make payments online or send a check or money order with the remittance portion of their monthly invoice. Landlords are then reimbursed for their portion of what was collected by SSI.
Once residents become aware of and responsible for their own consumption, the overall usage in an entire community will be reduced by an average of 35%. That’s good for the planet and your pocket.
In order to assist residents in controlling their water consumption, we have provided these Conservation Tips.
