How Sub Metering Saves Money

Sub metering is a solution to manage water and sewer costs for Homeowners Associations by offering equitable distribution of cost and peace of mind to residents. Residents only pay for the water they use and not their neighbor’s laundry, car wash, toilet/faucet leaks, or excessive water use. Sub metering eliminates the residential water costs from the monthly homeowners dues. This keeps homeowners dues low and improves property values. Residents pay their water/sewer bill just as they pay other utilities such as gas, electric, etc.
Sub metering promotes water conservation. When residents are accountable for their water usage, they will conserve. Sub metering is the only way to detect costly leaks. There is a red triangle on the face of the meter that moves when water is running through the meter so the resident can easily see when they have a water leak. A leaky toilet can waste as much as 50,000 gallons of water in 30 days!
