It’s been over three decades since water submetering entered the marketplace here in the United States, allowing owners of residential apartments, retail centers/commercial plazas, mixed use buildings, HOAs, and MHPs to reduce utility costs and energy consumption, while simultaneously increasing savings and property value.

Submetering systems installed today are much more sustainable and have a longer life span than submeters installed 30 years ago. In fact, the lifespan of newer submetering systems is upwards of 15-20 years! […]

As the weather warms up and many residents spend less time indoors, it’s common for maintenance issues to go unnoticed and result in high water bills. Educating residents on maintenance issues and water conservation techniques is an excellent way to ensure that their water bills don’t get out of hand during summer months.

Common Maintenance Issues Lead to High Water Bills

Do your residents know that leaking toilets are one of the most common maintenance issues resulting in high water usage? While the average two-person household uses 3,000 – 6,000 gallons of water per month, a leaky toilet can waste over 20,000 gallons of water in just one month! This maintenance issue can easily cost residents hundreds of extra dollars on their utility bills if leaks are not repaired. Dripping faucets and pipes may seem harmless to some residents, but these slow leaks can also lead to high water bills when ignored!

Educating Residents on Water Conservation Techniques

Educating residents about water conservation and common maintenance issues, such as leaky toilets, can help them to cut down on utility costs and improve their rental experience as a whole. Are you unsure of which conservation tips might be the most helpful for residents living in submetered units? WaterWatch offers several conservation and maintenance tips on our resident website, mywaterwatchbill.com! We recommend sharing these tips during community programs, with move-in materials and even via online newsletters or announcements.

Consider Utility Submetering for Your Property

When residents are not responsible for paying their own utility usage and maintenance issues arise, property owners can find themselves paying thousands of extra dollars each month for municipal utility bills.
