Water meters to save money
Water meters to save money.
HYDERABAD: Most housing complexes do not meter the water consumption of residents individually.
Instead, the residents are charged a fixed flat rate.
The individual consumptions are never equal which results in most residents paying for others’ consumption as well.
Now, there is a solution for it, says Vivek Shukla, CEO and Co- Founder, Smarterhomes Technologies.
Each consumption is recorded and sent to the user and billing engine.
Installing WaterOn meters is a simple cut and paste job – cut the pipe, paste the adaptors and fix the meter at every water inlet.” Studies in behavioural sciences suggest that the most efficient approach to driving behaviour changes is to persistently compare consumption patterns of the user with their peer group.
“When WaterOns are installed at an apartment complex, most people can save at least 35% of water and related costs.
If all high rise buildings that currently do not have any metering, adopt smart water metering solution it can result in tremendous savings.
The problem of water scarcity is a growing one.
