The differences between happy tenants and not so happy tenants.

With sub meters, everybody is happy.

Separate meters for all apartments
The bill is divided fairly in a true ‘user pays’ system
Landlords can legally pass on water charges to tenants, meaning tenants are encouraged to use water responsibly
Rent remains stable, with water costs no longer needing to be absorbed by landlords

With the old meters, not so happy.

Without sub meters
One meter for all apartments
Total bill is divided unfairly – not on actual water used
Landlords are legally unable to pass on ANY water charges to tenants, meaning tenants can use as much water as they wish, without any incentive to save
Just one wasteful tenant can make everyone’s rent increase as landlords need to pass on the extra building water costs

Some things you should know about water meters.

  • A remote reading device will soon be available as an optional attachment, enabling you or your water provider to download your meter reading from the Cloud.
  • Sub Meters are usually installed within the boundaries of your unit, not on common property, so no body corp. approval is needed to install one.
  • Current Australian legislation is denying all unit owners in older buildings the right water sub meters for ‘user pays’ water billing.
