Water Submetering Services
What is Water Submetering?
Water submetering or submeters are a plumbing service that involves the installation of separate water meters into individual units in apartment communities, condominium communities, mobile home communities, condominiums, resorts and more. Sub-metering is needed in these types of properties to allow each resident or tenant to pay the water bill based on his or her consumption. Without submeters, the development owner will be responsible for dividing the water expense across all tenants and residents which is indeed unfair for those who don’t consume that much.
