An In-Depth Look at Water Meters

An In-Depth Look at Water Meters

Ever wondered how water meters work? Curious to find out if this type of device is capable of helping you to save some cash? If so, be sure to read on. 

Here’s everything you could need to know about water meters and the metering process:

Why you need a water meter

If you want to retain full control over the amount of money your business spends on water per annum, you need to integrate a water meter into your company premises right away. Should you fail to do so, you will forever be at the mercy of the ‘ratable value.’

What is a ratable value? This is an average estimation of your water usage based solely on your work premises. It doesn’t take your actual water consumption rates into account — it focuses on factors such as when your property was built, how much it is worth, and what location it resides in.

The benefits of water meter installation

Water is an incredibly valuable commodity, which is why you should seriously consider metering your usage of it. Once you take this all-important course of action, you will be sure to reap the following benefits:

Financial benefits

The biggest financial benefit of installing a water meter is the fact that you will only be charged for the amount of water that your business uses. This means that you won’t have to pay the price for the excessive way in which other companies in your local area consume water.

The ability to monitor your water usage is another benefit that you will no doubt reap once you install a water meter in your workplace. This means that should you ever notice that too much water has been used over a specific period, you will be able to take preventive action to ensure that no more money is wasted going forward.

 

Environmental benefits

Are you determined to play your part in the war against climate change? If so, installing a water meter is a simple yet effective way to make your company more eco-friendly.

As stated, you will be allowed to keep on top of your water usage once you install a meter. This will make you aware of the scale of water you are wasting daily, which in turn will actively encourage you to conserve more water in the future. Ultimately, this will aid you in your bid to limit the strain you place on planet earth and its natural resources.

 

How to save money on water

Installing a water meter isn’t miraculously going to solve your cash flow problems. Having this device at hand will help you to stay on top of your water usage, that much is for certain, but the all-important task of keeping your usage levels down still falls to you.

If you want to consolidate the profit that you work so hard to turn over, you must find a way to save water in your workspace. Here are six ways you can do just that:

  • Perform business water audits regularly
  • Never run your appliances on half loads
  • Rethink your workspace landscaping to ensure that it is water-intensive
  • Check your workspace for leaks
  • Install motion sensors on taps
  • Teach your employees all about the importance of saving water

Are you, quite literally, pouring your annual profits down the sink due to your organization’s excessive water usage? Are you worried that your company is having an adverse effect on planet earth’s natural resources? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you should install a water meter right away.
