If you live in an apartment, townhouse or unit you may be paying more for your water bills than you should.
Many properties managed by Owners Corporations or Body Corporates are engaging plumbing professionals to install individual water meters feeding units rather than just “splitting the bill” between occupants.
Some units have families of 5 living in them whilst others are single occupants – all the while having differing levels of water usage.
Installing individual water meters is a project undertaken between the owners corporation, a licensed plumber and the local water authority to ensure that all occupants are only responsible for the water usage within their occupied unit.
As utility rates for gas, electricity and water increase, many occupants welcome the individual water meter installation as opposed to sharing the quarterly invoice for water usage.
Many older units still have galvanised water lines that should also be replaced for copper. This will also reduce the likelihood of bursts along the old galvanised line. Something we see a lot of in older areas with building over a certain age.
We recently had a call from someone looking to install a new water meter at his unit and had not called a licensed plumber for advice beforehand. Paperwork had already been lodged with the relevant local water authority to have a new meter installed and they had been given no framework of the work involved.
Always ensure you speak to a licensed plumber before undertaking any project as you may find yourself stuck in a situation that costs you more than you bargained for.
