Co-founder, Mary became aware of the problem through her work in multi-unit residential real estate. Further investigation showed that many of these units had concealed stop-taps, prompting the search for specialised product. Her husband and Director, Chris, led the search and settled on a premium quality, German-designed sub-meter perfectly suited for easy retrofitting and proven over decades across Europe.
Fair Water Meters’ innovative sub-metering products can be quickly and easily installed in existing buildings, empowering occupants to accurately measure their water consumption. The sub-meters are pre-equipped for drive-by meter readings and feature industry-first automatic leak detection and alerting capability.
In combination with simplified measurement of water usage, digital tools allow for easy management of water consumption, contributing to the sustainability of this precious resource.
“We own a flat in an older building and rent it out. Every owner is responsible for paying a portion of the water bill. It was surprising to find out that another unit, which was rented out, was actually operating a commercial laundry! We swapped to Fair Water Meters and our tenant is so grateful … we passed on the savings by reducing his rent as it was the right thing to do.”
“Sharing the bill when dining out can be fraught with danger. Sharing your water bill with your fellow apartment residents can be positively expensive! After switching to Fair Water Meters we discovered that one our fellow residents was running a day spa business from their apartment and we were subsidising them!”.
“We had a slow leak we didn’t know about in one of our units. It must have been there for years until Fair Water Meters were installed – their smart meters detected the leak in the first month and they texted us with the alert. Already they’re saving us money.”
