Our sub-meters are purpose-designed for easy, affordable installation to existing infrastructure. Our reading system uses safe and secure radio technology, no wires or read-out panels to be maintained. Compliance is simple as cartridge-type measuring capsules unscrew for replacement and recycling.
Clients receive notification by SMS when their sub-meter detects a leak within their unit, and the Body Corporate is notified of unusually high or low common water usage that may suggest a supply leak – so you spend less time finding leaks and get onto the next job faster.
Whether it is to fix a leak, provide a water efficiency certificate or fit new measuring capsules – measuring, monitoring and data validation means you’re an integral part of a sustainable community.
Fair Water Bills sensures owners only pay for the water they actually use. Access charges with applicable concessions continue to be invoiced by their water provider, while their small share of common water is accounted for via strata levies.
90+ days is too long to discover a leak. ECO Meters help reduce the risk of property damage and encourage timely maintenance. Owners are alerted to a leak within their unit, so they can call you to get on top of the issue right away.
Measured water usage charges may be on-charged to the tenant providing the tenancy agreement states so, and the premises is water efficient.

We assist with any change of billing arrangement, so you can say hello to Fair Water Bills!
As our sub-meters are not used for direct billing by water providers/councils, they are not required to conform to their Metering Technical Specifications. However, they must be installed according to AS/NZS3500 and local government requirements.
Water providers have a number of sub-metering and billing arrangements available for Community Titles Schemes to facilitate equitable billing. e.g. In the City of Gold Coast, our private metering solution falls under Scenario 1 of the relevant Policy.
We provide a Body Corporate Document Bundle and support to ensure a smooth transition to equitable bills.
Our sub-metering solution is suitable for multi-unit properties that either:
Where there is an isolator – we have a suitable meter.
“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.”
