What are the benefits of Smart Water Meters?
The cost of Metered Water is increasing along with energy - and the costs for heavy users is considerable.
When you combine this with a degree of inaccurate billing that is widely recognised as unacceptable there is a strong case to implement a Smart Meter (AMR) program to control and monitor your water usage. AMR will help you to identify and eliminate misbilling and a detailed analysis of your water usage can be broken down by building, department, tenant, equipment or shift.
Water Utility Managers listed various benefits when adopting smart meters:
