If you’ve owned or managed an apartment or condominium property for some time, you know that water and sewer costs are a major drain on your profitability.
Think about all the ways your property consumes water: Faucets, showers, toilets, irrigation systems, cooling systems, pools, fountains, dishwashers, laundry machines… it all adds up pretty quick, doesn’t it?
The utility expense with the fastest-rising cost for apartment and condominium properties continues to be water.
In fact, the cost of water in America has gone up an average of more than 55% since 2010. Even more troubling is for the foreseeable future, water costs are forecasted to continue to rise faster than any other utility.
As a multi-family property owner or operator, the time has come to rethink how much you are paying for water, and adopt a sensible strategy that gives you complete control over how your building consumes water.
One of the easiest ways to control your water costs is to avoid paying for water you don’t use, especially when that water use comes as the result of a leaking irrigation system, or maybe from a stuck cooling tower valve, or from leaky toilets.
But how do you know when and/or where to find those problems when they arise?
This is why WaterWatch was developed.
