huge savings on waterJun 07, 2007


EVERYONE -

1) make sure to have your water bill carefully checked! We just got back, yes, $25,000. (the guy hired to review the bills got to keep 10% as payment)

2) also we had a plumber fix every single leak inthe building and review all plumbing in each apt and our bill went down dramatically!

3) if you have a commercial tenant, they should pay their own water bill. OUrs was using our water and we worked out a payment deal for past costs when we found out.

water meter - steve Jun 08, 2007


Sally is right. Let me add one more suggestion:

4) If the water bill is currently "estimating" your building's water usage, buy a water meter. We did this and saved about 30% on our water bill. (The city was estimating greater water consumption than was accurate.)

Water Bills - Board Newbie Jun 11, 2007


Sally, is the person you hired to review your water bills available for hire? If so, could you provide his info? Just curious, how many units is your building?
Thanks.
