As March and April progress, the days will start getting warmer and longer. As homeowners anxiously await the arrival of summer, plans for big gardens and luscious lawns are being made all throughout the area. With all of this extra outdoor activity comes extra water use! If you are looking to save money on your water bills this spring and summer, consider installing a second meter on your property.

How Do I Save Money?

When your water bill is calculated, a large percentage goes to sewer and wastewater fees. When it comes to the water you use inside of your home, this fee is definitely necessary! But, what about the water you use outside? Most of the water used in hoses, sprinklers, and other outdoor equipment is simply soaked up into the soil, meaning no sewer fees should be applied.

Unfortunately, there is no way to monitor that when only one meter is being used. A second meter tracks the water you use outside, so you do not get charged any unnecessary fees. The water used inside of your home will be tracked completely separately, so you will only be charged for what you use for showering, doing dishes, washing clothes, and all of your indoor activities.

If it doesn’t seem worth the hassle, think of all the yard work you do when the weather gets nice. If you regularly run a sprinkler system or water plants and gardens on a daily basis, that adds up quite a bit! On average, over half of most homeowners’ water use during the summer months is outdoors! That’s a lot of dollars you save by investing in a second water meter.
