Retrofitting individual meters

Unfortunately, due to hydraulic design, it is unfeasible for utilities such as Sydney Water to retrofit individual apartment metering for many existing buildings, regardless of technology Improvements.


If you want to see if it’s possible for your building ask your plumber to determine if the building meets Sydney Water’s requirements for individual metering.


There are other options on the market that owners corporations can consider. If at all possible, they’re likely to be very expensive and there remain significant legal, billing, debt collection and liability risks.


While the concept is great, the payback generally doesn’t stack up.
