So I have been reviewing my water bill. The usage seems high so I am taking a closer look. I have a 3 unit building.
Unit 1: 1br with 1 tenant
Unit 2: 2br with 2 tenants
Unit 3: 3br with 2 tenants
The building is on one meter. The water company has billed me for 6000 gallons this past month. That's an average of 2000 gallons a month(67 gallons per day) per unit.
My question is: Is it possible to have this kind of usage? It doesn't seem possible. The older tenant doesn't even have a dishwasher. Yes each unit has laundry but 67 gallons a day? Per unit on average? I checked and there are no leaks or toilets running and no outside hoses for tenants. It isn't new. It has averaged this for months now. Now it's only just under .01 Cent/per gallon so the bill isn't horrible, I just question that usage. Any advice?
This seems inline with my buildings and the usage per unit. Funny how Owner paid expenses always seem to run higher than Tenant paid items. Good job though keeping an eye on the usage...you will notice if and when those toilets start running!! I have start converting all my toilets over to the flapperless tank type just for this reason.
Its a little below average
Thanks for the info! I wasn't sure because I have a well at my house and mostly flip so it's never really come up. It just seemed high but I suppose I shouldn't complain!
