Each month I receive the bill for my rental property’s water, and communicate the cost to my tenants to include in their monthly rent. In the past there have been a few higher bills that have raised questions since they don’t receive the bill directly from the water company. bluebot has given my tenants ultimate transparency and the ability to monitor costs and usage as they are occurring. They love the ability to see their usage in real time, and I like knowing they’re prepared for their water bill and being mindful of their usage.
Drought situations continue in most of the country, and water utility companies have to react to encourage conservation and keep taps flowing. There are measures that can help consumers feel more in control of their water use and make better decisions that ultimately impact us all.
