"After installing Sub-Meters, the Association saved over 40% in water bills. Not only did this help conserve water, but the water district also took notice and appreciated all the efforts. Note, this was done 9 years ago and conservation is still going strong! The Board and management had the vision for water conservation even then!"

Dawn Brady Property Manager CACM CACM

"California Sub-Meters completed our sub-metering in the summer of 2007, and what a difference it has made to our Association! Each unit now has its own individual water meter and we have reduced our Association water/sewer bill by over 35% per month. Bi-monthly billing and meter reading is seamless and very user-friendly. In addition, residential water usage costs are fair and equitable now - those that use more, pay more. California Sub-Meters was professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with."

Mike Yelda President Orleans East HOA


In the past, multi-family communities had one master city water meter which would service all residents. The water and sewer costs were simply included in the monthly homeowners dues and divided equally among the residents. This worked well when water/sewer rates were a fraction of what they are today and possible future water shortages was not a concerning issue. Sub-Metering is a term used for installing individual meters behind the city master meter. Sub-Meters are the same type of meters the city uses to measure water usage.
Sub-Metering is a solution to manage water and sewer costs for homeowners’ associations by offering equitable distribution of cost. You are paying only for the water you use and not your neighbor’s laundry, car wash, toilet/faucet leaks, or excessive water use. Sub-Metering eliminates the residential water costs from the monthly homeowners’ dues which in turn can help to keep the dues dues low and improves property values. Residents pay their water/sewer bill just as they pay other utilities such as gas, electric, etc. Sub-Metering promotes water conservation. When residents are accountable for their water usage, they will conserve. Sub-Metering can detect costly leaks. There is a red triangle on the face of the meter that moves when water is running through the meter. A leaky toilet can waste 50,000 gallons of water in 30 days!
California Sub-Meters will read the individual water submeters, bill, and collect the money. A service fee is added to each individual water bill. All monies collected along with accounting reports are sent to your homeowners association who in turn pay the city water bill.
Residents will be billed at the same water/sewer rates and for the same services as the water department in your district is charging your community.
