How you can save money using a garden water meter

You can water your garden and property via the main water meter you have registered, of course. But watering is usually cheaper if you use a garden water meter, which measures the use of water that does not drain into the municipal sewer system or a cesspit.

The benefits: If a garden water meter is employed, sewage fees do not apply for water used in the garden. We at the SWK Energy Center can advise you on whether installing a garden water meter would be worth the cost for you.

Saving money on garden watering – no problem using a garden water meter

You can cut your costs by watering the smart way

You may be able to save considerably on your sewage fees, depending on your consumption. All our customers who have a main water meter receive a ten percent reduction in the wastewater fees based on their total freshwater consumption, pursuant to Kaiserslautern municipal sewage bylaws.

This means that the customer pays wastewater fees on 90 percent of their freshwater consumption. Using SWK garden water meters can reduce your sewage charges further. This is because all water used for lawn and garden is exempt from these fees.

A garden water meter thus will always pay for itself if the percentage of water used for lawn and garden exceeds ten percent of your freshwater consumption, when the installation and purchase costs have been recouped by the savings.

SWK best price billing leaves your options open when installing a garden water meter. It’s no problem if the percentage of water used in the garden is still less than ten percent of your total water usage. For if it is, you still automatically get the ten percent you would have enjoyed without the garden water meter.
