What is excessive water consumption?
Excessive water consumption is water use that exceeds the average customer’s water consumption over a given period of time.
In Israel, average water consumption per person is about 80 cubic meters of water per year, or nearly 200 liters per day.
Excessive water consumption can be attributed to a variety of factors:
Excessive Water Consumption Due to Leaking
Water leakage in someone’s personal system can cause water loss and, consequently, increased water consumption.
Once a leak starts, it’s not always noticeable. Hence, early identification can prevent water loss and the monetary charges that come with it.
How is excessive consumption due to leaking detected?
Excessive water consumption can be identified in the associated water meter, i.e. private consumption, or in the main water meter, i.e. shared consumption.
