    You can get a sub meter for your tap that feeds your r.o. You will then get reimbursed for what you use for your r.o as you only get charged for water that needs to be treated (what goes down the drain)
    I used to be on a metre, its not as expensive than you think mate.
    Check your tds and see if you can go d.i only, but either way, fit the sub metre!!!

    im on a metred house too, but when I talked to them about reimbursements they wanted to put me on a business tariff, which costs more.

    I use a 200gpd RO. use 375lts a day.

    1000lts of pure only costs under £10. so cost wise im not bothered to get any money back from them because its only a £1-2. plus the hassle etc,

    for what you can money you can make out of 1000lts £10 is nothing.

    my start ppm is 450, personally its not worth the hassle of fitting one, just to save a few quid. by the time you buy a sub meter and fittings its not worth it.


    im happy paying £10 per 1000lts as I can get about £400-£500 worth of work from that 1000lts.

    Don't forget to put a price/ value on your time spent 'working' on your business not just time spent working IN your business. ;-)
