    Can anybody advise me? I want to know how much I would be paying per litre of water if I were in a small commercial/light industrial premises with a water meter.

    not sure about commercial tariff as different areas charge different

    on my domestic water metre is cost me, at the minute as upgrading soon, less than £10 per 1000lt of pure water. that's because the RO at the minute has a ratio of 1:2 (1000lt pure:2000lt waste) that will soon be the other way round when I have finished upgrading my RO unit and that cost will be a lot less.

    Thanks for the feedback RC. Does that mean that you are paying less than £10.00 for 3 thousand litres? Still a lot of money if you are doing it 5-6 days a week - 2.5 grand + per year.

    Best ppl to talk too would be your water provider I would have thought. As well as manufactures/resellers of ro's etc to gather the data you would need.

    You could then calculate cost but would be dependent on the water purification plant you want to setup and volume of pure water you want to produce either to sell or use yourselves.

    Hope that helps?

    yes less than £10 for 3000lts of water, including waste cost. its nothing in the long run. the total amount I get back from that water when working is up £400-£500.
