    In process of buying a new house...... and its got a water metre!

    I know the cost is really irrelevant, but just wondering what the biggest water bill people are coming out with.

    We're not selling our current house, just going to rent it out so just wondering if its going to be worth telling tenants i'll be popping back to use the outside tap to fill up the vans!

    I'm on a water meter here and bills are fine, it works out about £2.something for 1000lts.

    Cool, ta mate. Peanuts..... just I was talking to a guy the other day who said if he was on a metre, he wouldnt be able to afford to run anymore. He had clearly been smoking drugs! :wacko:

    I thought it would be a lot to pay too when I first started but running it for a year it's nothing. With my ro it take 3000lt to make 1000lt pure. And I've not noticed any big bills.

    RC is that the usual conversion? ie 3000lt to make 1000lt of pure? What happens to the other 2000lt? I am thinking about going wfp (only for some jobs) and will definitely need an RO system.

    H is right, the other 2000lts is waste water, i can put another membrain on it to reduce the watse and increase the pure water but not really got round to that yet.

    Obviously the longer you need to keep an outside tap running the more it will cost to produce pure if on a water meter. Small R.O's take a lot more time to produce pure rather than the pro ones used like a 40 40 single or twin RO setups that are a hell of a lot quicker.

    Also If not done so already should consider rainwater harvesting too as is cheap and easy to setup which can save using a R.O so much.

    Whats a 40 40? is that referring to ro size (40 inch) and does 40 40 mean there are 2 ro's?
