How much do you pay if your on a meter?

Recommended Posts

Neil

I have a friend that has just bought a house he's on a water meter and said I can put a static tank in his garage with my own water meter for e to pay my part that I use, what is a good filter system to produce pure water fast? I currently have my setup in my van with a Merlin ro which chucks out a lot of waste water[emoji85]

What prices do people pay on a meter per month and how much water you using in a month?

Guessing resin costs more than waste water.

It cost me around 18 pounds to produce 1000 L RO water . (2000l is waste) so a 3000L run in total . My tap tds is around 450 . I get it Down to 15 PPM and polishes the rest throug a DI Vessel in van before the hose-reel .

If you're TDs is 300 you need to run it through a ro system. If you go to your water suppliers website it will give you the cost of a cubic metre of water and the cost of the waste water add the 2 together that's your price.

@Clearvision how much water doe you make daily? A year seems a long time to not have changed the resin down from 450!! Only asking as wanted to use this method for a long time but just can't see it being the cheapest mothod!

I do around 500 litres a week but the two first vessels take out any rubbish then the third polishes it off, when the first ones resin is well used it'll still take crap out then still goes through the other two to remove the rest of the sh@t same as when the second one starts to get used it'll still have sh!t removed from the first too then polished off from the last one, it's tried and tested for me, maybe I'm just lucky haha

Doesn't rain water have bacteria in so you have to use it after a certain amount of days ?

Well , im not drinkin it Tho ! :D

Fun aside ! I know what you mean , and theres some algae growth when its hot and sunny . But its really not a problem , ive Got an inline particle filter and a DI Vessel and the resin have lasted a year Now (11 L.) Vessel .

But licking your mouth after some backsplash Would defo be a bad idea i Think . ( bacteriawise) :hey:

I believe RO and DI afterwards is the good cheapest Way , or rainwater and DI ..

My mate is not on a meter they estimate his bill so could I still use his tap and sand his bill be the same as there is no meter?

Bill should stay the same mate. Where are you filling up now? What has changed why would you want to use his tap now?
