Drinkable water

Why should the meter value be converted into liters?
The numbers on the meter indicate the volume of water consumed expressed in m³, to calculate the bill. However, our goal is to measure the daily water consumption, therefore we ask for a conversion in liters.

Why do I only have 1 meter at home?
If you only have 1 meter in your house, it means that you have an independent boiler and therefore you produce hot water on your own (without depending on condominium boilers), to calculate your water consumption, it is therefore sufficient to measure cold water entering your home.

Why do I have 2 counters at home?
If you have 2 meters, it means that the hot water you use is produced by a condominium boiler (and not independent), to calculate your water consumption it is therefore necessary to measure both cold and hot incoming water.

Do I have to fill in the questionnaire in the evening?
No, you can also fill it in the next day but you must refer to the previous day. At the beginning of the questionnaire indicate the date of the day analyzed (es. if today is April 28 and I am filling in the questionnaire at 9 am I will indicate April 27 and enter yesterday's data).
