Local Municipality turns around revenue collection with prepaid water meters


About prepaid metering

With prepaid metering, the consumer is in control of their own water usage, as they decide how much water to purchase. The Elster Kent prepaid metering solution ensures that the consumer can now budget for their water bill. At any time the system that has been installed on the consumer’s own property shows how much credit is on the meter and how much has been used.

The prepaid metering system has numerous benefits including the fact that any water leaks on the premises can be detected immediately, aiding water conservation. From a water services authority’s perspective, the Elster Kent prepaid metering solution is an effective income generating system.
