Homeowner cuts water bill by 40%: City replaces water meter thinking it was defective
One of our clients in San Diego called me the other day to share that the City had changed their water meter at
their home because the City thought it must be defective; it was reading 40% under the normal usage for the last three months.
The truth is that they installed a Water Buddy greywater diverter and use the water from their bath tub and
shower to water their landscape, cutting their irrigation water usage by 40% every month. My clients are reusing 200 gallons of water a day which equals 6,000 gallons a month and 72,000 gallons a year.
So the real story here is that we know they are saving an additional 60-70,000 gallons of potable water that
would have ended up on their trees, shrubs and flowers.
Who wouldn’t want their home to be 40% more water efficient!
Well, that’s what Superior Water is doing for homeowners in San Diego. Superior Water started offering their
WaterBuddy greywater diverter to homeowners in San Diego since August of 2009.
This simple and effective diverter is the most cost effective system to be offered on the market. By diverting
water from a bath, shower, washing machine or bathroom sink into the greywater diverter where itis lightly filtered, it becomes ready to be reused safely in your yard for landscaping.
People can save 50–200 gallons a day depending on what you want to be diverted. These systems can be
installed in one day in most cases and can start conserving waterthrough reuse immediately.
The benefit in using this method of reuse is your using water that you paid for that would normally go down
the drain and mixed with raw sewage that is expensive to treat and will most likely end up being pumped out into the ocean after a costly treatment process.
Superior Water has its roots in the whole home water filtration business and has been a leader inthat
technology and service in San Diego for more than 14 years.
