Ok… we cry “Uncle”!!
City has finally started metering our park as a whole instead of just a flat rate per home. We thought we would be OK cost wise at first but several months in and the need to meter individual homes is significant.
Here are some basics about our situation that may help in narrowing down any advice you can provide.
- We live quite a long ways away from our park so it is impossible for us to check the meters ourselves. We do have a park ‘overseer’ who could do it for us.
- The meters themselves would have to be under each individual trailer with locations varying with each home due to it’s age and water hookup location. Crawling under each home every month is not a good solution… so we need something we can check via a wand or some other way.
- Are there meters that have the control flow meters under the trailer but the readouts at the exterior of the trailer? That may be a really dumb question but worth the ask I suppose.
- I have heard there are meters out there that can be hooked up via internet and monitored remotely. That would be great but service is spotty out there and we would need satellite service with a dish and boosters I would imagine. Not an out of the question deal but just an fyi.
Best meter out there???
