Water Meter Installation 2018 Update

After getting this water meter installed in 2014, I really wanted it to be a ripoff, like most other city services. But after four years of water bills, I can safely say that unless you're emptying Lake Michigan every time you shower, a metered account is a better deal. If you're on the fence, just do it.

https://youtu.be/PD1EcOw55tM

    Water Meter Installation Update - 2018
    Four years after the installation of my water meter, the half-yearly charges are less than a quarter of what they were when I was being billed for non-metered water. It's a great deal, as long as you keep the bill paid on time, which, of course, you do with all your bills.
