The Master Meterer – Krishnamoorthy

Water Metering is an often discussed topic, and apartment metering, even more so, due to the complications rising out of multiple inlets.

There have been a few and often spoken about apartments that have implemented metering at a household level – namely Nestor Raga, Ashoka Windows, Samhita Square etc.

We came across this plumber—Krishnamoorthy—who in the meanwhile has implemented metering in multiple apartments. Here is the complete list. The largest is an apartment in Hyderabad – 800+ homes!!!

We are also impressed with the fact that he has diligently maintained a list of all apartments where he has worked. A task we sometimes grapple with πŸ™‚

And yes, for those interested, Krishnamoorthy is available on +91 98456 82355.

If any of you live in these apartments or know of people that live here, please do feel free to share your stories with us. We would really like to know how the metering has influenced the water demand, what have been the issues/learnings with the implementation, billing etc.

Do lakes actually recharge ground water and by how much ?

A question we often get asked as rainwater harvesters is, is there any point in building a recharge structure adjacent to a lake ? Does the lake not recharge ground water ? Will the recharge structure/well make any difference ? This is a very pertinent question and I can write on what we have seen from experience Very often you do see old open wells adjacent to lakes. The well used to be the place from where people drew the water for use. The water level in the lake and the water level in the well would more or less…
