1. Consolidating the entry points - Metering water - Any success?

Hi everyone,

I live in an apartment complex in Bangalore that has 182 units across two 7-storied blocks. It's peak of summer and as usual several mail threads have started in our email group on water consumption, best practices and how water should be charged, engineering theories etc. Just like India forgets their abroad test failures when IPL or home series is on, people usually forget about this HOT topic after summer :) This time hopefully we want to do something about it.
Basically, 182 apartments have 3 inlets each and I would like to understand the following:
(1) Is there a success story (by any member here) where a similar apartment complex has been successful in implementing metering of water?
(2) If so, what would be the rough cost of consolidating three inlets into 1 (i.e 182 metes) v/s installing 3 meters per flat (546 meters)
(3) Is there any proven remote meter reading technology that's affordable?

Best regards,
Ajith Prasad
