Sub-metering refers to a water meter and related equipment (including automatic meter reader) within a complex of meterable premises that measures the supply of water to meterable premises.
Metereable premises constructed in a water service area after
1 January 2008 are required to identify water usage of individual
tenancies or owners. This is achieved through the installation of sub-meters in accordance with the Queensland Plumbing and Wastewater Code pt 4 and Council's Sub-metering Policy and Procedure.
For the purpose of sub-metering, meterable premises are those where
individual tenancies or owner's water use must be metered and include:
a) Each lot within a community title scheme, including the common property,
in a water service provider's area b) The sole-occupancy unit of a class 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 building in a water
service providers area; and c) Each storey of a class 5 building in a water service provider's area where
the building consists of more than one storey & sole-occupancy units are
not identified at the time of the building's compliance assessment.
Plumbing approval must be obtained for the installation of sub-meters. An Application for Sub-meter Certification must be submitted with the appropriate fee.
Council will conduct a sub-meter certification inspection following approval of the final plumbing inspection. During the inspection, Council will record the meter reading on each sub-meter and verify that:
a) The sub-meters are accessible for reading and maintenance;
b) The serial number on each sub-meter matches the serial number shown
on the As Constructed Plans;
c) Each sub-meter is correctly installed and only measuring flow to the
meterable premises being tested. Verification will be done by by physical
