RUBS (Ratio Utility Billing System) will significantly reduce utility consumption and increase recovery. When a property implements RUBS for water, we typically see 15-30% in water savings.

Virtually nothing! There is no equipment that has to be installed since the properties main water bill will be divided to each resident based upon several variables.

Other Benefits:

• Instantly reduced consumption and recovered utility costs
