How to solve the problem of household installation of water meters in old residences?

    Answer: At present, some old-structured residential apartments and Shikumen houses in Shanghai still share one water meter. The inner pipes shall be managed by the property sector. Installation of sub-meters needs to be approved by the property sector. Due to the special structure of these apartments and houses, the new pipes shall be installed through the users¡¯ houses, which is an issue to be coordinated by the property sector to make sure there is consensus among all users. Besides, the residential committee also plays an important role in coordination. Therefore, the water supply company shall also reach the residential committee for assistance to secure the implementation of household installation of meters at the right time.
