When you have a house on the ocean, you are popular during the summer months. We are a family of 5. We often have other families of 4 or 5, and occasionally 2 families staying with us. One dishwasher fills up very fast, so having 2 is very useful.

They didn't say how much it costs but I would think that is a much better alternative than 2 dishwashers!
In 2002, they cost $4,500! It's cheaper to have two dishwashers.

Everyone knows an ant can't move a rubber tree plant.

I think I need to leave this thread.

I think you guys are reading me wrong. My bill was $2000.00 dollars for a one month period of time. In that one month period of time, the water usage read(by AMC) 300,000 gallons of water. The reading for me are actual readings not estimated readings.. Basically, my usage every single month has been the same for 2 years. See my billing below.
The summer months read a little higher(which is expected due to outdoor watering). But then look at the october 2017 bill. Its more than what I use the entire year. I don't know where to go with this next. Basically next step at this point is to file a complaint against AMC. Which means I goto court and present the evidence. BUT, since the AMC and BPU(Board of Public Utilities) have already taken my meter and tested it and say it tests fine, no one cares about anything else. I can tell you there are zero leaks No one stole water by connecting a hose to a spigot, etc.. Just to give some reference and scale, 300,000 gallons of water will fill a 100 foot by 100 foot by 4.5 feet deep pool. To fill something like that, it would take 27 days of water constantly flowing through a 1/2" hose 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The water company and BPU in my case is just useless. No one actually wants to get to the bottom of anything. They just want me to go away. They offered me a 1000.00 discount. But that does not solve the question of, where did the reading come from ?...AND, if the water meter is so accurate and if it reads 300,000 gallons of water, then why am I offered a credit? If I used the water as the meter says, then I should have to pay in full. ? Correct? Why should I be offered a discount for something I supposedly used? Any thoughts anyone??

The BPU is paid to step in and witness the water meter testing that is done by the AMC at their facility once they take the meter off of my property. Once the meter is taken off of my property, I wait and am then sent paperwork with the readings and tests with the percentages of whatever their testing needs to meet. I got my paperwork from the BPU and it was the wrong paperwork. It was basically my name and address with another AMC customers meter serial number and testing results.(glad these guys aren't in charge of testing blood work!). SO the guys brought into the equation to oversee the testing process aren't competent enough to send me the correct paperwork, but yet I am supposed to rely on their paperwork results to be accurate? When I order a sandwich at a deli and my order is made wrong, that is one thing, but when a board that oversees the utility companies to make sure there is no foul play can't get it together, what is one to do?
