Pre-Paid Water Vending Meters

Postby KateP » 27 May 2010 15:30

I recall reading an article in Waterlines about pre-paid water schemes in South Africa using a special swipe card. I've heard very little about this approach but it seems a much better solution for peri-urban areas than purchasing from informal water vendors and street sellers. Does anybody have any experience with this form of financing or does anyone know where it would be possible to get hold of some pre-paid water meters and swipe cards for a trial. Cheers. Kate.

Hi Kate,

Last year I worked on a similar project in Madagacar and even though there are quite a lot of prepaid water meters on the market (mostly from China) it's not that easy to find the right one.

I don't know what you exactly want, but the below 2 links can be interesting for you.

Thanks Ralf! At first glance this looks exactly what I was looking for. I might see if I can get hold of a unit of each type. Thanks again for your help. Cheers. Kate.
