Water consumption matters


Verto is Finland's leading manufacturer of household-specific water metering systems. We have 30 years' experience and expertise, and our products have become the best on the market. We are popular thanks to the ease of use and reliable metering data our system provides. Our products excel in smartness, as well as in durability.

The life cycle costs of a Verto water metering system are significantly lower than those of competitors.

Verto flow sensors only have one moving part. And unlike some other remote-reading systems, the Verto system does not need batteries. That is why the Verto system has a long service interval, which depends on the amount of water used and the length of time the system has been in operation.

The service interval of one flow sensor is a million litres – at average rates of consumption, the sensor should last 15 years. The sensors are serviced when necessary in each household. The maximum service interval is 30 years. There is no need to worry about keeping track of service intervals, as the Verto system notifies you when a sensor needs servicing.

Water accounts for at least 40% of the heating energy and associated costs in a modern block of flats. In Verto homes, water consumption decreased by an average of a third. This benefits everyone: the greenness of your home is nowadays an important competitive edge. When residents benefit, the same saving is directly visible in terms of property profits.

Household-specific water metering is the most profitable energy investment

Extra thermal insulation for a building pays for itself in 10–20 years. The cost of improving the windows can be recouped in 5–10 years.

Because water is expensive, the most profitable energy investment is saving water. Verto systems pay for themselves within 2–3 years on average, including installation.

The one-off cost of the investment averages approximately EUR 6 per square metre of floor area.
