CAPE TOWN – The University of Cape Town (UCT)’s information for community services team has created an app that will help users track their water consumption.

The app called Drop Drop also predicts what their monthly usage and water bill will likely be.

UCT Professor Ulrike Rivette explains how it works.

“Go to your water meter and take a water meter reading. This can help you to understand your water meter. Once you have taken your water meter reading, say of three days in sequence, it can help you to predict your water consumption."

Rivette says it also helps to find water related problems around your home.

“This also helps you to identify water leakages by guiding you through the process because it’s not easy to find water leakages.

“Most people don’t know water leakages can be in the garden, they can be on taps outside the house.”
