If you're feeling uneasy opening a Fort Saskatchewan water bill, you're not alone.
 
To make sure your bill matches up with consumption, Dan L'heureux, owner of Cambridge Electronics, is suggesting Wi-Fi-based water monitors. They're not cheap, but a good peace of mind.
 
"It's a little tool that you can add to your meter and it's non-intrusive so you don't have to cut pipes or do anything like that," said L'heureux.
 
He suggests the Steamlabs Smart Home water Monitor ($200USD) and MarCell Cellular monitoring with Water SPuck ($219USD).
 
The devices monitor volume consumption with real-time results. They will also alert when a situation strays from the norm.
 
"Basically, these devices will just clamp-on and it's using ultra-sonic and monitors the flow."
 
These systems work with a downloadable app on either IOS or Android.
 
The provincial government recently stepped in on the local issue, proposing free mediation services for those needing help resolving water billing issues.
