FALSE! My water bill jumped from 35$ to over 50$. I demanded that they change it out and my bill went back to where it used to be. You didn't say but if your tenet has daughters the usage will be higher. More showers, more washer loads, etc.
Here's a Rundown on Average Water Usage
Bath= 30-40 gals.
Shower= 5 gals. Per minute
Washer= 20-30 gals.
Toilet=1.6-3 1/2 gals per flush Lawn watering= 10 gal per minute
Good luck and let me know. Tom
