It happens that after a downtime in the water supply (malfunction) in the faucets of consumers, turbidity occurs. This is the result of a hydraulic shock, which causes the sludge to build up on the inside walls of the pipeline, and with intense swelling of the faucets in the households, the water clears. The water supply system is also obliged to flush the distribution water supply network.
By “white water” is meant the water into which the air has come in the form of bubbles. It is a dispersed air that bubbles out of a glass in about thirty seconds, so that the water is completely clarified. Malfunctioning home installations that suck in air are the most common problem. This phenomenon has no hygienic and sanitary significance.
Installations up to the water meter including the measuring instrument (water meter) are maintained by KP “Budućnost” a.d. Laktaši, and installations after the water meter the user or the owner of the water supply connection.
The obligation to pay the lease for the water meter is laid down in the Decision on Public Water Supply and Public Sewerage of the Municipality of Laktaši, and is payable by all consumers regardless of consumption. Water meter maintenance is used to maintain and replace the water meter and the charge depends on the consumer category and the water meter profile.
How is water consumption distributed in residential buildings (collectives) with a common water meter?

In proportion to the number of members of individual households, the distribution of total water consumed is also made. The number of household members shall be submitted in writing by the chairman of the condominium community assembly.
