This research is completed to several of case study. The area of the research is
around Klang Valley. The number of case study of this research is two (2) building which is applied this system in their building.

Mostly the reasons why this system is applying within the building due to reduce monthly water payment cost. For your initial cost, the results with the finding indicate that it's quite expensive however the installation cost is depend kind of system that was used. If the
