Neighborhood Con-man Up to His Usual Antics, Creating Hysteria about Water Company

A neighbor posted on NextDoor that the Spectrum contractor used 1.1 million gallons of water and only paid $600, instead of the $90,000 that members would have paid. See his NextDoor posted below.

I’m not sure how this neighbor calculated the $90,000 figure but I find their claim hard to believe.

Let’s apply some common-sense math to what we actually witnessed in Windermere.

If Spectrum’s contractor had really used 1.1 million gallons of water from the fire hydrant at the entrance to the community, they would have needed 220 trucks with 5,000 gallons capacity each. This is what a 5,000 gallon truck looks like:

That means, over a 60-day period, we would have seen four of these 5,000-gallon trucks loading up each day.  

Did you see that? I did not. Not once.

Apparently a lot of pictures were taken of the trucks that were used. Please post them in the comments if you think you saw this. I did not see that.

Instead, I saw the Spectrum contractors use much smaller tanks, something like this one, with a capacity of 500 gallons, on their flatbed trailer.

So, to reach 1.1 million gallons using a 500-gallon tank, they would have had to fill up 2,200 tanks in 60 days.

That would have been more than four tanks per hour, day and night, every day, for 90 days. Let it sink in 4 tanks per hour, 24 hours a day.

Clearly, that’s not what happened. If you think you saw that level of activity at the front hydrant, please correct me.

A more plausible explanation is that the meter that measures the water from that hydrant is faulty. Or something else, but 1.1 million strains credulity.

The neighbor who made this accusation should check their facts before spreading yet more false information about the water company.

Please do not suspend your disbelief when reading the con-artists’ posts on NextDoor.
