What is a cubic meter of water?

How much is a cubic meter of water

A cubic meter (m3) of water is the equivalent to 1000 liters of water.

1m3 = 1000 liters

The cubic meter is the measurement unit used by the water providers to calculate the water cost based on an agreed cost per cubic meter. 

Most of the houses have a water meter which measures the amount of water being consumed and if we are able to understand the value displayed by the meter we can calculate the water cost by ourselves.

As an example, the water meter below is showing a water consumption of 1,214 cubic meters (m3) which is the equivalent to 1214 liters.

1,214 cubic meters x 2 euro per cubic meter = 2,5 euro (approx.)
