Your Meter

A water meter is a device that measures the amount of water coming into your home. Water meters may be located in your basement, utility closet or in a meter pit outside of your home.

A meter reader reads the meter on a monthly or quarterly basis. The meter reader may obtain your reading from an automatic meter reading system via a computer or they may need to walk up to the meter to obtain the reading. We then bill you for the amount of water that you have used.

Here's some information on what those numbers and dials on your water meter mean...

The Low Flow Indicator...

Moves when small amounts of water pass through your meter. This helps in detecting leaks.

The 10 Gallon Dial...

Measures the use of 10 gallons of water for each complete revolution.

The Gallon Readings...

Are wheels that measure the number of gallons that have passed through that meter. They increase from left to right and measure tens of gallons, then hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands, and then millions.
