Reading Your Water Meter
City staff will read your meter for billing purposes, but if you wish to monitor your own consumption, here's how:
- Shine a flashlight over the flashlight icon (located on the register) to turn on the LCD display.
- Take a reading at a set time of the day.
- Take a second reading at the same time the next day.
- The difference between the two readings is your daily water consumption.
Understanding Your Water Meter Display
The nine-digit LCD displays your meter reading in cubic metres. To calculate your water usage, you will need to convert your reading into litres by multiplying your meter reading by 1,000.
i.e. If meter display shows 24.5200, usage = 24,520 Litres (24.5200 x 1000)
