Water meter reading

Did you know that checking your water meter regularly can save water and money?

It’s easy to do – turn off all taps around your home and record all numbers from the water meter. Do not use any water for at least two hours then check to see if the meter dials have changed since your first reading. Check it every week or month to help monitor your usage and detect water leaks early.
