Residential and commercial water meters are read in one hundred gallon increments. By deducting the previous month's reading from the current month's reading, you can obtain the amount of gallons used and billed on the current month's bill.
How to Read Your Meter
When reading a water meter, the last two digits on the right of the dial are dropped and not included in the reading. Therefore, if the meter dial reads 0369200, the actual reading would be 03692.
How to Find Water Leaks
Even the smallest leaks in your house add up to gallons of wasted water and potentially hundreds of dollars per year on your water bill. Unfortunately leaks are not always obvious and can go a long time before being noticed. You can save a little money by doing some basic tests on your own before calling in the professionals. Here are a few do-it-yourself ways to check for leaks in your house.
