Types of Water Meters

Some residents have older odometer meters and some have new high-resolution meters.

Older odometer-style meters

  • Find the head of the meter.
    • It is about three inches in diameter
    • It has a large hand and a small red diamond or triangle.
  • Read the numbers from left to right where it says "cubic feet". 
  • Don't worry if you see what looks like water on the face of the dial. 
    • It is oil that prevents corrosion and helps the dial mechanism last longer
    • It does not enter the water supply or affect the quality of your water.

New high-resolution meters

  • Activate the display with a very bright light like an LED or cellphone flashlight.
  • Read the numbers from left to right where it says "cubic feet".
