Reading Your Water Meter
Reading your water meter is a good way to know how much water you are using. Water is measured by units, where 1 unit = 100 gallons.
A water meter looks like a car's odometer. To read the meter, you generally drop the last 2 digits including the painted-on digit. After dropping the the last 2 digits, read the meter from left to right.
Reading the Meter
Last Month's Water Meter:
This meter reads 287 units of water.
This Month's Water Meter:
This meter reads 361 units of water.
Current month's reading - last month's reading = units consumed
361 - 287 = 74
The difference, or water consumed for the measuring period, is 74 units or 7,400 gallons.
