Your Water Meter

Some of you have asked about reading your own meters. This is a great way to keep track of water usage. This is a Badger Recordall Model 25. We have now converted all of the domestic services to this style of meter. These meters all have radio transmitters so we can read them from a vehicle and do not have to open the meter box.

This meter reads 56350. We previously billed in thousand gallon units. We currently bill by gallons using all digits so it will alllow you to better track usage. Please notice that the far right zero is fixed and does not move.

The long skinny needle moves around the face, completing one revolution every 10 gallons. The small six pointed red star is called a leak detector. It will move if you have a very small leak. Sometimes the movement is jerky and you might have to watch it for a few minutes. One of the best ways to check for a leak using your meter is to turn off everything in the house. Write down all of the numbers. Wait as long as you can without using any water, perhaps while you are at work. Then read it again. If there is any change you have a leak.

2" and 4" agricultural meters are very similar but most are not yet converted to radio read. Depending on the size and year of manufacture, ag meters can have 1, 2, or even 3 fixed zeros. For ag meters, we will continue to bill in thousand gallon units, which can be converted to acre feet by dividing by 326. Call us if you need to know the location of your meter.
