Reading My Water Meter

Water meters record the amount of water used in the same manner as an odometer records the number of miles driven in your automobile. When NFCMA reads your meter, only the leftmost 4 digits are used in computing your bill. For example, a meter displaying the digits 0123456.7 would be read as 123 and recorded in NFCMA's billing software as 123 (thousand gallons) and would show on your water bill as 0123. The difference between the current meter read and last month’s meter read is your consumption for the given billing period.

Checking For Leaks

To test for a possible leak in your system, make sure that all water systems are turned off, and then check the small leak detector circle.
