How to Read a water meter

To read a water meter: 

  • Identify where the water meter for your property is located.

  • Carefully open the water meter box lid and remove any obstructions.

  • Read the digits on the water meter (note some water meters have a small lid to flip to reveal the digits). Read the digits from left to right.

  • Please note that the black digits indicate kilolitres and red digits indicate litres (please ignore the 4th red digit if present).  1000 litres equals 1 kilolitre.
