When to replace your water meter?

When it comes time to replace water meter Sydney residents know just exactly who to call for quality plumbing solutions and services. But exactly when to have their meters replaced can sometimes still baffle home owners and tenants alike. Here are a couple of pointers to help you determine whether it’s time to replace your water meter or not.

When your water charges are too high
When your water bill doesn’t reflect the amount of water that you consume, there’s a good chance that there’s something wrong with your water meter. Keep in mind that once your water meter gives you the wrong reading, there’s always someone paying for it. Aspiring Plumbing Services can help ensure that you’re only paying for the water that you actually consume by providing reliable water meter replacement services.

When they’re more than 15 years old
Water meters tend to lose their accuracy as they age. When your beloved water meter turns 15 years old, it’s time to think about replacing the old timer as this might be costing you money without you knowing about it. When it’s reached 20 years you just might be required to change it even if you don’t want to. When you move in to an old house, you should check the age of your water meter to find out if it needs replacing.

When you want real-time water readings
If you’re the more OC type of water consumer and you’re looking to record, in real-time, just how much water your household is consuming then you probably want to change your standard water meter with the more modern smart water meter. Measuring the amount of water that you consume just as accurately as your standard water meter, the smart version will provide you with information whenever you want it. Great for keeping a closer watch over your water consumption.

When you’re sharing a meter with others
Residents living in a multi-unit apartment sometimes need to share one water meter with the rest of the tenants. This could lead to a lot of problems for everyone involved. More installing a sub-meter than actually replacing that one meter the whole building uses, installing a separate meter for each apartment unit makes for more accurate and fair water readings. If you’re tired with paying for the water your wasteful neighbour consumes, then you need to install a separate water meter.
