Water meters can begin to work erratically and provide an inaccurate reading over time. If the meter on your property is over 15 years old, its time get it replaced. It may be costing you money without you realizing it. If it’s over two decades old, you’d have to get it replaced regardless of whether you want to or not. If you move into an older house, it’s important that you check the age of the meter to identify whether it needs replacing.
- You prefer to get real-time readings
If you are very conscious about the amount of water you consume and want a record of how much water your household is consuming, you may want to consider replacing the older standard water meter with a smart water meter. This installation will provide real-time information whenever you need to access its. It’s a great way to keep a closer eye on your water consumption.
- If it’s a shared water meter
If you live in a multi-unit apartment, you might have to share a single water meter with the other tenants and this could cause a lot of problems for all the people involved.
