How to read your meter
On the meter diagram shown, the reading is taken from the figures shown above the word gallons. The meter reads 233,946 which is the total number of gallons of water recorded since the meter was installed. Because our charge is only in thousands and hundreds, the meter reader discards the last two digits with the black background. The reading shown would be 233.9 or 233,900 gallons. Look at your most recent water bill. The reading under current reading would now be your previous reading. Subtract the previous reading from the reading on your meter now and you will have the amount of water usage since your last reading.
