How do I read my water meter?

There are several reasons why it is helpful to be able to locate and read your water meter. 

First, you might be interested in just how much water you use in a day.  By reading your meter at the beginning and the end of the day you can compare the two totals to tell how much water you and your family used.

The second reason is to check for leaks.  If you turn off all the taps in your house, and all your irrigation, and look at your meter and if the dial is still turning, chances are you have a leak somewhere.
