Why Does My Water Meter Need Servicing?

Usually, residents and workers will see that their water meter will contain damages at random times. That is to say, most people will see problems with their water meter when:
Sudden changes in water pressure – when this occurs water meters tend to falter and not function properly, usually because the meter is not built for the random spikes. This can cause internal damage or alter the readings of the water meter.

Age: As with most things, when your water meter is becoming old, it may have more issues. As a result of age, the accurate readings of the meter can become altered. Therefore, these numbers could increase or decrease the amount of water you used is sent to the water companies. This will mess with both your bills and the companies, too.

Air Flows:  If water meters experience air being pushed into the meter it will still count it as water consumption. This is because the meter does not differentiate between air and water. So, your water bill will be higher as your water meter has been thinking that you have been using more water.

These are the more common issues regarding water meters. However, there are still a lot more problems and factors which can alter the pricing and functionality of your water meter. Replacing, repairing or installing water meters can differ in price depending on who you source. There are multiple factors involved in water metering repairs, therefore, research is highly encouraged beforehand.

Who is responsible for maintaining the health of a water meter?

If you see that your water meter is not correctly functioning, it is responsible that you call either Sydney Water or a licenced plumber to resolve the issues. However, as landowners are responsible for all fittings and pipes on their land, Sydney Water is ultimately responsible for water meter maintenance. An additional point is that if you share a private joint water service with someone else, you still have to maintain the pipes. Moreover, you will need to split the costs between whoever you share the water meter with.

More importantly, calling Sydney Water and waiting for their services can take a while. That is why hiring a trusted plumber can quicken up the process by a lot. With this, furthermore, the location of the water meter is important for when servicing is required. This is because it should be placed/located in a safe and easily accessible location. Behind locked gates, near dogs, under dirt/ concrete or even within trees and plants are places which are not advised. These only slow the whole process of identifying and placing a solution on the dilema.
