Hi there, Rhyse from Plumbdog!
I’m just going to put a small video together and have a little chat about water meters and some of the unnecessary difficulties some plumbers go through when attending a property, where a client doesn’t happen to know where the water meter is.
What a water meter shouldn’t look like is this. The water meter should be visible and readily accessible so that in case of an emergency, it can be found and isolated. And obviously, if you call one of us out to do some work and we need to shut it off so we can do some work, that work can be done.
Just another friendly tip (we’re going next door here), generally speaking, wherever the hose tap is, the water meter will be in line with the hose tap. As we can see there’s another one here, almost camouflaged, but at least it’s not buried. But then if we go back over here, we’ll see that this scenario is a little bit different because we have the water meter on the right-hand side of the property but in this case, the hose tap is on the left-hand side. So that doesn’t always fare.
It’s always a good idea to know where your water meter is and have it readily accessible.
