How to take readings of the water meter

Since then, as there were water meters in Russia,ordinary citizens have become much more to save water, and most importantly - now many people know how much you have to pay the management company or the housing department for the consumed amount of life-giving water flowing from the tap.

But some people still do not understand, and perhaps did not have time to figure out how to take readings from the water meter?

We will understand how it is done.

You will need

  • Running Water Meters
  • Receipt of payment
  • Ballpoint pen or pencil



Data on consumption of water consumption are displayedwater meter on the scoreboard. They come in two types: with a digital drum mechanism and a dial. When working with the first to look at the instrument panel, which has run a part of the flow is shown in the slot. This value and the need to write. And if you want to know how much was spent in the previous period, then simply subtract from the present (current) value of a previously recorded number, and get the result.


Copying values ​​from the device of the second type (withdial). On the panel of the counter small dials arranged in a circle. There is a large arrow that points to the numbers on the outer edge of the counter - it shows tenths of a cubic meter (one share = 100 liters). On the other dials accountable tenths of cubic meters (cu. Meter = 1000 liters), thousands and tens of thousands. At the same time pay attention to the direction of the rotating arrows.


Necessary numbers to transmit readingsare to the right, they are separated by a comma and a different color. The numbers on the left represent the proportion of cubic meters, you also need the ones that show the whole cubic meters, that is to the right (they change as the water consumption).


There are so-called remote readingreadings. For this purpose, the counter is further necessary to mount reed switch (small electromagnetic device), and the mechanical counter parts (roller cog or an arrow) - a small magnet. Magnet, at constant turnover details, passes close to the reed, which at the time the contact closes external low-voltage circuit. By counting the number of pulses (taking into account their weight), which generated a counter, you can get the volume of water. When the device is working properly, for a certain period of time (day, hour, week, month) the number of pulses will match the readings of the indicator built-in counter.
