Frequently asked questions
What is an Ecoder Status
It is essentially your water meter status. Your meter records a few usage statistics that can be useful in determining problems with your water service. These statistics are referred to by the manufacturer as Ecoder Data. The statistics it keeps are: Consecutive days with zero consumption, days of intermittent leak, days of continuous leak, the severity of reverse flow events.
How do I read my meter
You must locate your physical water meter: they are typically found where the water service enters the building. You will need a flashlight or other directional light source. Shine the light on the clear plastic lens of the meter and observe the digital display. The Meter will display information in sequence, showing some information similar to a date, and then displaying the current meter reading registered in litres (for 5/8 and 3/4 meters). Litres can be converted to Cubic Meters by dividing by 1000.
