A water meter measures how much water you use in a given period. The water company notes the meter reading and charges you for that usage. This makes a water meter an important part of your plumbing system. Every property needs to install a water meter before water is made available.
Consumers always fear being overcharged for their water use. This fear is misplaced if you have installed a good quality water meter that calculates the consumed quantity of water accurately. At SPS Plumbers Inner West, we provide high-grade Water meter setups services and can handle the job quickly and efficiently.
