This Water Meter Reading Home Record is designed for residents who already know how
to read their water meter. If you don’t know how to read your water meter, please visit our
website for instructions.
Below is an example illustrating how to use your Water Meter Reading Home Record to get
the most out of your regular meter readings. There are only three minor calculations
required after you have read your water meter and used your calender to count the number
of days between readings.
Step 1: MINUS
the previous Water Meter Reading from the current Water Meter Reading.
Step 2: DIVIDE
the Water Consumed (kl) by the Days Between Readings.
Step 3: MULTIPLY
the Average Daily Water Consumption (kl/day) by 1000 to convert
your water usage into litres per day.
738 = 58
93 = 0.6237
1000 = 623.7
(kl / day)
(litres / day)
N.B. 1 kl = 1,000 litres
On Page 2 is the blank table ready for you to start filling in with your regular meter readings.
There are a few important points to note before you get started:
As in the example above, the line for your first reading will be relatively empty. Only after
your second reading will you be able to start calculating the water consumption at your
Probably the most useful figure for monitoring your water usage is the Average Daily
Water Consumption in litres per day.
You will need to have at least three decimal places in the Average Daily Water
Consumption (kl/day) column to allow for conversion into litres per day.
