If the meter inside is covered by silt, sand or surface water, uncover and open the small metal lid on top of the meter.
Clean off meter glass so you can see dial clearly.
After recording your reading, make sure all water is turned off both inside and outside the house.
Look very carefully at the red pointer to see if it is moving. If the pointer is moving, you may have a leak.

By learning to read your OUC meters, you can take control of how much energy and water your household uses each month. Simply by taking periodic readings, you can see when your personal “peak” usage may be and what appliances or applications may use more electricity or water than you think.
Depending on where you live, you may have a different style of meter. Units with digital displays make taking a reading simple — just copy the number as it reads on the meter. If your meter has dials, see inside for instructions on how to take an accurate reading.
Read your meters at the same time each day, preferably once a week. Keep track of the KWH or gallons used and compare it your previous readings to determine how it fluctuates depending on how your household uses water or appliances
To determine your electric or water costs over a day, week or month, take two readings over a period of time and use the formulas below. Click here to find your current OUC water and electric rates.
Please note that your rates will differ depending on how much energy or water you used (also known as “tiered rates”), who your utility provider is for each service, and where in Central Florida you live.
