I am not convinced of the accuracy of our water meters.
One half of my duplex had the water shut off for the entire billing period.
The water meter recorded a reduction in total consumption of less than five per cent.
Last year, for one billing period, the meter recorded a total flow equal to a 45-gallon barrel being filled every hour for 22 hours of every day for the entire 90 days.
That is a lot of water and not feasible.
I phoned the city and nobody cared.
