Water Meters help measure the amount of water used during a period. These readings help water supply companies track user-wise consumption and maintain proper records for analysis and billing. Let’s understand a bit more about Water Meter Readings.

  • What does an inspector record in a Water Meter Reading form?
  • Why are these readings critical to consumers and supply companies?
  • Why is Fielda a preferred choice for inspectors recording Water Meter Readings?

Key Data points: Water Meter Readings show the amount of water consumed in cubic feet. One cubic foot is the equivalent of 7.48 gallons of water. Many districts use this data to bill in units of hundred cubic feet. Inspectors use the Water Meter Reading form to note details such as Meter number, the last month’s reading, the current meter reading, and the difference between the two readings. This indicates the amount of water consumed in that billing period. Usually, meter readings are taken on the 1st and 15th of each month. 

Why are these readings important: Site inspectors take Water Meter Readings regularly so that water supply companies can track water consumption for a specific customer. The readings help calculate both the total water consumed and the amount of water used in a 15 day or one-month billing cycle. Inspectors also add remarks if they find anything which needs attention, such as very high or unusually low water consumption reading. Regular and accurate Water Meter Readings are required in order to ensure that billing is accurate and that maintenance issues are flagged for immediate action. 

How does Fielda ease documenting Water Meter Readings: The typical forms used to capture Water Meter Readings are signed by two to three individuals; commonly the site inspector, the maintenance in-charge, and the chief engineer. Since these paper forms act as a detailed log for the consumer and supply company, they must be adequately maintained and available for reference. Fielda helps completely digitize the Water Meter Reading process. Inspectors can instantly record consumption readings with just a few clicks, and other stakeholders can digitally sign-off and validate the form. They can also track and resolve any issues raised without the need for physical forms moving between teams. This makes workflow seamless. The digital forms also enable accuracy and eliminate the risk of data loss or damage to physical forms.
