How to Handle Emergency Water Meter Situation

Have you ever checked if your water meter can shut down in a case of emergency situation?

In this video, we encountered an emergency situation where the water meter wouldn’t turn off.

Make sure you avoid this kind of incident.

You don’t want to encounter this kind of emergency situation

We checked whether a client’s water meter would get shut down in a case of emergency, because it’s important if there is something wrong in the house that your water meter can turn off.

They had a good hose but when we tried to shut down the water meter, it didn’t work. We found out that they had a faulty water meter tap. So we called the Water Authority to come down and sort it out for them. FREE OF CHARGE.

This is why it’s crucial to get the Plumbing Safety Report done. It’s one of the things we offer. We will check for you whether your water meter would turn off. If it wouldn’t, we’ll help you sort it out like in this video. Give us a call. We’ll be happy to help.

If you have other faults, such as:
  • Your meter is leaking
  • You can’t shut off your water
  • The glass on the meter is difficult to read or frosted
  • Obscured and unreadable dial
  • Not registering or turning
  • Noisy meter
  • Meter has been run over
  • Meter has been damaged during other gardening or maintenance work
You can contact Water Corporation to report it. After that, they will arrange for a crew member to come to your property to inspect and repair your meter and/or service. It’s a good idea to check the condition of your water meter once in a while. The last thing you want it to be stuck in an emergency situation where you can’t turn off the water. Stay safe!
