Frequently Asked Questions


There are two types of residential water meters in the Region of Peel.

A water meter with two black digits in the odometer measures the amount of water supplied to the nearest hundredth of a cubic metre. Every 0.01 cubic metre (10 litres) of water supplied causes the sweep hand to make one complete rotation on the dial face and the meter reading to increase by 0.01 cubic metre. Every complete rotation of the sweep hand represents 10 litres of water supplied. The dial face measures water supplied to a finer degree so that when the sweep hand moves from 0.001 to 0.002, one litre of water is supplied to your premise.

Water Meter - Two Black Digits type

A water meter with one black digit in the odometer measures the amount of water supplied to the nearest tenth of a cubic metre. Every 0.1 cubic metre (100 litres) of water supplied causes the sweep hand to make one complete rotation on the dial face and the meter reading (the black wheel) to increase by 0.1 cubic metre. Every complete rotation of the sweep hand represents 100 litres of water supplied. The dial face is graduated to a finer degree so that when the sweep hand moves from 0.01 to 0.02, ten litres of water is supplied to your premise.

Water Meter - One Black Digit type
