Ive only had one kind of meter ever.
Whats puzzling is that
1- The DEP told me that the meters are 100% accurate. The use recorded by the meters is never anything but water use IN the house. If a meter breaks, it would stop working altogether. If the meter works, its accurately calculating the house’s use.
2- A plumber told me thats not true. Construction/Reapairs involving the sewer, done outside the house, can raise the water use calculated by the meter, even if it has nothing to do with use in the house.
Someone is wrong!
