We are not responsible for any damage to your water service that has not been caused by us.

You will need to seek assistance from a Licensed Plumber if your water meter frame has structural damage/accidental/negligent damage (e.g. the meter has been dented, the water meter frame ran over, has been bent or slashed by a mower or whipper snipper).

Has your damaged water meter been fixed?

After your plumber has repaired your water service and affixed a spacer on the frame, you or the plumber will be required to complete our online services connection and disconnection application.

If the water meter only, shows physical signs of damage

  • water spurting or leaking from the glass

We will will come and take a look at the water meter and if required, we will replace the water meter as soon as possible to maintain continued service.
