My water meter is damaged
Your property's water meter is essential for us to accurately measure and charge for your water use.

Damaged water meter and water meter frame
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).
If the water meter only, shows physical signs of damage
Please contact us if you can see physical signs of damage on the water meter.
This may include
- cloudy or smashed glass on the meter face
- water spurting or leaking from the glass
- you are unable to see/read the water meter dials and numbers on the meter face
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.
You may occasionally need to turn off your path tap at the water meter to stop the flow of water into your property.
There are some reasons for additional water use that you can monitor or fix.
