Is it possible for water meters to be read incorrectly?
With a water meter, a household, office or industry pays for the water it actually uses instead of paying a fixed charge unrelated to use.
Most homes in Europe and North America have water meters but in England and Wales, although almost all new homes are installed with water meters, currently not all homes are metered. This is generally higher in areas of water stress, for example, the Anglian water company region meters about half of its domestic customers.
Offices and industry are usually metered. The Environmental Agency long-term strategy for water resources in England and Wales is that 50 to 75% of households should be metered by 2025.
The advantage of metering is that it tends to reduce demand as it raises awareness and encourages consumers to consider and value their use of water. In the long term, it has led to changes in attitude to water, so that more people are choosing devices that are water efficient.
This encourages manufacturers to make and advertise water-efficient household appliances, such as WC cisterns, washing machines and dishwashers.
The disadvantages are the cost of metering and a concern about health. It costs money to install a meter in every household and this becomes an enormous investment across the country.
There is also a concern on health grounds that some households will sacrifice cleanliness in order to economise.
