Reading your Meter

This is what is under the lid


The On/Off valve (blue) is shown in the OFF position

When water is being used the large red hand can be seen rotating along with the red (or black) rotor in the centre.  If they rotate constantly or when you do not think you are using water, you probably have a leak
