Checking the water meter


#1

A couple months ago, I got a huge bill from the water company. Turns out that a toilet that we rarely use was leaking internally, running up the bill. It had been doing this for almost a full month.

So I made myself a reminder to check the little spinning indicator on the water meter once a week to make sure it wasn’t moving when it shouldn’t be. Problem is, the meter is kind of hard to get to, in a dark area behind a panel.

Solution: stick a Wyze Cam in there. Now I can check it easily anytime I want.

Great idea!

Nice! Our well pump did the same thing one time. Rose the bill $200.

After a plumbing leak I added a water meter to our well pump so I could point a Wyze Pan at it. Now I can see any water use anytime I want.

How’d you get power there

It is next to an outlet in my workshop. In fact my 3 Pan’s are on the same outlet and power cycle for a minute each night.
