The meter data display looks similar to the numbers on a car odometer and has nine digits. The digits on the meter represent the number of gallons consumed down to the one one-hundredth of a gallon. The last two digits after the decimal can be used as leak indicators to detect continuous water flow through the meter.
Unlike old analog water meters, the new Sensus meters do not have a "Star" in the center to indicate a leak. As reflected in the picture, the new meters have two digits to the right of the decimal. The furthermost digit indicates hundredths of gallons and is considered to be the leak indicator. If the last digit is moving, then water is flowing. Low flow would be indicated by this digit moving slowly when all valves are closed in the irrigation system and the residence.
Customers can also see how much water is used each hour, each day or each month on the customer portal. Usage alerts can also be set by customers who access the customer portal.
