By keeping the maintenance up on your plumbing fixtures and fittings it can save you a lot of money with reduced risk of wasting water or power, which as we all know is getting even more expensive.

By locating your water meter usually at the front of the property, clearing the meter and checking the water usage you can make sure there are no nasty surprises when it comes to the rates bill. Also, it is very handy to know where you can shut off the water should there be any leaks that need to be shut down straight away.

If you have any issues locating your meter you can contact your local council for the location that they will have on record.
