:008 Read your water meter

Suggested Review – :001, :002, :007

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:008 Tip: Your 1:5:10 goal for today is to locate your water meter and learn to read it. This is the first step towards identifying if you have hidden water leaks. There are a number of styles of meters that are read in different ways which will be explained under “Additional Information”.
