Sensus IPERL Water Meter – The Sensus meters have a digital display. To read your water meter, open the hinged lid on the top of the meter. The number that first appears on the display is your meter reading. By closing the hinged lid and reopening the door, the meter will display current gallons per minute. To detect a leak, simply pay attention to the last two digits on the meter. These meters read down to a 1/100 of a gallon, so by watching the digits to the right of the decimal point, you can easily determine small flows of water.

The IPERL meter uses a radio signal for our meter reading system. Therefore, the meter is read directly without the need for a remote (outside) register. 
Sensus meter (analog) – The leak detection dial is the round red dial below the meter reading. One turn of the red dial is equivalent to 1 gallon. If this red dial is rotating, water is being used. 

In many installations, this meter is read using a wired system that sends a signal to a remote register (pictured below). If you have a remote register, you should check to make sure the remote reads the same as the meter. If the readings are different, call Borough Hall for assistance. We can change out the meter and install a new IPERL water meter. There is no charge to the customer for a new meter but you might be responsible for the unbilled water that is recorded by the old meter. 

Heading 3

The older water meter systems used an analog or manual register. The meter readers need to manually enter this number into the reading system. The register needs to match the inside meter. 

Please call Borough Hall if you require assistance in checking the readings or locating your register and meter. You can contact Borough Hall by calling (215) 679-5194, ext 1, or by email at info@egreenville.org.

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS 

On average, each American uses 60 gallons of water every day. You can reduce your water use by as much as 30% if you are efficient. 

 
CHECK YOUR TOILETS FOR HIDDEN LEAKS. TANK TO BOWL LEAKS CAN WASTE ABOUT A QUART OF WATER WITH EACH FLUSH. PLACE A FEW DROPS OF FOOD COLORING IN THE TANK. WAIT AN HOUR TO SEE IF THE COLOR APPEARS IN THE BOWL. IF IT DOES, YOU HAVE A LEAK. YOU SHOULD MAKE THE NECESSARY REPAIRS IMMEDIATELY. 

TURN OFF THE TAP WATER WHILE YOU SHAVE OR BRUSH YOUR TEETH. 

TAKE SHORTER SHOWERS. LIMIT SHOWERS TO FIVE MINUTES, INSTALL A LOW-FLOW SHOWER HEAD AND TURN OFF THE WATER TO SOAP UP. 

IF YOU HAVE A WATER SOFTENER, CHECK IT TO MAKE SURE IT IS FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. 

To reduce water use if you don't have a low-flow toilet, place a plastic bottle filled with water and pebbles in the tank to displace water. Don't obstruct the float! Don't use bricks.
