You will need
- In order to take readings from the metering devices of the consumption of the resources you will need:
- -a pen or pencil;
- -a sheet of paper.
For example, if the energy consumption the last digit on the right is in no way allocated (for example, separated by a comma or surrounded by a color), the figures are written entirely in kilowatt-hours. If the last digit highlighted in any way, then it reflects even tenths of kilowatt-hours. In this case, when removing the meter but this number will not be charged. To pay for electricity every month correctly, you need to keep records, i.e. record from last month, and then the next. From the resulting value, you must take away that which remained in the last month, and then get the amount of electricity that was spent for the current period.
With the help of water meter can even determine if the apartment leaks. And make it simple. When the valve is closed in the apartment, the arrow of the meter should remain stationary. To remove the indications from the metering devices of water consumption is also quite simple.
If the counter with a digital drum gauge, the readings from it quite straightforward. Only need to write down the numbers that appear in the slots of the drum. And then in the same way as in the case of the counter of electricity, we need to take away from past performance the resulting. This will be the water consumption for a certain period of time.
If the water meter dial, it is necessary to carefully examine his testimony. A big arrow on it indicates tenths of a cubic meter (one-tenth is equal to 100 liters). A little "responsible" for whole cubic meters (one cubic meter equals 1000 liters). Accordingly, the inscriptions on the dial and calculated the percentages.
With readings from the meter with the dial, you need to pay attention to the direction of rotation arrows. For payment is accepted only traveled by the arrow.
