One of the most common calls Fitzgerald Plumbing gets late in the day ‘I bumped the meter with the mower and it is leaking’ OR ‘I just ran over the water meter and it is spraying water everywhere’ (and more often they are on Friday afternoons or just as a big storm is starting!)
Any plumbing that is on your property is responsibility of the property resident. Hunter Water do not service water meters.
You can protect your above ground water meter by putting a low walled protective structure around the meter, eg. garden edging materials, pre-fabricated raised garden bed. This will protect the meter from being bumped.
Do not over plant if doing a garden bed, the meter needs to be accessible.
If you notice a leak, call Fitzgerald Plumbing. We can fix /service the meter.
