HOW TO READ A METER

How to Read Badger's Recordall Water Meter Registers



The standard local or encoder (RTRŪ) register consists of a straight-reading
Odometer-type totalization display, 360° test circle with center sweep hand
and flow finder to detect leaks. Flow finders are color coded to define the unit
of measure.

Red = Gallons, Blue = Cubic Feet, & Black = Cubic Meters.

The test circle is divided into tenths and hundredths, and it takes a complete
revolution of the sweep hand or pointer to indicate the first rolling digit at the
right-of the number wheel stack. The test circle is only used for testing
purposes. The test circle will vary depending on meter size.

On all registers there only six live number wheels; the rest of the numbers are
painted on the dial. Number wheel colors will be determined by the units of
measure (i.e. gallons, cubic feet, and cubic meters) and by test circle size.

The following will display the various test circles, meter sizes, units of
measure and the standard utility meter reading.


Utility & Billing Standards for Meter Reading

All registers are designed with white and black
number wheels for readability. The white number
wheels correspond to the "typical" utility standard
meter reading.
