Cover your water meter this winter

28 May 2018

As the colder weather sets in, Western Water is asking customers in frost-prone areas to cover their water meters.

When a meter freezes, no water will pass through the meter until it thaws, leaving households without hot water on a frosty morning.

To keep your water running, we recommend you cover your meter with:

  • a large bucket
  • cardboard
  • a hessian bag
  • half a tyre, or:
  • an old blanket.
