Water meter testing | Redland City Council

Water meter testing

All meters installed in Redlands are manufactured in accordance with Australian Standards and tested in accordance with the National Measurement Institute.

As meters age they can slow and under read. As part of Council’s commitment to fair and equitable billing we may replace our 20mm domestic meters every 8 – 10 years.

If you would like your water meter tested, Council will provide a quote prior to the test occurring. If a meter test results in an accuracy outside of +5% the meter testing, the fee will be refunded by Council. Should the meter accuracy read below +5%, the fee will remain.

Independent test

Council will remove the water meter and send it to an independent fully accredited testing authority to undertake a six-point strip test to AS3565.1-2010. A quote will be provided.
