I noticed the dial on the water meter was barely turning when the valve was completely shut off. I didn't think that much of it but the next day when I read the meter it had increased one whole number in 24 hours with it having been completely off. Not sure if that is 10 gallons per digit or 100 gallons. Either way that can add up in 1 month. Tomorrow (Monday) I plan to call the city. The valve handle is completely rusted off just about to where it's only a nub. My hand is moist when turning the valve so I imagine all the corrosion made the valve leak.
However, from my understanding, any leak that causes the dial to turn, I understand it to be the customer's responsibility since anything after it is considered on our side of the meter.
Does anyone know for sure if a valve leak on the city meter is the city's responsibility or the customers?
