How to read your meter

Reading your water meter can help you monitor your water usage and determine if you have a possible leak. Use the in-depth guide below in order to assist you.

 How To Read Your Water Meter


Checking for leaks

If a leak is detected, likely culprits are toilets and irrigation systems.

• Checking for toilet leaks

1. Put 3-5 drops of food coloring in the toilet tank.

2. After 1 hour, check the toilet bowl to see if colored water has escaped into it from the tank.

3. If you see colored water in the bowl, the toilet probably has a flapper leak. Replace or readjust the  flapper.

• Checking for irrigation leaks

1. Taller, greener vegetation or moss growing around the sprinkler heads are signs of a damaged or dirty valve. Clean and replace worn parts.

2. Wet spots, mud, and eroding soil may indicate a broken pipe. Dry spots in your lawn could also be a sign that a sprinkler is damaged. To locate the source of the leak, dig around the sprinkler.

3. Wet spots on pavement also indicate possible leaks. Watch your sprinklers to determine which one is showering the pavement. Turn off the water, and check the sprinkler head and riser. Sprinklers spouting geysers indicate broken sprinkler heads. Replace them.


How to obtain a leak adjustment

To obtain a leak adjustment, the customer must submit a Leak Adjustment Request. The Leak Adjustment Request form can be downloaded by clicking the link below or can be obtained from the District office. Current leak adjustment policy states the customer may receive a credit of up to 75% of the cost of the water lost due to a leak outside of the customer's control. The Leak Adjustment Request form along with receipts for repairs are to be mailed to Scotts Valley Water District, P.O. Box 660006, Scotts Valley, CA 95067-0006 or faxed to (831) 438-6235. Leak adjustment requests must be submitted no later than 30 days after the end of the billing period during which the leak was repaired. If your leak adjustment is approved, the amount awarded will be credited to your account. We do not issue cash or check refunds. Please allow one full billing cycle (60 days) for your credit to process.

Toilet and Washing Machine Rebates

Customers who replace existing water fixtures with approved low flow fixtures as per the Uniform Building Code are eligible for a credit on their water bill. We do not issue cash or check rebates and the credit is applied directly to the account where the fixture is installed. To qualify for a credit, you must submit a completed rebate application form along with a copy of the receipt showing purchase of the installed low flow fixture or fixtures. No credit will be given for labor. The District reserves the right to inspect the customer's premises for purposes of verification. Retrofit credits will be awarded in the following amounts:


(a)        Credit of up to $100 for replacing a toilet using over 1.6 gallons per flush with a High Efficiency Toilet (HET) averaging 1.28 gallons per flush or less;


(b)        Credit of up to $50 for replacing a toilet using 1.5 to 1.6 gallons per flush with a HET;


(c)        Credit of up to $50 for replacing a higher volume urinal with a High Efficiency Urinal using 0.5 gallons per flush or less;


(d)        Credit of up to $100 for replacing a water-using urinal with a waterless urinal;


(e)        Credit of up to $100 for installing an approved H-axial washing machine in a residential application to replace a washing machine that does not meet this approval standard;


(f)         Credit of up to $200 for installing an approved H-axial washing machine in a commercial application to replace a washing machine that does not meet this approval standard.  Commercial application is herein defined to mean any washing machine that is coin operated and is intended to serve more than one family, residential structure or premise.


The City of Scotts Valley is offering an additional rebate of up to $100 if the cost of your new HET exceeds $100.  To qualify you must be approved for the Scotts Valley Water District retrofit credit first and connected to the City sewer system.


Credit is available for more than one fixture per residence or business.  There is no limit on the number of rebates.  If you replace two toilets then you are eligible for a credit of up to $200, 3 toilets - $300, 4 toilets - $400, etc.
