I have a new PI meter; now what?

I have a new PI meter; now what?

If you have a new meter on your pressurized irrigation (PI, also called secondary) water system, your billing will change: you will pay for the actual amount of water you use, rather than a flat rate based on the size of your lot.

But remember, this new billing does not begin until the January after your new meter is installed. During this window, your bill will show your flat rate along with what you would pay if the new metered billing was in effect.

  • If your new bill would be lower, congratulations! After the new billing takes effect your PI bill should go down.
  • If your new bill would be higher, the grace period gives you a chance to adjust your watering habits, repair your sprinkler system or redesign landscaping to bring down your water usage.

If you have questions about PI metering, please feel free to contact our office at 801-571-2232.
