Dial Meter

How to read a Dial Meter

Your meter reading is 8419

A dial meter has a number of dials including one or two that are red, like the one above.

To read your meter, note the main numbers only from left to right.

  • Ignore any red dials.

  • Adjacent dials turn in opposite directions.

  • The number and position of dials may vary.

  • If the pointer is between two figures, always read the lowest of the 2 numbers (so if the pointer is between 5 and 6, the number you read is 5).

  • If the pointer is directly on a number, for example 7, look at the next dial to the right. If that dial on the right is between 9 and 0, you read 6 for the initial dial. If the dial on the right is between 0 and 1, you read 7 for the initial dial.
