Meter & Connection
YOUR WATER METER
When we read your meter, we record the numbers on the white background—these are whole units. The current read for this meter is 2,765 units. We subtract the prior read, taken two months ago, from the current read to calculate your water bill. Watch the video to learn more.
1 time around = 7.48 gallons = 1 cubic foot of water use
100 times around = 748 gallons = 1 unit of water use
Low Flow Indicator
This is the blue dial on the meter face (yours may be a different color).
If you are not using water anywhere on your property and the low flow indicator is moving, you may have a leak.

Annual Testing Requirement
Annual testing of backflow assemblies is required by the State of California Code of Regulations, Title 17, and Helix’s Policies and Procedures, Section 5.3.
We’ll send you a reminder notice 30 days prior to your testing due date and we’ll include a pre-filled Field Testing and Maintenance Report for your tester to complete.
Backflow prevention assembly testers must be industry certified and approved by Helix before testing in our service area.
