Default Free Water !!!!!!

WELL I WAS FARTING AROUND IN THE BASEMENT LAST NIGHT WITH A BIG MAGNET PICKING UP SOME NAILS. THEN MIS TURNED ON THE WATER UP IN THE KITCHEN, AS I LOOKED OVER AT THE METER THAT WAS SPINNING AROUND. IT HIT ME (" MAGNET ") :miff: YOUR WATER METER WORKS WITH TWO MAGNETS ONE ON THE TURBIN IN SIDE THE BOTTOM ( WHERE THE WATER IS ) AND ONE ON A LITTLE WHEEL IN THE TOP. AS THE TURBIN TURNS THE MAGNET CAUSES THE LITTLE WHEEL IN THE TOP TO TURN. SO I TOOK THAT 5LB BASTARD IN MY HAND AND SET IT ON THE SIDE OF THE METER. WITH THE BIG MAGNET HOLDING THE LITTLE WHEEL IN THE TOP THE TURBIN IS FREE TO SPIN WITH OUT READING HOW MUCH WATER IS PASSING THROUGH !!

You will notice on your meter there is a nifty little band of wire . When you cut that and pull the meter for any reason they tend to get really really pissy about it . Trust me :tonka:

You mean the hard to get a hold of consumers energy or dte blue tabs? How many do you want, I have hundreds of them.
Or if you cut the metal piece near the base of the blue plastic thing, you can wedge it back in there and make it look normal. And meter readers aren't of the caring type anyways.

The power company likes it when you do a service upgrade because that normally means you will be using more power.

my water meter is in my basement.

I have an RF transmitter that goes from the watermeter to outside my house that sends my water usage to the receiver truck that drives around quarterly.

My houses down town were just changed a couple summers ago , the meter is in the crawl space and a wire runs out side to a little counter deal that gets its info from the meter .

I had a house break a water line this winter , pricks raped me on water bill . I tried to point out that the bill is for water - sewer yet this water all went on the ground not the treatment plant . Gee they didnt see to give a shit .
