Recently my water bill had an ad for a water monitor. Apparently the
meters are read remotely by unit in a vehicle going down the
street. For a modest charge I have a device about the size of two
packs of cigs, press a button and it polls the meter using an RF
link. Fun to see how much water a load of wash takes or what is the
rate of use to water the garden. The council subsidises the price as
it can be used to motivate water conservation.
