Using a prepaid meter allows you to save on water, which leads to saving money as you will never get an unexpected or inflated bill! Therefore, one of the big advantages of prepaid utilities is that they enable you to manage your cash flow and budget for your expenses properly.
When you receive the keys to your new home, you will also receive a client information handover pack where you will find all the necessary information regarding your prepaid water and electricity meters.
Please note that these meters are the property of your municipality. If you experience any technical problems or errors, your municipality must send a technician to replace or repair your meter.
Meter tampering is illegal and incredibly dangerous because of the risk of injury or electrocution. A meter that has been tampered with does not function as it should, leading to a loss of the information needed from it by landlords. A properly working meter is integral to recovering consumption costs and avoiding the ramifications of electricity theft.
Why is my electricity meter blank? Meters can go into sleep mode and seem to have no display. Pressing a button on the main panel should revive the screen display.
