Electronic Meter Reading
The City of Pompano Beach now uses electronic meter
reading. This means we no longer send a meter reader to
read your water meter, but read it remotely by means of
radio transmission. This new technology ensures accuracy
and captures a more detailed history of your monthly
usage. In order for your meter to transmit accurate
readings, the area around and over the meter box must be
kept clear. Please be careful to not allow grass and
landscaping to overgrow your water meter box. The City
of Pompano Beach appreciates your help.

Outdoor Water Saving Ideas
The single largest controllable use of water is irrigation.
It has been determined that the most efficient time to water your landscaping is after 5:00 p.m. and before 9:00 a.m.
To foster the efficient use of water the City has a formal ordinance that authorizes the issuance of a fine for violators.
Please note that everyone's landscaping is different, as such one should monitor the condition of the vegetation when making changes to watering patterns. The following are general guidelines that will assist in minimizing the amount of water used to irrigate your lawn.
- Use an automatic sprinkler timer (timers do not forget to turn the sprinklers off).
- In general, sprinklers should run for 15 to 20 minutes per zone.
- Retrofit your old sprinkler timer with a rain cup. This device will prevent your sprinkler system from coming on when it is raining. All new systems are required to have one!
- Xeriscape your property. The use of indigenous plants that can flourish with little or no additional will not only help preserve the natural beauty of Pompano Beach, but will save you money on your water bill. The South Florida Water Management District has free publications including information on xeriscaping.
- Check your sprinkler system on a regular basis for loose, broken, or missing sprinkler heads. Use the right heads. Either use empty tuna cans to measure how much water various parts of your lawn receives, or simply walk through the lawn to make sure the entire lawn is being watered. Do not waste water by having sprinkler heads spray on fences or driveways.
- The South Florida Water Management District offers several free pamphlets.
Indoor Water Savings Ideas
- To check for leaks in your plumbing system simply take a meter reading, do not use any water for one hour and take a second meter reading. If the reading has changed you, have a leak.
- Retrofit all faucets with aerators that contain a flow restrictor.
- Use appropriate load setting on your washing machine. For example washing just one or two items with a load size of "jumbo" use more water than necessary to clean the clothes.
- Fill your dishwasher before doing a wash. Unlike the washing machine, the dishwasher uses the same amount of water regardless of the number of items to be cleaned.
- Install low flow showerheads. Modern low-flow heads are efficient and unlike older low flow models, they have a higher customer satisfaction level. Don't thaw items by using running water, either defrost the item overnight on the refrigerator, or use a microwave oven.
- A leaking toilet in your home can waste thousands of gallons a month. Leaking fill valves and flush valves (flappers) are the most common causes of toilet leaks. Remember that fixing leaks saves you money not only on your water charges, but can also save on your sewer charges.
How To Find A Water Leak In Your House
Hot Water Tanks
Check the pressure relief valve on the hot water tank. Sometimes these valves are plumbed directly into a drain and may be leaking without your knowledge. If you can't remove the drain pipe to check for a leak listen for a hissing sound, it may be leaking.
Check the toilet for leaks by removing the top off the tank and listening very closely. If you hear any hissing at all, try to locate where it's coming from. If you locate the area where the leak is coming from, assess it and determine if you can fix it. If you can't, then call a plumber. If nothing is noticeable, add some food coloring and put a couple of drops in the tank (not the bowl). Wait several minutes and if you have coloring in the bowl, you have a leak in the flapper at the bottom of the tank that is allowing water to seep through. At this point you can assess if you want to do the repair yourself, or call a plumber.
If you have more toilets, go ahead and repeat the process with each toilet to make sure you don't have more than one problem.
See this video for more help.
If the toilets are fine, check the line running from the meter to the house. While this may sound difficult you can save money if you can locate the leak for the plumber.
If you know you have a shut-off valve by the house, shut it off temporarily and check the meter by removing the lid and watching the flow rate. If it shows no flow than the problem is after the shut-off valve, if it still shows flow then the problem is between the meter and the shut-off valve, most likely underground. At this point, walk the area between the meter and the shut-off valve. Look for signs of a leak such as: soft muddy areas, grass that is greener than the rest or growing much faster than other areas. If you see such an obvious sign, call the plumber or assess if you can make the repair yourself.
Check all hose bibs, inside and outside to see if any are leaking.
Run the system through all the zones to check if any heads have low pressure. This could indicate where you might have a break in the line. Also make sure all heads are intact and not missing. Check the timer settings. Add the amount of time the system is set to run for all the zones. Watering is mandated to twice a week.
Pools or fountains
Make sure drain plugs in fountains or small ponds are secure and not open. Make sure your pool has no leaks that require refilling of the water.
