1. Find notification number

  • The notification number can be found in your invitation (email or letter).
  • You receive a new notification number every year.
  • The number always contains 10 digits.

Did you receive an invitation per email? Then click on the button in the email to pass on the meter reading. You do not have to fill in a notification number. It's that easy!


2. Find the water meter

The location of the water meter is different in every house. The water meter is a round, plastic box. Many water meters have a flap that you first have to lift to see the meter reading.

  • The water meter is usually located in the meter closet. Or next to your boiler.
  • In some homes, the water meter is in the toilet, bathroom, or kitchen.
  • Still haven't found it? Look under the hatch at your front door or back door.


3. Reading the water meter

Reading your water meter works like this:

  • Copy the figures on the black surface of your water meter. Including zeros (0).
  • Most water meters have 5 digits in the black fields. Some water meters have 4 digits in the black fields.
  • You do not have to pass on the digits in the red fields.

Tip: Is the water meter located in the dark? Take a picture of the meter reading with your phone and use the flash or flashlight function.

A meter with 5 digits on a black background is shown above.

A meter with 4 digits on a black background is shown on above.

Does your meter only have 4 fields? Set a '0' before your meter reading so that you can enter 5 digits. '0455' becomes '00455', for instance.
