Always read the meter dials from the right to the left. This procedure is much easier,especially if any of the dial hands are near the zero mark. If the meter has two dials, andone is smaller than the other, it is not imperative to read the smaller dial since it onlyregisters a small amount. Read the dial at the right first. As the dial turns clockwise,always record the figure the pointer has just passed. Read the next dial to the left andrecord the figure it has just passed. Continue recording the figures on the dials from rightto left. When finished, mark off the number of units recorded. Dials on water and gasmeters usually indicate the amount each dial records.
