Being on a meter does teach you some harsh lessons about domestic maintenance.

It was only after receiving an unusually high bill that we realised the seal on the toilet flush mechanism had deteriorated so there had been a constant trickle from cistern to bowl for some months.

I had one of those.  I thought it was tinnitus.

This is why I'd like a meter.  With a pulse output for RRDtool goodness.

Ours was not a significant enough trickle to register audibly. Unfortunately it was significant enough to register on the meter.
