Strangely it seems they only do a few house on a street at a time and not the whole street in one go, my guess is if a large number of people on a street started complaining of those symptoms of dizziness sleep disruption etc the residents could more easily identify the cause. which would not be good for Southernwater.

i know for a fact these meters disrupt my sleep whenever i stay in my relatives house, since the installation of the meter i rarely get more than 2 hours sleep before waking up for absolutely no reason. im worried what the long term effect is having on their young children.

foil will reduce the signal strength but if your neighbor has a meter its pretty pointless.

this is the water meter Southernwater is using Arad is an Israeli based company.

heres the 'smart' water meter propaganda:

Interesting, in the implementation docs it's mentioned over and over that it will be an electricity smart meter that will have water measurement added to it.

If they are installing smart meters for water then perhaps it can have the electricity combined with it at a later date also? another way to hook you by subterfuge.

Does this water smart meter in anyway resemble the electricity one?. If so, I think we need to know about this.
