    How to read your meter

    How to read your meter

    To serve you more quickly when you consider your consumption excessive, before requesting the revision of the invoice, take a reading of your meter and show it in any of our Commercial Offices

    needle-type meter-El-Salvador

    If you have a needle-type meter

    Indicate with lines drawn from the center towards the edge of the circle, the position of the needles that are seen in the meter, taking into account their sense of rotation. 
    If your meter only has four circles, ignore in the graph of your invoice the one marked with "A" and mark the rest.
