A water meter is a device that measures the amount of water a consumer is using. Most developed countries use water meters to measure the amount of water used by a commercial or residential building. They can also be used in a well, source of water, or water system to determine the flow of water through a specific part of the system. Different types of water meters are currently being used. However, the option depends on the accuracy requirements, the required flow rates, the end-user, and the flow measurement method.

There are several ways to read a water meter, including:
- direct reading
- Remote reading, which is accomplished via an electronic signal using a wire, where anyone can read directly or touch.
- Touch read or plug-in reading that employs a handheld device that receives an electronic signal by touching a remote station or plug-in. The signal is then translated into readings that are stored in the handheld device.
- Automatic meter reading, in which the meter reader receives readings via radio transmission.
- It detects water leakage in the distribution networks
- It classifies potential well, pump or irrigation system problems
- It determines the efficiency of a water plant for water supply.
