Using Google Earth to measure water use in your house has never been easier.
We’ll walk through the steps necessary to get started and show you how to configure Google Earth for your area.
The easiest way to learn more about Google Earth is to take a look at the video tutorials on the site.
The steps:Open the Google Earth app from the Home screen Tap on the “Map” icon in the upper-right corner Tap on “Water” in the top right corner Tap “Flow” in your left-hand menu Tap “Modern” in that menu.
You’ll see a list of options.
Choose “Modern Meters.”
Then tap on “Flow Water.”
You’ll get a list with three options: “Modern Flow Meter” or “Modern Water Meter.”
Pick the one that looks like the image below:In the first image, you can see how you can set up your meter to be based on the flow of the water in the meter.
To get a feel for how to use the meter, here’s a quick video that shows you how: When you’re done, tap “Save Meters” to save the settings and exit the app.
We’ll use the Modern Flow Meter in the example above to monitor the flow in our home.
Now, let’s configure Google for the rest of our house.
Step 1: Setup Google to monitor our houseWe’ll start by opening up the Google map app and then tapping the “Google” button in the lower-right.
We’re going to select “Modern Meter” as our Modern Meter.
We can choose the one in the image above, which looks like this:Now that you’ve got your Modern Meter set up, you’ll need to choose where you want Google Earth (the app) to monitor.
To do this, select the “Modern meters” icon at the bottom of the screen.
From here, tap on the small “Add Meters To Grid” button to add the meter in your area (for example, to your front door).
This is where you’ll also need to select where you’d like Google Earth’s current location to be.
To add a meter, simply tap on it in your list of available meters.
Once you’ve selected a meter and its location, you’re ready to set it up.
Step 2: Setup a Google Earth “Flow Meter” to monitor my houseWe’re going in the opposite direction from the example image above.
To start, tap the “Flow meter” icon and choose the option in the same area.
In the “Meters” area, select “Flow meters.”
Tap on “Modern meter” in this area to begin the setup process.
Now, you have two options for setting up Google Earth.
You can choose either the “Basic” flow meter or the “Advanced” flow meters.
The basic flow meter uses a small green meter to indicate how much water is in the system.
The advanced flow meter has a small red meter to tell you how much you’re getting from the system, as well as the time it takes for the water to reach the meter’s “top.”
You can find out how to choose between the two options in our guide to how to adjust Google Earth settings.
Once you’ve set up Google for your house, you need to set up a flow meter for the “front door.”
This is the one you’ll use for measuring the water level in your home.
Tap the “Front Door” button from the Google meter list and select the option you just added.
Once the meter is selected, you should see a green line at the top of the meter and an arrow at the lower left of the page.
Tap this arrow to “set” the meter (or to “Set Meters”).
You’ll then see the meter take a measurement of your front yard.
Tap on this meter and you’ll see the “flow meter” showing a flow in the home.

Step 3: Use Google to check the water meter for leaksWe’re almost ready to get to the fun stuff!
Tap the button to “Get Started.”
This will open a pop-up that will ask you to configure your Google account.
To do that, you simply tap “Set Meter” and enter the meter you want to set.
Now that you have a meter set up in your neighborhood, you will want to check it out to see if there’s any leaks in the water.
The next step is to set a flow to your yard.
You do this by selecting the “Flood meter” option from the drop-down menu.
This will show a blue bar on the top-right side of your screen with a line in the center that indicates how much of the yard is at a given point in time.
The bar will be
