-The meter read in question will drop off after six days. If you have automation getting new duplicate reads, then each successive new read will stay on for six days, so effectively you can have meters reported perpetually if DCA (i.e. FMAudit, PrintFleet) keeps posting in new duplicate meter reading.

Best Practices & Tips
