This alert identifies equipment where VarW # of sequential meter reads are identical (same meter reading entered more than W # of times). It looks only at Valid and Billable meters. You can exclude certain meters by Category using VariableX.
We discourage use of this alert because it's so hard to dial in to reads worth reviewing. We generally recommend ID550 instead for a broader view, or ID556 for a list of reads that are likely to be worth reviewing (because it reports only BIlled reads).
(See ID556 to check only Billed meters.)
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 or similar keeps posting in new duplicate data.
