(A)   The utility will make an effort to read meters monthly and such reading shall be prima facie evidence of the amount of water used. If the utility is unable to gain access to a customer’s property, the customer shall be billed an estimated charge based on the average of previous meter readings. The first billing made after the meter is read shall be adjusted according to the meter reading.
   (B)   No more than three consecutive estimated billings will be allowed; after that, the customer may be required to have a radio meter installed.
