Water Meter Setups

Water Meter Setups

The water meter is one of the most important aspects of your plumbing system because it measures just how much water you use. The water company will then take the water meter reading and charge you accordingly. Needless to say, every property needs one. Efficient water meters will calculate the amount you consume accurately so you don’t have to worry about being overcharged. At SPS Plumbers, we can install a whole water meter setup quickly and efficiently.

What You Need to Know About Meters

You probably don’t realize it but you have an option to choose between different types of meters. These meters can vary in price and functionality so you should choose one based on your needs. Water companies will provide standard meters to you during the plumbing installation. Our plumber can install those for you or help you choose an upgrade.

Each has their advantages and disadvantages and our plumber can explain this to you in more detail. Water meters also require regular maintenance to function properly. They’re considered your responsibility so if they stop working or give a faulty reading due a lack of maintenance, you won’t have any other option but to replace them.

Installing Water Meters

We usually follow company guidelines when it comes to water meter setups. This ensures that the system is according to the standards set by the water company and it doesn’t have any flaws. Here’s what we usually do:

  • We position it within 1 metre of the boundary wall of your property where your home’s plumbing system meets the mains.
  • Our plumbers will make sure that the meters are fitted at the right angles with the mains.
  • The meter will be supported by at least 150mm of ground clearance. We don’t place it higher than 300mm.
  • We ensure the meter is easily accessible to contactors and water company employees whenever needed.
  • We will also explain the entire maintenance procedure to you to help you maintain the water meter well.
