Tag: water meters

In many developed countries water meters are used to measure the volume of water used by residential and commercial building that are supplied with water by a public water supply system. Water meters can also be used at the water source, well, or throughout a water system to determine flow through a particular portion of the system. In most of the world water meters measure flow in cubic metres (m3) or litres but in the USA and some other countries water meters are calibrated in cubic feet (ft.3) or US gallons on a mechanical or electronic register. Some electronic meter registers can display rate-of-flow in addition to total usage.

The Art of Leak Detection and the Arithmetic of Audits

According to EPA, public systems face numerous challenges, including aging infrastructure, increasing regulatory requirements, water quantity and water concerns, and inadequate resources. These challenges are amplified through changes in population and climate. It is estimated that the US will need to spend upwards of $200 billion on water systems in

Crime Stopper: Water Meters and Magnets

How do you protect your meter network from losing its measuring capability? One option to improve and protect measure devices like dry-dial water meters is to use passive magnetic field indicators to detect the action of a strong magnetic field primarily coming from neodymium magnets.

Say “No” to Non-Revenue Water

If water utilities were charities, they would be expected to give their water away for free, and if water wasn’t so difficult and expensive to process in the first place to make sure it is safe for human consumption, then it wouldn’t matter if millions of gallons “disappeared” from the

Other Utility Meters Subject to Magnetic Field Influence

In the final installment of this three-part series, authors Adam Kozlowski and Janusz Dubicki reference other utility markets that are similarly subjected to possible magnetic field influence and metering inaccuracies. (Commercial and residential water meters launched this series on magnetic field impacts on metering results.) Part 3 below concludes this
