HOW TO SELECT AND INSTALL WATER METERS
In-line meters start at around $80 for ¾” plastic paddle-wheel models.
Prices increase with pipe size , if meters need to be installed on non-copper pipes, or if special connections are required (such as tri-clamps).
In-line meters can be purchased on-line from water meter suppliers, or through local plumbers. Utilizing Canadian suppliers can save on shipping, handling, and duty costs.
Meters that automatically transmit data are also available at additional cost.
For all meters installed in potable water lines, it is important to ensure the meters are safe for drinking water use. This can be verified by ensuring meters are certified to NSF/ANSI 61 (general contaminants) and/or NSF/ANSI 372 (lead free).
