Product Description

 

reading-dials.pngThe WM-PC Series economy plastic water meter is excellent for residential water metering.  It uses the multi-jet principle to measure flow totals.  The gear train drives the register totalizer dials.  In addition, a pulse 
output is an option when you want to send the data to a remote location.  The 1/2", 3/4" and 1" meters come set with 1 Pulse/Gallon (3/4" Cubic Feet set for 1 pulse/cubic ft) and the 1 1/2" meters come set with 1 Pulse/10 Gallons.  This water meter is BPA free and NOW ARE NSF 61 CERTIFIED to meet lead free regulations.  They are also designed to meet the AWWA C708 Standards. 

These meters are frequently used as a low cost solution for residential water measuring. This product is the rare example of when inexpensive doesn't equal "cheap"!  It's one of the least expensive water meters on the market and ideal applications would be using the WM-PC as a Sewer Deduct Meter or Summer Meter to monitor water that is used outdoors and never passes through to the sewer system.  Many municipalities will allow home owners to deduct their outdoor water use from their sewer bill.

All meters come with plastic fittings. 

*NOTE - Bulk discounts for basic meter only. Not applicable to add-on items like garden hose adapters

  Installation Notes: 

Once the adapter ends are installed on the upstream and downstream pipes, the meter is installed by tightening the collar nuts onto the inlet and outlet of the meter. These "true-union" fittings then allow the meter to be easily rotated to the proper orientation (face up), or removed for cleaning, repair, or replacement.

IMPORTANT! 
These meter threads look practically identical to the NPT adapter threads BUT THEY ARE NOT!
Trying to install the meter without the adapter will damage the pipe's threads, the meter's threads, or BOTH!

  1. It has been working as expected for almost a year now 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2017

    I have been using it to control de water consumption at home, using the pulse sensor. I t has been installed for almost a year now without any problem. I hope it continues like this for some more years.


  2. Worked Perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2017

    Worked just as promised. Seemed accurate at variable rates. Very cost effective product.


  3. great meter for the price 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2016

    We have installed these for 60 apartments
    and they do a good job of passing the water costs on to the tenants. They have also helped to identify some water leaks we were not aware of.


  4. I'm Very Impressed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2016

    Great product, super fast shipping, stellar customer service. I messed up the two adapter gaskets and CS agent Walter sent me two same day I called. I highly recommend Flows Inc.


  5. Eye opener! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2016

    Put this meter on a rental house that's on a well. MAN!!! did I get a surprise! Water consumption was astronomical! Leak under house and toilet float not set properly. Wish I had installed this Years ago!


  6. GREAT COMPANY! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2016

    We had an issue with our 1" meter. The response from FLOWS.COM was none expectantly Fast!! Their response time was excellent. Thank you for your service.

    You are definitely on our "A" list of suppliers.

    Thanks again for helping us out of a difficult situation.


  7. Effective. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    They work and are cost effective. Insist in the brass fittings option. The plastic threads, while effective and can work for light and flexible piping situations, are too fragile. Stress (which is applied by tightening the various threads) will cause the plastic threads to split.

    Good and timely customer service.

    Considerations:
    - include brass fittings as standard
    - include excell spreadsheets for most common use cases
    - explore options for vertical installation

    Purchased four to submeter small apartment building. Planning on doing this again for another investment property.


  8. Info at my Fingertips 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2016

    We have had an issue understanding water usage at our residence. We have a commercial organic garden supplying some 75 families with produce on a weekly basis. we have tried to get a handle on residence vs garden usage. We installed the WM-PC flow meter and 'instantly" were able to understand usage. Easy to install, Read, Understand and will help in determining usage profiles for years to come.

    Thanks

  9. Good product for water management 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2016

    The meter actually was delivered before our expected date. The meter it's self was calibrated in gallons, easily understood by our customers. There is a greater number difference in before/ after readings when using gallons and this makes it easier to show the spread to an HOA. 5 stars if this did come in HCF/ CCF.


  10. just installed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2015
