The 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 61/372 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 and must be installed horizontally with the face up.

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.
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!

I haven't installed this water meter yet, however it feels like it is built solid and professional. If it works as well as the quality being I see, I will be very happy.
Nice an quiet. Installed easy. I was surprised on how much water I used in a day.
Looks like a good fit for my needs, but the instructions were lacking. Instructions said mount horizontally, but did not say the meter should face up. I mounted it in a location that was high enough that I wanted to be able to look at it so I mounted it horizontally but facing toward me and not the sky. It did not read well at all. Show a picture or further explanation would be helpful.
RESPONSE FROM FLOWS.COM:
Thank you for your feedback! Instructions in the manual do state that it must be horizontal with the register facing up. In fact, when it is installed in any other fashion, it will not meet accuracy specifications. We have edited the product description so that others will see the installation requirement on the purchase page. We do have other meters that can have the register turned or you could also add a switch wire and a digital display that can be placed in an easier to read location. Please call if you would like to discuss. 855.871.6091
Works great. Now I know how much water is evaporating from my pool.
The meter seems well made and installed very easily.
Flows has been fantastic to order from. I had a faulty gallon calculator that got stuck on 9,999 gallons and wouldn't go any higher, so I got online to order another meter and decided to ask the Live Chat if I could fix it before ordering. They immediately shipped me a new 1 for free, no questions asked. This is my second water meter I've ordered through them and would definitely order with them again. Also, great service from the Live Chat, I believe her name was Michelle.
Work well. Wish they had a model without 4 readouts. But other than that very good.
Well made. Perfect for in-home use. Easy installation. Professional water metering.
