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

Works great to help lower our sewer bill for water used outside of the house in the summer. Customer service was very helpful when I chatted with them. Got me to the correct item, I ordered it on-line (late afternoon) and it shipped the next day.
Meter works well. It is used to troubleshoot leaks in a water well system that provides water to 3 separate buildings. Makes it easy to isolate which system is leaking.
Would recommend to a friend.
Bets paying $400-$800 for city water meter
To is for well water for a septic system.
New county reg.
I love this water meter. Very solid and well built. I almost bought a cheaper plastic one and I'm so glad I went with this one. I bought it to attach before a new whole house water filter to monitor how much water goes through the filter to know when the filter needs replaced. I prefer to replace the filter based on the gallons it's rated for rather than randomly picking a year to replace it. This meter should do the job for years to come. Quality, solid build - I think it's about 6.5 lbs. (I bought the 1 inch one). Only maintenance will be cleaning a small plastic filter that's in the inlet side. Once yearly I will just take it out and wash out any debris, then put it back in. This should be very simple since the mechanics of the bolts allow you to unscrew/un-attach the meter from the water line very easily with no special tools, tape, etc. (my plumber even set wood blocks under the inlet and outlet sides to allow for easier removal.
I am installing a water filtering/softening system and wanted to track the water going through just this system. This is a beefy, well made water meter that I expect will last a very long time. The Aquasana System I'm installing should last at least 10-12 years, and I am confident that this meter will last and keep me on track to replace the filter system components based upon water flow, and not just on duration of time.
Flows.com had the product shipped the very next day I ordered it, and it arrived in excellent condition. If you are looking for a great meter and good service, look no further than Flows.com.
The meter was just what we needed. It was installed and running perfectly shortly after it was received. Great service.
Very well built
arrived on time
