How do I install a WM Series Residential Water Meter?
The following process provides instructions on how to install your new WM Series Residential Water Meter.
- Remove dirt and debris from the water line. Flush the water line that is upstream from where the meter will be installed.
- The meter can then be set inline.
Cold water meters: may be installed either vertically or horizontally.
Hot water meters: can only be installed horizontally. The register should face upwards.
Use Pipe dope or pipe tape on the seam furthest from the meter odometer.
- The water flow needs to follow the arrow cast on the meter body.
- To prevent damage to the meter, open any upstream valves slowly.
