Watersavers offer a range of multi-jet based water meters which can be used for monitoring and measuring water usage in all types of buildings. Available in sizes from 1/2″ BSP to 2″ BSP (15mm to 50mm) these water meters feature clear easily read displays free from condensation.
Choosing Water Meters
For general cold water applications the size of water meters will generally be determined by the gauge of pipe into which the meter will be fixed.
Note that larger water meters will be have a large flowrate factor (in m³/h) but will be less sensitive to low flow rates. If in doubt consult the pdf datasheet which gives full technical information including flowrates, physical sizes, weights etc or speak to our Watersavers experts who are always willing to help with queries.
The WMP pulse meter options have a reed switch contact fitted to give one contact closure per fixed volume of water flowing through, whilst also allowing the dial to be read. The contact output may be connected to a remote digital meter, leak detection panel or other electrical / electronic system.
Water meter monitoring systems
Watersavers can also provide bespoke control panels for leak detection, flood prevention, alarm and other applications. Please call our technical department on 01603 720999 for further details.
Pulsed Water Meters
The water meters are also available with a pulsed output which can be used for remote monitoring making them suitable for installations seeking BREEAM Wat 2 and Wat 3 Credits. Watersavers Ltd offer a range of pulse water meters in sizes from 1/2” up to 4” BSP. These meters are WRAS approved and have a pulse output enabling water flow to be monitored, logged or controlled – especially for BREEAM credits.
These meters give a pulse output (usually from a magnetic reed switch) for a fixed volume of water flowing through them. The K factor as it is known is the number of litres per pulse output. On smaller meters from 1/2” to 1 1/4” BSP, the factor is usually 1 litre per pulse. This increase to 10 litres per pulse and 100 litres per pulse for the larger sizes.
Our WLDS-10 mk3 and WLDS-20 mk3 leak detection panels monitor pulses from pulse water meters and will raise an alarm should the water flow rate exceed preset parameters.
