How to Use a Water Meter Measurement Bench

Author: admin / 2023-04-06
A Water Meter Measurement Bench is used for measuring the volume of water passing through a pipe or other outlet. It can also be used to determine if the meter is functioning correctly or to detect leaks in the pipe.
Water meters typically measure in gallons or cubic feet. If the meter reads in gallons, multiply the number of gallons by the flow rate to determine how many gallons have been used since the meter was installed.
In this way, you can determine how much water you’ve used in the past, and how much you’re using now. Then, you can compare these numbers to a previous meter reading and see how well the meter is working or if there are any leaks.
The first step in this process is to locate the water meter and determine its type (water meter, pressure meter, etc). Once you know which one you have, you’ll need to turn off all indoor and outdoor water appliances, including icemakers and irrigation spigots.
Next, place your meter on the water meter measurement bench. Depending on the model, it may be mounted in an upright position or upside down. Whether you’re testing a horizontal or vertical meter, you should make sure that there is no stray debris around it before beginning the test.
Besides, you should also make sure to leave the meter off for at least 20 minutes before starting the test. This will give you the best possible chance to get a clear reading.
After that, you should place your meter in the straight pipe of the water meter tester bench, and then choose a standard volume container to test your meter. When you are done, you should compare the results between the tested meter and the standard volume container to see if there are any errors.
If there are any errors, you will see the error number on your meter and then it will tell you how many gallons have been used since your meter was installed. This information will help you understand how your water bill was calculated, and will allow you to catch any issues, such as a leak, before they’re read by WUM.
