1.How do I know what size meter I need?
You determine this not by matching pipe size, but rather by the flow rate of the water moving through the water line.
Once you know your flow rate as measured,such as by gallons per minute (gpm), you may download the technical
specification from our website. Each meter technical specification page defines maximum flow rates that our meters
will handle. Please be advised that continual operation of a meter at/or close to the maximum gpm capacity
defined may reduce the functional life of the meter. SH-MECH water meter can offers Water Meters from ½” – 20”.
2. How do I correctly install my SH-MECH water meter?
Flush the line thoroughly to eliminate the possibility of foreign material reaching the meter and in-line valves.
Install horizontally, register facing up and the meter inlet port facing the water supply line.
Provide the following minimum length of straight unobstructed pipe section upstream of meter as follows:
Inlet path – one bend = 5 x diameter
Valves = 12 x diameter
Two bends or one tee and one bend or bends at random = 25 x diameter
3.Can I install the water meter vertically or in an inclined orientation?
It is recommended that you install your water meter horizontally with the register facing up and the meter inlet port
facing the water supply line.
4.Can I install my SH-MECH water meter outdoors?
SH-MECH watermeters are not designed and/or intended for outdoor use.However,
we know that many of our customers are installing our meter products outdoors without complication.
