But wait lets go back to that whole air getting in the lines thing. How does that effect my meter reading? My meter actually doesn’t actually measure water?
Would you like to save up to 25% or more on your next monthly water bill? Chances are you would, but i’m sure you’d also like to know how. This is a simple Fact: All water pipes Intermittently carry air along with water. As Water travels from the water provider to a home or business, air accumulates up in the water pipelines via internal and external processes. Since all water meters measure total mass and now water, the mass of both air and water, this causes the turbines in the meter to accelerate faster than just water. As a result, you pay for both the air and water.
With our H2 MINUS O commercial water saving solution, the water valves control the volume of air measured by water meters and reduces water bill costs by suppressing meter measurement of air volume. By controlling the air in water pipes from being measured by the water meter, the end result decreases the amount of gallons read by your water meter by a guaranteed minimum amount. Therefore, you pay only for the water, not air. On top of reduced water and sewer charges, you’ll also enjoy reduced maintenance costs and increased property value.
