Different Types of Water Meters

Water flowmeters can be made from different materials to account for chemical compatibility. The internal "wetted" materials of the flowmeter, which come in contact with the fluid, must be compatible with the fluid flowing through. Otherwise, if these materials are not compatible, corrosion may cause material breakdown. This can lead to inaccuracy or even total failure of the flowmeter. These different types of water meters also have separate pressure ratings:

  • Stainless Steel: 1500 PSI or 3000 PSI
  • Aluminum: 300 PSI
  • Nylon: 150 PSI
  • Brass: 300 PSI
  • PVDF: 100 PSI
  • PVC: 225 PSI
