Water meters are incredibly crucial to apartment buildings. Without adequately maintained water meters, you can’t be sure that you’re getting accurate readings - either for you or your residents. Inaccurate readings can result in paying more than you need to for water service, or angry residents confused about their bills. So how do you make sure your meters are properly maintained? Of course, the water company plays a significant role in the maintenance of your meters, but plumbers can play a part as well.
Replacements and Repairs
A properly maintained water meter can last over twenty years. However, it’s imperative that you’re trusting a company that can spot damage and errors when they occur. The quicker a problem is spotted, the less likely to impact the accuracy of your readings. The pros at ABR will ensure a broken or malfunctioning meter is replaced right away, by alerting the water company, so there will be no interruptions to your service.
Water meter technology has come a long way in recent years. You want to make sure your meters are being maintained by technicians that understand how they work. Here at ABR, we stay on top on all of the latest plumbing technology, and that includes water meters. No matter what kind of meters you have in your building, we’ll be able to make sure they’re kept in tip-top shape.
Know When to Alert the Water Company
Part of water meter maintenance is knowing when to alert the utility companies if there’s a problem. Spikes in readings can indicate leaks or plumbing issues, which ABR is always prepared for. We also know when to alert your water company when an issue presents itself that we can’t handle alone. Although water meters are owned and maintained by the water company, our technicians are highly trained in what to look for when there’s a possible problem.
