The water meters are also available with a pulsed output which can be used for remote monitoring making them suitable for installations seeking BREEAM Wat 2 and Wat 3 Credits.
Watersavers offer a range of pulse water meters in sizes from 1/2” up to 4” BSP. These meters are WRAS approved and have a pulse output enabling water flow to be monitored, logged or controlled – especially for BREEAM credits.
These meters give a pulse output (usually from a magnetic reed switch) for a fixed volume of water flowing through them. The K factor as it is known is the number of litres per pulse output. On smaller meters from 1/2” to 1 1/4” BSP, the factor is usually 1 litre per pulse. This increase to 10 litres per pulse and 100 litres per pulse for the larger sizes.
