I’m going to finally get around to submetering the water at my small 14-space park. I’d be interested in any specific meter recommendations that you might have.
My big question is climate related. The park is 90 miles east of Tucson, Arizona. They do freeze and get snow over the winter, though a plumber told me recently (if I’m remembering right), that “we don’t really have a frost line here”.
I’m not sure whether I need to put the meters in a box at all, and if so, whether the box would have to be below ground level. One company I called said that they have cute little styrofoam jackets to put around the meters when it gets cold out (ok, I added the “cute” part; can’t you just see the meter wearing a little fuzzy winter coat?).
And I see that there are meters with a polymer body. Would that help minimize the chance of freezing compared to a brass body?
