Prepaid Water Meter

As water is used, the meter registers pulses from the measurement element and decrements the remaining credit in meter. The meter measures units of water and decrements units of water as it flows through the meter. The meter does not store any tariff information making the meter very simple and cost effective. When all the available credit is consumed, the meter shuts off the valve, cutting off the consumer‘s water supply. The meter supports advanced features to allow for compliance to general utility, legislative and World Health Organisation basic water guidelines.
