Mechanical water meters have faithfully served utilities for decades, becoming emblematic of a familiar and dependable approach to utility management. However, as the digital age continues to usher in transformative solutions, the juxtaposition between time-honored mechanical meters and contemporary solid-state metering technology becomes increasingly pronounced.

For many water utility professionals, mechanical meters offer the comfort of familiarity. This, in turn, makes the idea of upgrading to solid-state metering seem daunting. Driven by cutting-edge sensor technology and data analytics, solid-state meters offer numerous benefits too compelling to ignore. They are also a powerful tool to addressing the ever-rising challenges of growing populations, water scarcity, and aging infrastructure.

This article outlines several advantages that solid state meters offer over mechanical meters. However, not all solid-state meters are made the same, and it is critical that water utilities work with vendors to understand the specific features, offerings, and specifications of their products.
