  5. Aging Infrastructure Creates Challenges For Utilities And Their Customers
    4/7/2014

    It’s no great secret that a sound infrastructure plays a critical role in the health of our economy and our individual health. A first-class infrastructure — not just well-maintained, but modernized and innovative — is the hallmark of a first-class nation. In the United States, up until relatively recently, building the best roads, bridges, railroads and water supply systems was a priority for that very reason. The literal foundation of America was once among the strongest in the world. By Myles Meehan, Senior Vice President, Public Relations, HomeServe USA

    The HR-E LCD encoder has a 9-digit Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to show consumption, flow and alarm information. The display automatically toggles between 9-digit and 6-digit consumption, rate of flow and meter model.

  10. Choosing The Right Residential Water Metering Technology
    10/30/2017

    Accurate and dependable water metering is more important than ever for today’s water utilities. Although utility managers are tasked with meeting tight budgets, it is imperative for utilities to invest in their water metering infrastructure. When making meter selection decisions, utilities must consider several factors. These include service size, application, and expected flow rates. There is no “one type fits all” application when it comes to meter technologies.
