Water Meter

A water meter measures the amount of water consumed by a building. The most common water meter in commercial buildings is a water flow meter, which calculates the amount consumed by measuring the flow rate of water through the pipe.

Why It Matters

Water meters measure how much a building consumes, thereby allowing utility companies to charge based on amount consumed. This equipment is necessary to collect real-time data, which can then be sent to energy management software. Water can account for 10-20% of annual utility costs.
