Home > METERFIT WATER METER HOUSINGS
Meter Chambers are used to protect the water meter when it is installed underground.
Often called Boundary Boxes because, for residential properties, they can be located at the boundary of the property, usually at the end of the drive.
This makes access for reading the meter very easy and also marks the spot where the consumer becomes responsible for the service pipe which travels from the chamber into theresidential property.
There is a manifold at the base of the chamber that houses the water meter (or a facility for fitting a water meter at a later date) and also has a stopcock for turning the water supply on or off.
The manifold also has a built in non return valve which prevents any backflow of water.
The manifold body is made from either a high impact ABS material or for potentially contaminated land there is also a gunmetal option.
The manifold clips easily into a base made from a strong polypropylene material that holds it securely.
Installing the meter below ground level means that it is protected from frost and from any impact at the surface. There are a range of surface box and lid options which sit on top of a guard tube.
The guard itself is 200mm in diameter and the telescopically adjustable from 450mm-750mm and securely pushes into the polypropylene base.
The entire Waterfit Meter Chamber range conforms to the Water Industry Standard 4-37-01 and all are WRAS approved
The Meterfit units are supplied with a tough polypropylene top hat and ductile iron lid
