Error assemblers which leads to breakage of the water meter. Fotolikbez.

Water meter sensing device which sufficiently often becomes unusable under adverse conditions. Since each water meter is required to complete the device is a passport. It is clearly stated how it is necessary to put counters, under what conditions it will work properly and will last at least six years. But under certain conditions, some parameters of the installation are not complied with and the water meter comes into disrepair. Bringing the owner of an apartment or house damages in the form of wasted time and money.

In one flat I had to replace the device due to its breakdown due to dirty water. The photograph shows that after the closing of the valve absent strainer.

Debris from the line was deposited on the counter flow divider means. Or to put it easier on the grid in front of the counter.

The water pressure on the mesh increased and large debris slipped into the water meter resulting in the meter impeller snagging and damage the device.

Landlord has shown how much rubbish has accumulated in front of the instrument and the question "what should I do?" I was supposed to install a strainer. If this is not done the new counter will break again in a short time.

Like plumbing and share a post. Spasibo.😉
