Understanding water meter accuracy
Since the water meter is what enables fair billing of the utility’s services and products, knowing what makes accuracy – and what does not – is key.
In water metering, dynamic range is sometimes mistaken for accuracy so that meters with a high dynamic range are considered more accurate than those with a low dynamic range. Albeit dynamic range relates to accuracy, there is no direct link between the two terms.
In fact, dynamic range does not necessarily say anything about a meter's actual measurement capability. To make informed decisions about your water metering investment and gain the most value from it, you must look beyond that one number and see the bigger picture.
