These water meters feature:
  • Sensus brand, SR, SR-II and Omni R2 water meters
  • Magnetic drive meters with sealed registers
  • Designed to be virtually maintenance free for long-term value
  • Install as replacement for existing meter of the same size, or pair with meter unions for new installations
  • Easy to read odometer-type display
  • SR II meters include a low flow (leak) detector
  • Gears are self-lubricating molded plastic for long life and minimum friction
  • Designed for horizontal installation
  • Available in USG (US Gallons) or CU (Cubic Feet)
We currently offer the Sensus Omni R2 water meter in the 1-1/2" size with flanged connections. The Omni R2 water meters have a magnetic drive with an electronic register containing no mechanical gearing. These incorporate an innovative "Floating Ball Technology. The ball is water balanced and floats between the bearings allowing the measuring element to operate virtually without friction or wear. This creates extended upper and lower flow ranges only capable with the Omni R2 meter. The register can be programmable for Gallons, Cubic Feet, Cubic Meters, Imperial Gallons, or Acre Feet and has a 10 year battery life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "Why would anyone want these meters in cubic foot increments instead of gallon measurements?"
A. Many are still in existence in cubic foot measurements and some water companies still use the cubic foot measurement instead of in gallons. We don't know why anyone would prefer it that way but, we do sell/offer them.

Q. "Can I not use a union and install them with regular couplings or maybe use a soldered female adapter?"
A. You must use water meter unions on the 5/8"-1" models (most other brands will fit as well) because the threads (as with most brands of water meters) are non-tapered and require a rubber or neoprene washer to seal the connection. The Omni R2 and the SR models require special meter flanges as those two models have flange ends.

Q. "Do I need unions to hook the SR II water meters to a garden hose?"
A. You need unions to convert the threads on the SR II meters to IPS, and use hose fitting adapters from pipe fittings to hose size.

Q. "If you have to use these water meters with unions, why do you even offer them separately?"
A. Because most water meter brands have the same sized unions, many people buy these great meters from us as replacements for other brands and don't need new unions. However, for any new installation, a set of unions would be needed.

Q. "Can juices, vinegar, salt water, etc be run through these water meters?"
A. These are great water meters but are only designed for cold, potable water. Running any other fluid through them is not recommended, would not produce an accurate reading and will void the warranty.

Q. "I am looking for a water meter that I can install outside but read inside my house. Do you offer such a water meter?"
A. We do not offer any remote read water meters. The only water meters that we offer are on this page.

Q. "If I remove a meter from service for testing or repair, can I put it back into the system?"
A. If a meter is physically removed from service and it does not comply with the local regulations or standards, a compliant product must be installed. These water meters comply with low flow standards for California sub-metering, as well as current low lead legislation, making them an ideal choice for replacing your non-compliant water meter.

Q. "What are NPSM threads?"
A. It is the abbreviation for National Standard Free-Fitting Straight Mechanical Pipe Threads (NPSM). They are straight threads used only for joining and can not be threaded directly to National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) fittings or piping. A washer or gasket is needed to seal this type of threaded connection.
