Q: The 300series meters are plastic. Does this make them less durable than brass meters?
A: Absolutely not. External case parts are polycarbonate, an extremely strong and impact resistant plastic material. The tube through which the water flows is made from a high strength glass reinforced, WRAS listed, engineering polymer. Parts are single piece, ultrasonically welded or bolted together and 100% tested in production to withstand 32 bar and certified to 16 bar continuous operating pressure. In fact, plastic meters are better suited in areas where desalinated water is used than brass meters.
