the Main point that has to be oriented with the calibration of water meters, is offensive imipraminovogo interval, which is set for all devices with no exception.
Often, the interval for counters for hot water is four years, and for counters on cold water for six years. Also, counters can break, fail, they can become clogged internal filter, etc. As a result, the meter starts to show incorrect data.
it is Worth noting that the distortion is both in smaller and in a big way. For example, in fact you spent 5 m3 of water, and the meter shows that the flow rate was 7 m3 of water. In the end, you will have to pay for water (2 m3), which you really haven't used!
