NSF/ANSI lead certification

Post by solarguy » Thu Jul 21, 2016 1:41 pm

I'd like to use the pulse water meter for domestic hot water in a multi-occupant building. Are the meters certified or comply with the requirements of NSF 61 or NSF/ANSI 372 regarding lead content?

Hello solarguy,

Our water meters are made of stainless steel, and therefore are inherently lead free. We chose to use stainless over lead free brass for the very reason that we could avoid any issues with lead content.

However our water meters are not NSF 61 certified. We simply have not been able to justify the cost of annually certifying each of our water meter models which has proved to be prohibitive.

If you do decide to go with a water meter from a different supplier, be sure to choose one with a pulse output. If you have a water meter with a pulse output it should be compatible with our Omnimeter Pulse v.4/ EKM Push system.

Regards,
Jameson
