H2O Degree announces the launch of the WM-3000 and WM-3100 Series of ultrasonic water meters. These new products are incredibly versatile, as they do not require any pipe modification for installation. The meter simply clamps around the outside of the pipe and can monitor almost any type of liquid. WM-3000 & WM-3100 meters integrate seamlessly with H2O Degree’s wireless submetering and leak detection systems.

Installation of the WM-3000 and WM- 3100 is simple and convenient. The device can be mounted onto a pipe, even while it is in use, with just a Phillips screwdriver. The WM-3000 fits resin or metal pipes from 1/4" to 2” in diameter, while the WM-3100 fits pipes sized between 1 1/2" to 8” in diameter. Anyone can install these water meters without specialized tools or knowledge. Additionally, there is no downtime for whatever equipment it is being installed on. The ease of installation saves time and keeps costs to a minimum.

The ease of installation and versatility makes these meters ideal for monitoring applications where it is difficult to shut off the water such as “Shadow Metering” to monitor the existing utility master meter for whole building usage, plumbing risers and large diameter pipes. In addition, the meters can be used for temporary metering applications and moved from site to site.  Besides water, these ultrasonic water meters can accurately detect virtually any other type of liquid, including deionized water, chemicals, oils, and consumer products due to the fact that the device does not come into contact with the liquid being measured. This also means that the liquid will not be contaminated in any way.

Once installed, the WM-3000 and WM-3100 are easy to set up and start using right away. They provide live flow monitoring, with either actual or relative flow, which can be viewed directly from the device’s display. The devices also integrate with H2O Degree’s wireless submetering and leak detection systems, allowing users to track and monitor flow over time and to be alerted to any leaks.

About the product launch, President of H2O Degree, Don Millstein, said, “We’re excited to be able to continue to provide new and innovative water metering solutions for our customers. The WM-3000 and WM-3100 are cost-effective and convenient, and they are able to be used across a broad range of multi-family, commercial and institutional applications.”
