Flap Wheels

How accurate is the water meter in my house. Plumbers?

Is the water meter in my house accurate enough to pick up dripping faucets? It was installed last year and has a digital readout so it's fairly new in design. I'm thinking a small drip wouldn't be enough to register. Also how do they work ....flap wheel...or some other high tech metering device. Thanks for your time.

Answer is yes, water meters will detect even very small drips. They are designed to record water volume flowing through the meter at any pressure or amount. Various meters use various methods to measure water flow. But most use a wheel that senses the pressure on the house side and opens to allow the water to flow when the pressure drops enough.
