Today, utilities are faced with aging infrastructure and reduced operating budgets while challenged to meet rising customer demands. Because water meters are a utility's cash registers, the solution begins with measurement integrity at each water meter.
Neptune has set the standard for quality, reliability, and accuracy since the first Neptune meter was produced in 1892.
- All Neptune water meters meet or exceed American Water Works Association standards and NSF/ANSI 61 certifications.
- All Neptune water meters are automatic meter reading (AMR) and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) capable.
- All bronze meter bodies are made from a lead free, high copper alloy.
Since 2001, each Neptune bronze-body water meter has been made of a lead free bronze alloy at the company’s own foundry. Although more costly to cast than leaded bronze meters, the process provides a safer product for Neptune’s customers and their customers and for the environment as a whole. Whether measuring flow for residential or commercial and industrial applications, our lead free bronze alloy meters not only meet current federal regulations but also the recent amendments to the NSF/ANSI 61 rules, called Annex F and Annex G, which contain more stringent maximum lead levels for drinking water quality. Neptune’s water meters already meet these future requirements.
