Step 5 – Gradual transition to remote meter reading

The deployment of the remote meter-reading technology should be a gradual and well thought-out process. There are several basic strategies. The first of these strategies is installation of water meters depending on the volume of water consumed. This strategy typically enables remote reading of up to 80 percent of all water consumed with installation of remote reading on 40 percent of meters. The second possible strategy is the gradual installation of remote reading based on the natural replacement of existing water meters. This means that transmitters for remote reading are installed when water meters themselves are replaced. Of course these strategies can be combined to suit the client’s needs.
