Forum Title: False water meter readings? Need expert confirmation
Hello, I have a place in a 200 unit complex not in the u.s. Here are the facts.. 1. We have standard neptune meters. 2. The water supply is r.o. At .10 per gallon. 3. The water pressure cycles every two minut s from 35 psi down to 6 psi then back to 35. 4. When a unit is not occupied, water bills can be $200 or when occupied several hundred per month. 5. The triangles on the meters routinely spin forwards and backwards. 6. There are no check valves or backflow valves anywhere in the system. 7. We began installing check valves on 8 units several months ago. 8. Those units have seen the water bills drop by as much as 75%! 9. Who would I talk to to get a scientific opinion on this before we approach supplier indicating this has cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years? The meter manufacturer? Thanks, Brad

No one? Uncharted territory?

Is this all feed from one larger main line? If so you could put a backflow preventor on the main coming in.
