Residential Water Meter Testing
ICONIX Waterworks tests individual meters to resolve disputes or larger lots of meters as part of a maintenance program to determine the optimal age for replacement. Customers have the option to have these done in the field or bench tested in one of our Flow Lab Facilities.
Commercial Water Meter Testing
ICONIX safely, accurately, and quickly tests commercial meters to determine if they are correctly registering the volumes of water they process. While commercial meters likely make up a small percentage of your total meter fleet, the volumes they measure can represent 60 to 80 percent of your water revenue. Likewise, under-registering commercial meters represent the largest percentage of your potential lost revenue.
Commercial water meters process a high volume of water and may lose accuracy more quickly than residential meters. Testing and maintenance can be easily arranged and the costs are low in comparison to revenues lost as a result of inaccurate meters.
In-Situ Water Meter Testing
Our team uses specialized meter testing equipment to test meters on-site. These units allow us to bring to you everything required to test your meters – including the experts, specialized equipment, and a supply of required parts. We test meters in their current environment, allowing calibrating and repairs to achieve optimum performance. On-site repairs reduce downtime to the customer, thus making in-field testing and maintenance a crucial part of a supplier’s water system.
In addition to mechanical flow meter testing, ICONIX Waterworks offers verifications, installation, and commissioning of electromagnetic flow meters and transit time ultrasonic. We use many different instruments and software to ensure these devices are in normal operation.
Water Meter Test Bench
ICONIX provides in-house testing from our two Ford Water Meter Test Benches in Canada. Our test benches are capable of testing all meter makes and models up to 10”, and allow us to perform in-house tests for residential water meter disputes for customers (including cities, municipalities, public and private water companies) across Canada. It has three lines for different sizes of meters and, depending on what meter size is being tested, it can test up to 8 meters at a time. The process is used to ensure meter accuracy, and works by pumping water through the meters at different flow levels.
