Why Meter Shield?

Reduces residential Voids, commercial GAPS and ‘Empty’ properties.

The ‘METER SHIELD’ is designed specifically to enable the UK water authorities to provide full flow water to empty newly built and existing properties, domestic and commercial.

The ‘METER SHIELD’ is installed in place of a water meter, where the mains water supply for the property is connected. When fitted to an existing “empty” property, the “new occupier” will have ‘temporary’ access to full flow volumes of 250 litres of water with unrestricted flow rates.

Prevents unauthorised use of water while still providing full flow water to both commercial and domestic property.

Limits water loss/damage

Fitting of the ‘METER SHIELD’ will limit the loss of water caused by unauthorised use and the failure of plumbing fittings which in turn will minimise the damage caused.

Aids recovery of water debt

With UK water debt at around £ 2.5 billion the ‘METER SHIELD’ can be used to aid recovery of debt from unpaid bills. Installation into a property where the occupier fails to pay the bills will provide temporary access to water. The occupier will experience the inconvenience of resetting the device.

A ‘Trickle Valve’ condition occurs after the Meter Shield has been ‘Tripped’. The ‘Trip’ condition occurs once 250 litres of water have passed through the device or if the Meter Shield button is force-ably held down. The device will reset and deliver further volumes of water when the button is released and pushed to reset.

Residential Voids and Commercial GAPS

The ‘METER SHIELD’ is designed specifically to enable the UK water companies to provide full flow water to ‘empty’ properties (newly built or existing, domestic or commercial).

The ‘METER SHIELD’ is installed in place of a water meter, where the mains water supply for the property is connected. When fitted to a newly built or existing ‘empty’ property, the ‘new occupier’ will have ‘temporary’ access to full flow volumes of 250 Litres of water with unrestricted flow rates.

Limits Water Loss and Damage

Fitting Meter Shield will limit the loss of water and damage caused by “failed” plumbing fittings in the ‘Trickle Valve’ condition.
