Water Meter Spacer Idler Tube PVC, 4 sizes available - Temporary Meter Replacement
Meter Idler tubes are the same spacing as the meter specifications for meters meeting American Water Works Association. They are used for the following:
- Installing meter couplings in the plumbing system at the correct spacing during construction before the meter is available or provided by the utility.
- Plumbing in the meter couplings without the weight of the meter during construction.
- Temporary replacement of a water meter for meter repair, testing, or servicing without using another meter while allowing temporary unmetered water use.
- Flat rate or unmetered water use in anticipation of future installation of a water meter.
- Each idler includes 1 set of meter gaskets. If you intend to reuse, you may want to purchase extra gaskets in our other listings.
