“The state of California has some of the strictest regulations for water submetering. We are pleased to offer a meter that meets the highest of standards,” said Wilmar Basson, President of Minol
Addison, TX (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Minol announced the availability of the Zenner NITRO 1 Meter today at the National Apartment Association’s annual conference. The NITRO 1 is a Multi-Jet Magnetic Drive Cold Water Meter approved by California Weights and Measures (CTEP 5703-13) and is NSF/ANSI 61-G certified. It complies with AWWA C708, ISO 4064 and G13IT19001-ISO9000 performance standards.
NITRO 1 Water Meters utilize a magnetically driven multi-jet design. They are designed to measure cold potable water where flow is in one direction only in residential, commercial and industrial settings.
The certification announcement coincides with a recent conservation bill proposed by California Senator Lois Wolk which would require water submetering. California proposed bill SB 750 would require the installation of either an individual unit water meter or a water submeter in newly constructed multi-unit and mixed-used buildings (which do not meet exemption requirements). The proposed bill has been passed by the state Senate and will soon go to the Assembly side for vote.
“The state of California has some of the strictest regulations for water submetering. We are pleased to offer a meter that meets the highest of standards,” said Wilmar Basson, President of Minol. “To date, there is no statewide water submetering mandate in California. Multifamily owners should take note that if proposed bill SB 750 does not pass, it is likely it will be proposed again as the legislature has been pushing metered water as a conservation practice for quite some time.”
