Frequently Asked Questions About the Water Meter Requirement

Water meters are devices that measure the amount of water used by residential or commercial buildings. They are common in properties across the country, and in many parts of the U.S., you are legally required to have one. While it may seem unfair that the homeowner is responsible for the cost of equipment and installation, it’s better than the alternative. You wouldn’t want to receive a fine, and you wouldn’t want to explain that your house doesn’t have one to a future buyer. The good news is that Express makes getting a water meter as easy as possible. We work quickly to get you back to your daily routine ASAP, and with two-year warranties on all installations, it’s impossible not to get a good deal when you call our plumbing pros!
