Sizing Water Service Lines and Meters
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
This manual contains information needed to estimate customer demand and maximum expected flow that can be used to size new service lines and meters. A field method of demand profiling is presented that can be used to evaluate actual customer use patterns and help optimize meter size selection. The data presented in the manual were obtained from field measurements, utility surveys, technical publications, and hydraulic design calculations. This information has been condensed into a simplified format to facilitate its use. The methods contained in this manual can be used by technicians, architects, and engineers to address most service conditions. However, there may be special cases where the design is beyond the scope of this manual.
