What is ANSI/AWWA C715-18?

“C715-18” is an American Water Works Association (AWWA) water meter designation for ultrasonic and electromagnetic meters. This standard describes two performance classes of potable cold-water meters of the electromagnetic and ultrasonic type, in sizes 1/2 in. (13 mm) through 20 in. (500 mm), for revenue applications, and the materials and workmanship employed in their fabrication.

Type I

This type represents residential and commercial applications where low flow accuracy is of particular concern.

Type II

This type represents commercial applications where low flow is not of primary concern.

How can ANSI/AWWA C715-18 benefit me?

Lower Cost of Ownership

Reduced repair expenses and reduced effects of distribution system conditions on meter performance.

Industry Standards

As Meter Manufacturers comply with AWWA/ANSI Industry Standards and release new products, Meter Shops will need to evolve, too.

No Moving Parts

Ultrasonic and Electromagnetic Meters have no moving parts and are expected to provide longer operating life.

Increased Accuracy

Upwards of 5% of total water usage is estimated for the flows under current ‘mechanical meters’ ability to measure.
