As the meter experts for over 35 years, we have read meters, billed tenants on usage, and provided energy efficiency savings for property owners and managers nationwide.

Although we have the expertise to read meters, we have encountered issues with reading water meters when they are located in flooded pits or fully submerged in water. In fact, in Florida with hurricane season and frequent rain, these pits flood and the meters are difficult to reach and read. There were also few options to use Automated Meter Reading (AMR) systems due to water damage to the transmitters. Since Tehama recognized this as a common issue, they have created a solution.  A fully waterproof wireless transmitter that can be connected to the meters and transmit to the AMR network.

According to Tehama, they have designed a submersible product that comes in two variations, a backward compatible version that operates in any existing Tehama network, and the new Max Range version. Both variations are able to be ordered with either a pulse meter input or an encoder water meter input. The first version involves the meters connected to sealed transmitter wires by using waterproof connectors between the transmitter and the meter allowing the transmitter to convert the meter read into a digitized signal for transmission. The second version is the meters located in the pit will have an enclosure that is designed to be mounted to the bottom of a plastic pit lid with a waterproof adhesive. The meters will be connected to an automated meter reading network via an installed cellular gateway or local internet line.
