How to rewind a water meter?

Rewinding and tricking water meters

This article describes free methods of unaccounted use of water flowing through the meter.

The most simple and feasible at home, we consider only operations with counters SGV-15 "Betar-East".

Instructions will also be given for the unaccounted use of water through other types of meters.

These meters are used for both hot and cold water supply.

The methods are guaranteed and unconditionally work on the counters SGV-15 "Betar-East".

On other counters, these methods are also possible to apply, but with various restrictions depending on the model of the counter.

The application of these methods on the above counters is guaranteed to be successful, the application of these methods on other meters is possible, but we do not give you any guarantees. Although, if the first method is not applied to another type of counter, it will have absolutely no consequences. The information on this page is not a guide to action, but a guide to the shortcomings of accounting systems for the relevant services and organizations.

The method consists in braking the water meter

The method is simple - you need to put a sufficiently strong magnet on the water meter.

The wheel of the water meter will not be able to rotate, and the counter will not be counted.

No sealing, sealing is not broken. Intervention in the water supply is unnecessary!

Depending on the amount of water passing through the meter, the method saves from 40 to 100% water.

With a large amount of passing water (if several taps and a very large water pressure are open at the same time), the counting mechanism cannot always be completely stopped (only for SGV-15 Betar-Vostok).

To brake the counter, a magnet is used, which you can buy yourself on specialized sites.

To use it is unnecessary no special tools and materials that are difficult to get.

Method if you have another counter installed

Break it with a hammer, and immediately inform the water utility, in writing, in the form of a statement to the head of this organization: "... during the repair work on the premises, on such and such a date (yesterday), the protective shell of the meter was damaged.

I have no debt for water. Please allow the installation of a new water meter. "

Perhaps they will begin to offer you to purchase a counter from them, but of course you will refuse them, refer to the fact that the store is cheaper, and there is more choice (it really is!)

Because If you had a counter, then the project and installation services are already inadequate for you.

You buy the meter recommended by us, install it (of course you agree everything with the water utility), and call the water utility specialists to receive and seal the meter.

As for the self-installation, they will certainly cry a little, but they will not have enough money to screw up two counterattacks of conscience, especially if you confidently demand !!! And that’s all ...

By the way, I hope no one seriously believes in the possibility of unwinding the counter with a vacuum cleaner. With the correct installation of the counter, this is basically impossible, because the check valve will interfere, but even if you remove it (counter), the speed of unwinding by the air flow is ten times weaker than water, because water has a much higher density. For example, SGV-15 with a vacuum cleaner in 1 minute can be reeled up for no more than one (maximum one and a half) liter. For an hour, respectively, 60-90 liters. And the vacuum cleaner will certainly burn in an hour. Yes, and electricity will be consumed at least 1.5 kW / h ...
A warning! Dear website visitors! In your attempts to rewind or trick the counters, you will most likely succeed if you have set such a task! But do not forget, having achieved success, about caution and the rational use of natural resources. After all, after us, our children and grandchildren should also use this !!!
