Ford inside settings meet water meter installation requirements with three basic design applications. New installations, existing service line installations and settings for special applications. All Ford Inside Meter Setting Devices, while adding a small initial cost to meter installation, provide long-term cost saving advantages. Coppersetters are available with connections for a wide range of types and sizes of pipe and tubing. Both Coppersetters and Resetters can be tailored to special conditions. We stock many different configurations to fill most orders for the most common situations.
We stock a full range of no lead brass products including ball valves and check valves with integral meter nuts, both angle and straight.
A ball valve before a residential size water meter is always a good idea. This installation allows for easy water shut-off and access to the meter should it need repaired or replaced. These ball valves come with a meter swivel connection on the outlet side to make it even easier to connect right to a water meter.View downloads
Often times a water line enters a residence vertically but water meters should be installed horizontally. An angle meter valve solves that installation problem as well as providing easy shut-off access to the meter for repair or replacement.View downloads
For 1-1/2″ and 2″ water meters where an elliptical flange connection is usually required, a straight or angled flanged meter ball valve before the meter is a must for easy installation and ongoing maintenance of the meter.View downloads
Backflow prevention and back siphonage protection are widely mandated in many water service installations, whether they be commerical, industrial, or residential, and check valves can help keep wastewater from backing up into your home or business, contaminating your water, or damaging your water meter or other property. When an approved backflow prevention device is not required, single check cascading check valves offer economical but reliable single check protection just downstream of the water meter. Single cascading check valves come straight or angled with inlet meter swivel nut connections for easy installation and access. The check is in-line accessible and can be maintained without removing the valve from the line. Check repair kits are also available.View downloads
These days most water service providers specify a dual check valve for extra protection against any backflow event. A second check provides added security in case the first check fails and two checks provide a stronger deterrent in the case of a powerful backflow situation. These checks come straight or angled with a meter connection inlet and are all in-line accessible for easy maintenance. Repair kits for the checks are readily available and in stock.View downloads
Cartridge style dual check valves encapsulate each check in a self-contained cartridge, making for even easier in-line repair and maintenance. Cartridge dual check valves are available straight or angled with an inlet meter swivel connection for easy installation and protection right after the water meter. Repair kits are also readily available for these check valves.View downloads
Kornerhorns take many of the headaches out of inside meter installations and are often the go-to installation fixture for large meter changeout jobs or for municipal meter shop stock. The compression adapters on both ends allow for an easy meter installation regardless of the piping materials of the existing plumbing. Kornerhorns offer a horizontal meter installation in a vertical water line and can fit easily into corners of basements or other cramped spaces.View downloads
Copperhorns are designed for new water services and provide a neat, easy to install inside meter setting without the need for many fittings and joints. Future meter changeouts are a breeze without pipe cutting or extra plumbing work. Copperhorns are available with several different pipe connections for 5/8″ – 1″ meters.View downloads
Basement resetters are used to convert a vertical indoor meter setting to the preferred horizontal position. Installing a water meter vertically can lead to the meter parts wearing out prematurely and to inaccurate readings. The vertical inlet and outlet are meter thread and spaced just like the meter being reset.View downloads
