In response to Re: Bldg. Permit Requirement: Hydrolic Analysis???
hey are looking for the water velocity, given the size of the piping and the volume used at any one time being within the standards they have established. If the meter is too small and you demand is very large, the velocity through the meter and its service pipe will be too great and could erode the system.

: My locality is trying to harrass me into spending $3k for a new, larger, water meter. The only way I can avoid it is to provide them with a "Hydrolic analysis calculation" in which we "address velocity in clear, concise manner". They also referred to table 6-5 1997 uniform plumbing code.

: Any one have any suggestions how to deal with this? What are they looking for? Do I have to hire some engineer?

: PS My water pressure is just fine.

: Thanks, A LOT, for any help.

: Rob
