I need to add a water meter. From what I've read most of should be
installed horizontally. Is it ok fo rthe face to be sideways instead
of on the top. I want to put the meter on a line that is under some
joists and to read it I will need to put it sideways.
I can't answer your question, but they do make remote reading meters. I
had one long ago and outside there was a little odometer looking thing
on the wall. Made things easy for the meter reader. Hell, now my
electric meter is read from the power company office. A computer pings
my meter and gets a reading.
If you have to install it so that the head of the meter faces up,
which is the way most every water meter I have ever seen has
been installed, and you are not able to do that in the space
you want to install the meter in, then the solution is simple...
Install the meter the proper way where you have space that
permits this and run pipes to and from that location to the
feeder and the metered side of the water line you want to
measure with the meter...
