How it works
The Watergater™’s hydro technology controls the flow of water at the main water portal, which adjusts pressure flow to provide sufficient comfortable water pressure to satisfy the consumer while providing the consumer with remarkable savings. The Watergater™’s hydro technology also controls the air that accumulates in the water pipes before it reaches the water meter.
Air accumulation in the street side of the pipes before the meter is met with pressure from the property side of the water meter thanks to our valve. This forces the air molecules to compress into the water before passing through the meter.
Your water meter measures the volume of both water and air. The Watergater™ valve compresses air before flowing through unchecked, so you can stop paying for volume you aren't using and only pay for water that you are.
With the Watergater™ installed on the property side of the meter, you maximize water consumption without compromise. What could have been up to 40% air is now 100% water by volume, and your water pressure fits your exact needs.
The WaterGater™ valve air compression advantage performs on a wide variety of meters, including single jet, multi-jet, and turbine category positive displacement. This encompasses virtually every water meter available. The WaterGater™ Valve is installed nearest to the meter as permissible on your property.
The variable spring-loaded plunger that continuously regulates a steady pressure for incoming water achieves total functionality. As a result an elevated pressure on the opposite side marks this pressure. The air will be compressed and lose its volume once it arrives at this point and after it pushes past the meter through The WaterGater™ Valve it will regain its previous form. The purpose of this process is to compress the air enough so that the water meter does not detect or calculate it. The difference in water pressure will not be noticeable and it will slow down the excess spinning of your water meter.
The accuracy of water meters are influenced by the changes in water pressure and flow, sometimes during higher or lower surges and drops in pressure. These meters are supposed to function correctly only within a limited range of water flow and if this falls outside the range then the meter will over-spin and cause the meter to give a costly, inaccurate measurement. These fluctuations are due to variations within the providers water supply.
This is where the benefit of installing The WaterGater™ Valve comes in as its exclusive spring loaded mechanism evens out the higher and lower dips in the water flow and maintains a steady flow. This provides additional protection from sudden water flow increases and also saves you money by improving the accuracy of your meter.
The WaterGater™ Valve functions as a flow restrictor when installed into the water line in which the reduction of flow is nearly imperceptive but is an impressive cost saving strategy.
As mentioned earlier, most water fixtures can only operate reliably with a maximum of 65-PSI water supply, as more than this will cause damages to seals and gaskets. Pressure reducers that are often used to regulate a 60-65 PSI range generally have performance issues over time and necessitate continued maintenance. Installing The WaterGater™ serves to decrease the pressure, therefore removing the extreme water pressure issues.
