Installing a Water Meter.

You already know that water meters are used by water companies to monitor the water usage at a home or business. Even when a qualified licensed plumber in Chattanooga installs your new water meter, the water company will probably send a representative to ensure that the installation has been done correctly.

Here are some of the steps to take for successful installation –


  1. Contact the water company and follow the instructions.
  2. Find the water supply and the shut-off valve.
  3. Install the water meter on the inlet pipe.
  4. Wrap Teflon tape around the threads on the connection point.
  5. Reopen the valve on the water supply pipe.

Installing a brand new water meter at your home or business in the Chattanooga area is probably NOT a DYI job! It is something that we do all the time. We are Chattanooga’s plumbing company All Home Plumbing. For more than 20 years we have handled plumbing emergencies and routine maintenance and installation in Chattanooga.

Who Do You Trust?

We doubt that you recall the old television game show hosted by the late great Johnny Carson in the late 1950’s. Check it out sometime on YouTube. It is an American classic! In the plumbing world that question takes on a much more important meaning…especially since 2020 has made some plumbers more desperate.

Here are some things to discover before you hire a plumber in the Chattanooga area –


  1. Ask to see their license, registration, and insurance.
  2. Inquire if they have references.
  3. How many years of experience do they possess?
  4. What are the payment expectations?

RPZ…It’s as Easy as 1-2-3.

RPZ testing may seem like a real hassle, but it is vitally important to ensure your plumbing system is not susceptible to drawing in contaminated groundwater. RPZ stands for Reduced Pressure Zone. These are valves that are commonly installed in homes and businesses around the Chattanooga area.

Plumbing systems are typically designed to keep water at a specific pressure in order to help it flow normally. If that pressure falls, contaminated groundwater could enter the system, leading to a potentially serious issue known as backflow. As the pressure gets lower, water flows in the wrong direction, or backflows, bringing in water used by appliances and industrial equipment.

All Home Plumbing serves the greater Chattanooga area and features a certified backflow technician with more than two decades of experience in the field. All Home Plumbing will test and ensure that your home or business has a water supply that is safe and smoothly running.  For RPZ testing issues in and around Chattanooga call All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.
