Pollardwater, MARS Co. launch new meter test bench

Pollardwater, a leading supplier of tools, equipment and supplies for municipal water and wastewater operations throughout North America, announces the launch of the MARS Series 100 Meter Test Bench System – sold exclusively through Pollardwater starting June 11.

The MARS Series 100 Meter Test Bench System, developed and manufactured through MARS Company, is designed to make testing ½-inch to 2-inch meters affordable for meter shops of all sizes without the need for electrical or pneumatic supply.

“Water accountability is a priority for all municipalities and utilities,” said Drew Endrody, Pollardwater product specialist. “Larger meter test benches can sometimes be out of the price range for small and medium-sized utilities and are too large for their facilities.”

The Series 100 Meter Test Bench System addresses those concerns, measuring just over 6 ft long and 2 ft wide. The price is a fraction of the cost of most meter test benches on the market today making it easier for utilities to quickly recover their investments.

“For less than $19,000, meter testing and revenue recovery can be a reality for every utility, no matter its size,” said Gordon Weidler, diversified product sales manager for MARS Company. “Considering how much water is potentially lost each month, the cost of the Series 100 Meter Test Bench System is well worth the investment.”

The Series 100 Meter Test Bench System will debut at AWWA’s Annual Conference and Exposition at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, June 11-14. Event attendees can see the unit at the Pollardwater booth, number 9131.
