Okay lets use 30 gpm
With our aptly named Badger Meter at 1" there will be 2.5psi pressure loss at the meter.

3/4" Badger meter the max they will measure it for is 25gpm to only have 2.5psi pressure loss would have one around 15gpm.

Regardless though boots is correct that the 1" copper service is the limiting factor since 15gpm is the max one can use without exceeding 5fps
