    There seems to be a nationwide shortage of 3/4" remote read deduct meters. My supplier cannot get one anywhere and I desperately need one for an install. 5/8" meters are apparently still in abundance. Supplier said something about AMCO no longer manufacturing them and Badger starting to manufacture them or vice versa? Whatever the cases is, I really need one. I don't care where it comes from - I'll pay to ship. Any help appreciated.

    I think 3/4" meters will move towards obsolescence as they build their flow capacity into the 5/8" meters, which leaves you kind of out of luck, although you can always make up for their difference in length.

    I can get you one for $200 plus shipping from Chicago to PA. Let me know if you want it, will take payment by CC over the phone.
