Master meter brand Multijet meters
these meters have numerous of issues from what i have personally seen.
the 2 main issues, 1. Jetting obstructions that cause meters to over read flow and as a result bill the customer more money. 2. if this meter is in anything but a proper vertical position, it will tear up the rotor wheel and eventually self destruct...giving alot of free water....as seen in pictures below.

master meter new and used wheel and chamber pin comparison
in this example, the green wheel has worn away the top and bottom pin holders causing the wheel to rotate randomly within the chamber, recording some usage but not much, and as it rubs against the walls unrestricted, it wears away the fins to make matters worse, basically self destructing, and giving the customer alot of free water.
one master meter i tested was only showing 60% accuracy on water flow over 9 gallons a minute, anything less than about 7gpm and it didnt even register any flow.
