Meter Data & Logging - Policies and Guidance

This section details the process required for both retailers and third parties who wish to log meters or request meters or request data sharing on their customer's behalf. The documents below set out our requirements for the installation of external loggers or similar devices for data retrieval and transmission on our meters and the terms and conditions upon which we will allow equipment to be installed. Please view our data logging good practice adoption document for a breakdown.

We allow applications directly from third parties, but these require a letter of authority (LOA) from the non-household customer to be submitted at the time of the application. If you're a third party and not currently registered on our systems we will have to take you through our onboarding process prior to proceeding with your application.

Please submit your application via email either by attaching a completed form or providing the relevant details within your email request to our Wholesale Operations Service Desk (WOSD) – If you have any questions please contact us directly.

  • We aim to respond to all data logging feasibility requests with 5BD's in line with the good practice guidance.
  • If as part of your application we identify the requirement for a splitter we will advise you and confirm the costs involved. Depending on what's involved we'll either visit your customers to fit the splitter or arrange a site survey to check what's needed. When the splitter has been fitted, we'll let you know that the work has been completed.
  • We aim to install a splitter within 22BD’s of the costs being accepted, in line with the good practice guidance.
  • If a meter cannot be logged due to it’s age and it is >15 years old we will exchange this free of charge. Retailers must initiate the B7 process, third parties can email us directly.
  • If a meter cannot be logged due to it’s age and it is <15 years old a charge is applicable. Retailers must initiate the B7 process, third parties can email us directly.

Access to Wholesaler Logger Data

Where we have installed a logger on a non-household meter to enable us to understand night use as part of our leakage calculation for a zone this information is available upon request. There is no obligation for us to maintain the provision of such data. Data can be provided in two ways and our charges applicable to this are outlined in our published Wholesale Tariff Document.

  • a download of data by our technician
  • an account to access the on-line data portal (data will be made available for one year)

We will need 10BD’s notice for either of the requests above. Further information is available within our terms and conditions.

Please see below for a list of water meters that are approved by Affinity Water for use and installed by us. These meters are all capable of transmitting usage data and readings. They are also all capable of having an external logger applied to it. We welcome views from retailers on the meter stock we use, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any feedback, observations or suggestions. This will enable us to make sure we make the right decisions when making decisions as to what meters we supply.

All meters will be provided by Affinity Water and we do not accept privately installed/exchanged water meters. We may issue charges to replace private meters with our own approved meters.

Frequently asked questions

Can I install my own splitter cable, rather than use one supplied by Affinity Water?

Arrow icon

No, we do not currently allow third parties to install splitter cables on our equipment. Any installations will have to be undertaken by Affinity Water, using our splitter cables.

If it is an AMR meter and a splitter cable is required will the AMR functionality be maintained?

Arrow icon
Yes, we will ensure an out reader is still available, thus maintaining wireless read capability.

What happens if you Affinity Water install a splitter cable, but then change the meter in the future?

Arrow icon

If we carry our works to exchange the meter, we would re-install the splitter as it is us carrying out the works.

What happens if a meter is logged by a third party, and then Affinity Water exchange the meter?

Arrow icon

If a meter is logged without the need for a splitter cable and we replace this with a new meter that requires a cable, we can install a new splitter cable, which will be chargeable upon request.

If the meter is already logged by a third party and we exchange the meter and fit our own radio head for our own purposes, we would install a splitter cable by default for our equipment. This avoids using up all available ports and knocking out existing logging equipment already attached and thus no splitter cables charges will apply.

If a meter is an exchange from a device that requires one splitter cable type which has already been charged to a meter that requires another splitter cable type, is there a charge for the new splitter cable?

Arrow icon

If the existing meter is already logged and the new meter requires a different type of splitter cable, we will provide a replacement data logging point at our cost.
