How long will the installation upgrade take?
Under normal circumstances, the installation will take approximately 30 minutes. The water will be turned off for about 5-10 minutes until the meter is changed. Dewatering your line may result in some trapped air or slight discoloration in the water supply. This is normal and will clear after running your water for a few minutes.
