AY McDonald Meter Cradle Model 15PKCity of Dietrich Idaho | Public Workstomyoung@dietrichidaho.com
This is the type of meter cradle that was installed with
the water system in 1994 for the city of Dietrich Idaho.
If your city is using an AYMcDonald meter cradle such
as the one pictured could you please email me.
This system has rubber grommets that fit over the threaded
ends of the meter. The meter sets in the cradle, and is
wedged tight in the setter when the valve is turned on.
When turning the valve on or off water sprays out full
force until the valve is fully on or off. All of the valves
are very hard to cycle on and off. Some of the valves
are frozen and cannot be cycled at all. If the grommets
become compressed or slightly damaged they leak
and have to be replaced. When the valve is off, the meter
can be lifted in or out freely. The cradle sets in the dirt at
the bottom of the meter pit. The part number for the grommet
is 4139200 or 15cg 3/4
