The self-supporting cylindrical water meter shaft is designed to be installed in the ground without additional concreting of the casing. The water meter shaft is usually installed in the green belt or burial areas. The self-supporting cylindrical water meter manhole is made of polypropylene plates by welding technology. The self-supporting water meter shaft allows the handling and servicing of the water meter outside the building.

These types of water meter shafts are supplied as all-plastic tanks forming an underground
space for the installation and inspection of the water meter and fittings on the domestic water supply connection below ground level.

Other advantages of Kellner plastic water meter manholes:

  • Quick and easy installation of the cylindrical water meter manhole
  • Watertightness of the manhole without additional measures
  • Aesthetic appearance of the manhole

Water meter shaft use and installation

Water meter manholes are all-plastic tanks that are placed in an underground space to control the water meter and fittings on the domestic water supply connection. They are manufactured in two types:

  • AS VODO "S" self-supporting water meter shaft
  • AS VODO "N" self-supporting water meter shaft

The plastic self-supporting water meter shaft "S" is made to withstand the pressure of the soil after backfilling without the need for further structural modifications. The water meter shaft "N" is placed in travelling surfaces and is intended for places with high static pressure with the need for concreting.

Detail information

Advantages of water meter manholes

One of the biggest advantages of a water meter shaft is its location. You can place a water meter manhole anywhere, even in a mobile area such as a garage. The water meter manhole is made of high quality and durable materials. If necessary, we can manufacture a custom water meter shaft for you. We offer a choice of individual chimney height, an optional lockable lid and watertight penetrations adapted to the pipe diameter. Other advantages of the water meter manhole include simple installation, easy handling due to the space and plastic ladder in the manhole, high durability and year-round access. 

How water meter manholes work

Self-supporting water meter manholes are made of polypropylene plates that are welded together and are watertight. The manholes contain a welded plastic ceiling, including the manhole, which can be fitted with a cover. A plastic ladder and clamps are anchored in the walls of the manhole.

Frequently asked questions

This is just another name for a technical water tank, including rainwater tank, which is used to hold water and then use it. Retention tanks are distinguished between self-supporting and non-self-supporting tanks, and according to the material, most often concrete and plastic retention tanks.

The size of the rainwater tank depends on several factors that you should consider when determining the appropriate size of the rainwater tank:

  • Roof size: the area of the roof from which rainwater will subsequently be discharged into the retention tank is the determining factor. The size of the area and the average rainfall in the area are calculated as part of the calculation of the expert opinion for the "Rainwater harvesting" grant.
  • Climatic conditions: the amount of rainfall in the area where the rainwater harvesting areas are located.
  • Water consumption: you need to think about how you want to use rainwater? Will it be used only for watering the garden, flushing the toilet, washing the car or for other purposes? According to this, it is advisable to determine how big a rainwater tank you need.
  • Length of the dry season: if you live in an area with long periods without rainfall, you will need a larger rainwater tank to be able to "store" more water for the dry season.
  • Available space: how much space do you have available to install a rainwater tank
    How much space do you have available for rainwater harvesting? This is also a consideration when deciding how large a rainwater tank to install
    to choose.

It is important to make a detailed calculation based on your specific situation and needs. You should also consult with a water or ecology expert to help you decide on the appropriate size of the rainwater tank.

Standard plastic tanks and sumps have several main advantages over concrete ones.

Plastic tanks and sumps have less weight than concrete structures. This makes them easier to transport, handle and install.

Plastic tanks and sumps are resistant to corrosion and erosive processes, making them suitable for storing or processing aggressive chemicals or other corrosive substances. Concrete may be sensitive to certain chemicals and may require protective coatings or other treatments.

If the focus is on durability, then plastic tanks and sumps typically have an equal or longer service life. They are resistant to weather effects such as temperature and humidity changes and are not prone to cracking and material destruction, which affects their strength and functionality.

Plastic tanks and sumps do not require as much maintenance as concrete structures. The plastic material is smooth and does not absorb substances, making it easier to clean and remove debris.

Plastic tanks and sumps are usually cheaper to manufacture, transport and install than concrete tanks.
