A.Y. McDonald Mfg. Co. Meter Boxes are complete, compact meter-setting packages, which are installed as a unit.

They are the ideal water meter housing for moderate and warm climates. Meter Boxes provide automatic alignment for the

water meter, which can be inserted any time during or after installation.

The body and lid are made of durable cast iron (ASTM A-48, Class 25 minimum) to provide many years of trouble-free

service. The inlet, outlet, and expansion connection are manufactured of brass and meet or exceed the current AWWA

Standard C800. All dual check valves are ASSE 1024 approved.

775 Series Yokebox

Yokeboxes are more compact. An inline

dual check valve may be integral to the

yokebox or installed outside the yokebox.

776 Series Longbox

Longboxes include an inline dual check

valve inside the box.

General Information

Installation

Correct

Incorrect

1. Backfill to make certain the grade is level with the top of the box. This will help avoid a tripping hazard.

2. Lock lid securely into place. Locking style lids are preferred to prevent unauthorized removal which could create a safety hazard. If a

lockless style lid is used, make certain it fits properly into the frame and is not subject to sliding or tipping out of position. A.Y.

McDonald lockless lids have extra long alignment lugs to deter improper lid placement.

3. Lids and boxes are designed as a unit. Components are not interchangeable with other manufacturer's products. A.Y. McDonald is not

responsible for users replacing or interchanging meter box lids with other manufacturers products.

4. Check periodically to ensure correct operation of locking devices and to make sure the lid remains at ground level.

Expansion Connection

Longboxes and yokeboxes include a handwheel style expansion connection,

eliminating the need for a wrench during meter changeouts.

Plug Valve Features

The plug valve holds the plug in place using a drive pin and a spring

washer. An o-ring provides additional leakage protection. Angle valves

are 60° from horizontal. A variety of inlet and outlet couplings are

available for copper or plastic tubing, PVC, PE, or iron pipe. Plug

valves are rated to 100 PSI.

Tee head - padlock plate and

lock can be attached

O-ring seal

Ball Valve Features

The ball valve features a solid one piece tee-head and stem. An

o-ring in the stem assures a watertight seal at the top. Molded

rubber seats support the ball. The PTFE flurocarbon coated brass

ball will provide years of maintenance free service. A variety of inlet

and outlet couplings are available for copper or plastic tubing, PVC,

PE, or iron pipe. Ball valves are rated 300 PSI.
