    watermeters.com, of course. It should be low lead brass if it connects to a potable water supply, or a composite body..

    Or just keep it after the backflow preventer, no?

    Officially BFDs are supposed to be LF. There is a carve out for boiler feed devices, but not all inspectors know or interpret that.

    If the meter is just for the boiler and downstream of the BFD, that should fly as you suggested.

    Axiom has a flow/conductivity meter that's designed to be installed on a makeup water line. See the link above.
