The paper presents a study on the sensitivity of the water meters and on the volume of the water loss in a water supply branch, corresponding to a block of flats, aiming to emphasize ways in which errors in metering the consumed water are produced. It is presented also the experimental installation used in the research, which consists of several water meters of different types, used as apartment water meters and branching water meters. The water meters analysed are of three types, belonging to

The experimental installation is used for collecting experimental data, for determining the water loss volume; it also analyses the water loss estimated for a month for each water meter considered, creating the premises for estimating the water loss volume during a certain period of time for a block of flats consisting of a certain number of apartments, assuming that there are the same type of water meters mounted in each apartment. In this way it is possible to determine the losses in a potable water supply system.
