building a water meter?

anyone know how to build a basic water meter from scratch? any help appreciated, for a school project. it cant involve any prebuilt equipment in it like electric meter etc but can take in raw materials like pipe etc, hence starting from scratch. any ideas welcome, thanks.

Do you have to make something that tough? A water meter is not as simple of a device as one would think. We as plumbers put them in but we don't make them. I would suggest something simpler. If the idea is a plumbing fixture the try making a faucet with some pipe and valves. Or maybe someone else has a better project idea.

No idea here, good luck on your quest.
Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
