The one I have in a house renovate was internal meter ,I took it out imagine paying for the water for all those gauges willl put it back when I am done
But basically you can not have them removed legally
If it is internal best to install new mdpe pipe install from stop tap the T offs to garages ect & outside taps before meter :coffe:

Once a meter your stuck with it
Got them to put me one (£80) in a boundary box near the road so at least it was not in the house taking up space. Original in house popped off once flooded kitchen!

Think about it, if at source, then no way of cooking the books. Anyway, better than having the monstrosity in the house.
