Water Sensor Question

So I found that my water meeter comes with a built in sensor... I went out to the actual box and found that the wire is there ready to be use....
Would this work with the Flukso v2?

According to the data sheet, this should indeed work. Just connect the red and black wires to a Fluksometer pulse port (4 or 5) and correctly set the meter constant.

I was told that i can not by law tap in to their system as it will consider tempering with a city device...
So now knowing that it does have a pulse I will order a reed sensor form the store.... Are this water proof? My meter is expose and it constantly floods because of rains.

You don't need an extra reed sensor. Just use the red and black wires of the cable that's already present.

The problem is that I was told that I cant do that... That is against the law because the equipment belongs to the City and not me. So I am looking to alternatives.

Ok so I found a new water meter that I will install on my property. The built in reed switch has specs of:

Dry contact reed switch pulse output. This requires external DC Power, 4 Watts, 30VDC Max, 1 Pulse Per Gallon.

will this one work?
