Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daddyokins Exactly what I wanted
This flowmeter works by volume, not time. Just turn the dial and it starts flowing, then will shut off after the volume is reached, no buttons, no batteries.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ohnoiusetoomuchwater May work, but not at low flow rate
This device attempts to measure the flow of water and shut off after a configured amount has been delivered. Unfortunately, it seems to need a rate of several gallons per minute, which doesn't satisfy my requirements. The package itself does not indicate this, other than "not recommended for low pressure drip systems."

Difficult to read timer/flow gauge as my outside spiquets are only 10 inches above ground so
gauge is ~5 inches from ground.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tg0504 MelnorFlow Meter with Shut-off
The meter is easy to install but it didn't fulfill my expectations.
I wanted this meter to be able to show how many gallons I was using when attached to my hose, and the online description gave me the indication this was a function of the meter, but it isn't.
The meter only lets you set how many gallons to use at a single time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TulieGirl Good value
I had previously used a mechanical timer. My local Home Depot doesn't stock them any more, but I found them online and had one delivered to the store. Twelve dollars later, I have something I can rely on. I had two digital timers fail on me, so I was really glad to find the mechanical one still available. The digital ones don't seem to be reliable, and they're much more expensive.

This flowmeter works well, however I wish the adjustments were more precise, I would like to be able to decide to use exactly 50 gal, or water for exactly 15 min, it's a bit of a guessing game. But, when the meter is set to approx your desired amount it will stop the water, yes the water will stop so that's a great feature, can you believe it, it does what it claims and meters the water, yea. For the money I was happy enough.
Con: No instructions, if you want to just use unlimited water then you must set device to MANUAL right between the 2 markings at the top, you'll figure it out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rontron Failed Unit
The inlet hose bib ring/collar split open spuing water over my backyard for at least 3hrs before I discoved it. Plastic ring not well engineered to handle water pressure. Could prove to cause a real mess if it happens at night at about 30 gallons a minute.I bought it for the hose I use to fill the pool, I needed a reliable unit. This one lasted less than a month. All of the previous ones by Nelson, Melnor or Orbit I have used eventually failed, usually by leaking out the bottom of the unit. The older units lasted longer, about 3- 4 yrs, than the current Chinese made ones.

Works great people on wells with limited water that wish to watch there usage. Would be great for homeowner on city water to help control cost and city's to prevent anise and over use.
