This meter counts gallons, regardless of how much time elapses to meter out the amount set. HOWEVER, if the flow is low through this device, it may not count accurately and can let more water through than selected. As far as actual time elapsed relative to the gallons, it really depends on the flow through the meter. Higher flow will meter more gallons per unit of time, lower, less.

My concern is the "Maximum Cycle Time (min.): 240". I live on a boat and would like to hook up to...

This is a manual timer and will begin counting down from its setting as soon as the faucet it's connected to is turned on. So, if you set it to 50 gallons and leave, it will shut off after 50 gallons have passed through it. If the flow is slow through it, it may not meter it (i.e. a slow leak will likely not be metered by this). If the pressure/flow is sufficient for it to count maybe only 5-10 gallons at a time, this would continue allowing water through until 50 gallons have gone through, regardless of how many hours/days it took. Again, there has to be a decent amount of flow through this meter for it to count correctly.

Does this have a "gentle" shut off? I don't like it when the pipes bang.

It does not have a gentle shutoff. We can hear/feel when this shuts off outside when we're in the house.

how to repair a leak at the point of the water timer to the faucet, where you screw it in. Hardly been used.

Probably just needs to be tightened more. Check to make sure the gasket with mesh screen is in place.

How do I get this timer to work?

Answers

If you've created a slow-flow situation, this may not count down as you've noted. For instance, if you use it for a drip hose, if you have low water pressure, or you haven't opened the faucet much, the flow will be low and may not count down.

In using the flowmeter water timer, how do you judge how much water to use in watering plants?

For me, I imagine how many watering cans of water I'd need to water a particular area and use that as the estimate.

can the flowmeter used with gravity feed system?

Asked by Mike June 7, 2013

If there is low flow through this, I have found that it does not meter well.

Can I use this device to just measure water use from hose per day, week or over growing season?

Asked by jeff May 20, 2013

Answers

As long as your total use for whatever period is less than the max on the meter, yes. Otherwise, you'll need to keep track as this is a simple, countdown meter that counts down as water flows through it. Once it shuts itself off at the set amount, it needs to be reset manually to allow more water through it.

Although I love Melnor products and I like the design of this product, I could not tell how long the water would be running for. The gallons are difficult to estimate and if it says 1/2 hour it does not shut off in 1/2 hour. The clicks between the 1/2 hour and the shut off (I counted 8 clicks) do not tell me where to put the point so it would shut off automaticaly.
