I haven't seen these is a few years , not sure they are made anymore. They worked well but didn't last long for us. The hose connecting would snap off with little pressure making the unit garbage. Went through a dozen before giving up.
This is garden hose fittings , you would have to convert you kitchen faucet with this fitting in order to make it work in your kitchen.
I've had mine for several years and have not changed the battery.
Hi , not able to figure K factor , of what I can tell you is operating range is 7.25 to 87 psi. Of course water pressure valve sizing ,faucet and hose sizes will all play into factoring. I have several of these and find they are more accurate on the higher side of pressure then low. The K factor should be a easy answer from the MFG since the center turbine is the counter for the pick up and needs to spin x times to make this thing work. . I’ve tested these filling five gallon buckets on a scale and they are always on the low side . Usually 98 percent or better. See picture below of how they are assembled as I also have several of theses that failed prematurely, seems since the hose bib connection is fixed on a cast they snap easy with little side pressure. My hd won’t take them back so Ive been messing around with the broken ones. Note the online price vs the store price almost double in the store. Good luck.
This will work attach outlet to your manifold. Everytime any hose is used this will record it in real,time and keep a running total . Be advised this is all plastic so with multipal hoses you might want to support this product along with some strain relief. This might not be the product for finding small drip type leaks .

teepee, your water flow meter requires a minimum of 7.25 PSI in order to produce an accurate reading. For some context, 0.05 gallons/minute (GPM) is equivalent to about 0.5 PSI, meaning that you'd need a minimum flow rate of about 0.725 GPM to get accurate readings.
Overpaying, that will depend on where you install the flow meter. If the flow pipe separates from the flow meter individually into your place, you can install it on your pipe line and read the flow that's going only to your place of use. If you attach it inline with the main flow meter, though, it’s not going to distinguish which water usage is yours and which water usage is the others you're sharing the water meter with.
