What is the K factor for the flow meter?

Asked by John October 23, 2017

Answers

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 .

what is the minimum flow rate accurately measurable, say after about 10 seconds accumulation time?

Asked by teepee January 2, 2017
1
Answer

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.

Measure individual units?

Asked by Overpaying July 12, 2016
1
Answer

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.

What's the upper limit on the flow rate it can measure before itself becomes a big restriction?

Asked by November 2, 2015
1
Answer

Pimpdaddy, the flow rate for a ¾” diameter hose with a length of 50 ft. is going to be approximately 27 to 28 gallons per minute at 50-55 psi. Should you have further questions, though, please contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!

Very good concept , built fair out of all plastic. Good value for the money . Trying to keep track of water usage here in California. I've got several of them in service on all our outside faucets and have modified one for my pool fill line and outlet. Works well for running total every use plus keeps a total for as long as you don't reset it. Have had one for two years going strong. One of mine did snap from pulling to hard on the hose it's all plastic. I converted it to my overflow on our pool as I want to see how much water in the winter gets thrown away. Lots of uses, fairly accurate great value. I wouldn't use it for leak detection as it's not that accurate.

Works good
Using this to measure amount of water for landscaping (watering from hose faucet). Found it was not perfectly accurate, but reliable. Did the test of filling a gallon jug 10 times, and found it measured low. Did the same with the water company meter, and found it was very accurate. So now just compare this item with the water company meter, and find it consistently reads about 5% low. Am using after a filter and 25LB pressure reducer for drip irrigation. If get one, do the 10 Gal test to chk for accuracy. You may find in your usage, it is very accurate. What is important to me is, it is consistent, so can apply a ratio (1.05). Rated highly for consistency. Been using for weeks with no problems, just works.

Not the most accurate meter, especially at low gpm, but it's very inexpensive, so you can't expect too much. It's no replacement for a water meter from your water utility company, but for a general indication of how much water something uses, it seems okay. For what I paid and what I expect out of it, it works just fine.
