Check Your Flow Rate

Determine the correct pipe size 

The FLOWREAD™ Flow Meter comes in 3 different models, the R-315 for 1.5" pipe, the R-320 for 2" pipe, and the R-325 for 2.5" pipe. You must use the correct model for the correct pipe size for an accurate flow rate reading.

To determine the pipe size, measure the circumference, or the distance around the PVC pipe on your pool system.

Circumference: 6"
Pipe Size: 1.5"

Circumference: 7.5"
Pipe Size: 2"

Circumference: 9"
Pipe Size: 2.5"

Installation Requirements

The meter's accuracy is affected by disturbances such as pumps, elbows, tees, valves, etc., in the flow stream.  Install the meter in a straight run of pipe as far as possible from any disturbances.  The distance required for accuracy is 5 times the pipe size before the meter and 2 times after the meter.

To make it less confusing, we have created both an infographic and included diameter-specific information below to better explain the installation requirements.
