FLOWREAD™ Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Install My FLOWREAD™?

For in-depth instructions for installing your flowmeter, check out our step-by-step guide here.

What If I Need Assistance During the Installation Process?

If you need assistance at any point while installing your FLOWREAD™ flowmeter, our team would be more than happy to assist you. Our business hours are 7AM-4:30PM (PST) Monday through Friday, but if you reach out and leave us a message beyond our hours, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

How Do I Read My FLOWREAD™?

As pool water flows through the tube, it forces the float upward. The flow rate can then be read by matching the increments on the scale printed on the meter body with the top of the float.

What Kinds of Pools Does the FLOWREAD™ Work With?

The FLOWREAD™ flowmeter will work with virtually any pool as long as there is 1.5” to 2.5” horizontal piping.

How do I know what PVC pipe size I have?

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"

Will I Need to Purchase Additional Parts for Installation?

Nope! The FLOWREAD™ comes with two stainless steel clamps, a gasket, and two screws. The only thing you will need to assist you with installation is a drill with ⅛–inch and ⅝–inch drill bits.
