Pool Flow Meters for Sale
A pool flow meter measures the flow rate of your water. In other words, how fast water flows through the circulation system. This metric is determined by the amount of gallons per minute that flow through the pipe. The rate varies from pool to pool, depending on various factors including the type of plumbing, pipe size, your specific equipment, filter size, and even the location of the equipment in proximity to the pool. Thus, a flow meter is the easiest method to accurately read water flow.
The best pool flow meters help you figure out exactly how much water needs to move through your filtration system to keep the pool clean. If you don’t have enough, you end up with dirty water. Conversely, if you have too much water and you run your pump excessively, you are reducing its lifespan and increasing electricity costs at the same time.
For residential pools, turning over the water, otherwise known as cycling, must be done at least once a day. When the entire volume of pool water has been through the circulation system and is filtered, then this is counted as one full cycle. This is important because not only does it filter out pollutants in the water, but a pool flow meter initiates cycling, helping to evenly distribute the sanitizing chemicals that are present in the pool water.
In addition, a flow meter helps your pool pump because the tool knows how well the circulation system is performing, and will help you regulate the speed of your pool pump for optimal water filtration. As a result of it always running at the correct speed, the optimized efficiency will also save you money. An electronic pool flow meter installs and operates pretty much the same way as an analog meter, but due to their digital sensor technology, the pool flow rate is pinpointed by pool owners accurately.
