The DigiFlow water filter flow meter is BPA free and offers a more precise way for you to know when it's time to change your water filters (accuracy is approximately 7-10%). You can program it quite easily by following the included detailed instructions. Ideal applications would be on a drinking water filter system, ice filters, water cooler filters or other low flow situations where flow rate and totals are needed.
This meter uses a paddle wheel and turbine flow sensor to provide the microprocessor data that can be read in gallons, and number of days (30-720 days). In addition, it will also give you the flow rate. Data is provided up to 8000 gallons. An alarm (sound and light) will indicate when it’s time to change the filter. This makes proper maintenance easy! There's no more blindly following recommended change times and potentially wasting valuable filter life.
The DigiFlow 8000T comes with 3/8” FNPT threads. 2 AAA batteries are included and typically operate for 1 year. Mounting Velcro is also included for ease of installation. Operating pressure must fall between 7-98 PSI with an operating temperature range of 40-104° F. Flow range 0.39 to 3.72 GPM.

It's working well, after a few weeks, so far. I needed to purchase two adaptor/connectors to hook it up to the tubes. I am not a professional, so I initially made the mistake of not screwing the connectors in all the way (it didn't look like the space was wide enough) and had lots of leaking; so make sure you don't see the connector threads once you've finished screwing them into the sides of the flow meter. The only negative for me was that the adhesive of the provided velcroe didn't hold (against a smooth chrome surface). I got rid of the velcroe and used double sided mounting tape instead. I now see that there is another model that allows you to see flow totals, in addition to counting down. I wish I had seen that. I would suggest that model. Otherwise, you need to write down what you set the counter to initially.
limited experience- someone else installed it and i've had it only a short time, so i don't know how difficult swapping battery and resetting it will be, and i don't know how accurate it is, but...
it was easy to setup (to my filter's expected gallon lifespan), easy to read (with phone flashlight), seems accurate, installer had no complaints, so it's great! just what is needed.
