Arrived quickly and works very well. The only question i have is the spec sheet indicates that the meter reads to 8 digits but there is only 7. Cannot see this being a problem but just wanted to mention.
instruction on reading the meter should be included
Response from Flows.Com: Thank you for your feedback. Instructions should have been in the packaging. I've emailed you a copy and most installation documents are provided on each product page for your convenience (usually at the bottom as a link).
I have not installed the meters yet. They seem awesome The brass couplers are very difficult to get a grip on They need some kind of ridge or flat surface for the wrench to grab.
Flows.com is a great company to do business with. Easy process. Fast shipping. I will be back for more
Arrived well packaged. Installs very easily. Works as advertised.
I love the simplicity of this meter but with it was made without any lead. Sadly lead free only means it has less that 8% lead by weight. Not Acceptable! Response from Flows.Com:
Up until Jan 4, 2014 it was 8%,. Since then federal regulations require that it meet a weighted average lead content of no more than 0.25%. All meters that we sell that have the NSF stamp have been tested to meet this new standard (many others meet it but aren't certified and some meters, like irrigation meters, meet older standards).
Good meter at a good price. I'm the water operator for a small corporation and these meters are working real good for us. I would recommend them.
I've been using this meter for my new residential customers and so far they have been working great
I purchased this to separate irrigation use to reduce our sewer bill. Obviously if you have never worked on plumbing before you may want to hire a pro as this is a borderline DIY project for most people. If you are replacing a like meter then it is easy to swap out.
The meter itself is robust and the same brand as our main water meter. I figured if it the Brand and model is good enough for the water company than it should be good for irrigation use as well.
Flows.com customer service is the best and are very responsive.
