Correctly calibrating the pump in a swimming pool can sometimes be tricky. If the speed is too high, the pool owner will be wasting energy by circulating the water in the pool more than is necessary. If it’s too low, the pump may not be able to thoroughly clean the pool, leading to dirty and stagnant water. Fortunately, flow meters are a simple solution that can help your customers find the correct flow speed for their pumps.
How Flowmeters Work
Flow meters are designed to measure the amount of liquid that passes through them, outputting the measurement as a function of liters per minute (or another volume/time measurement). These devices typically consist of three components – the primary device, the transducer, and the transmitter. Water will pass through the primary device and be measured by the transducer. The transmitter will then convert that measurement into a readable signal and output it.
Flow meters used in swimming pools are typically installed directly in the plumbing on a long, straight section of pipe.
Benefits of Quality Flowmeters
Quality flow meters that will output accurate measurements of a swimming pool’s rate of circulation make it easy to adjust the speed of a pump to the desired rate. By optimizing the speed of a swimming pool’s pump, flow meters enable pool owners to keep their swimming pool fresh and clean while at the same time conserving a lot of energy and increasing the lifecycle of their pump. For these reasons, having a quality flowmeter in place is a necessity for a lot of people, and they are the perfect complement to a great pool pump.
