This.. is a really good idea. The reset has to be done of course for it to be effective, but I like it. Thanks!

I use one to keep track of how much water has run through the water softener. That's especially useful because we stay in the same place in Florida all winter. I know about how many gallons we can use before I have to regenerate. It saves on test strips.

I also use one so I know how much water I'm putting into the fresh water tank. The OEM level sensors that say 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 aren't a close enough estimate for me.

There are 2 separate flow indicators. One keeps track continuously until you manually reset it, and the other resets by itself after a certain period (several minutes) of no flow.

Just used mine this weekend to flush out my black tank. I timed how long until it filled one gallon (20 seconds) then used advanced calculus to set my phone timer for when I had put 20 gallons in. It was nice to be able to not have to constantly be running into the cab to see how full the tank was. The multiple flushing also broke loose some stubborn residue (as seen thru my clear pipe section) after the 2nd flushing.

I might get another one for the camper for the fresh water line. Since I don't know if the black water flush line has a check valve I don't mix hoses and accessories between fresh water and black tank.

Idea department! Most water tanks have three level readings that really don't mean much. Empty fresh water tank and fill using the meter. During fill - mark sides of tank with a sharpie in say five gallon increments. I am getting one also.

Good idea. You're smarter than you look.

I think there are some parks down south or maybe out west that charge for water usage. Might be a nice way of checking what you actually use per month and keep them honest.
