I've seen many various water meters over the years....that is a nice compact one.
Good find!

Amazing what can be done now a days.

Never could figure out a real need for one though.

Just don't see why you would want one. Good price though.

Cool find.

Am I gonna get one? You bet. It is the toy factor !

I guess I could use it to make certain I wasn't overfilling my black tank while cleaning it. Other than that I can't think of a single real use the thing.

I gotta agree with the "cool toy" comment though.

You use them for measuring water volume for irrigation.

How much water different sprinklers use to determine volume and coverage.

I have two of these. One for filling my black tank. Its great when you know you need 10 or 20 gal to top off before dumping. I also have one hooked to my deionized water tanks. Gives me an idea of how much I get out of each resin change.

I think I got them on Amazon for $13 each.

That same store seems to have some good prices on LED bulbs, and shows to be in Garland, TX? Not too far from me.
Thanks for the link.

Just ordered one. Never knew they existed.

Due to our drought we have to cut back 36% on water usage and this will help me measure water flow when watering plants, shrubs, etc.

I don't carry much fresh water in the RV so it will help me measure how much I put in.

Thanks for the post!

I use one like that on the outlet side of the pump.
That way I know when to go get more water to fill the tank.

Then I forget to reset it, so it don't help.
