The Importance of High-Quality Pool and Spa Automation
Many novice pool owners assume that a swimming pool, hot tub, water feature, or pond essentially takes care of itself. All you have to do is fill it with water, turn on the pump, and make sure you used enough pool shock to keep the algae out, right? Unfortunately, things are a little more complicated than that.
There are a number of vital steps you must take in order to achieve efficient pool spa automation. Keeping the water at the desired level is one of these tasks you don’t think about. Also, correctly calibrating your pool’s pump is another. A pump that is working too slow will be unable to keep the pool water clean, which will inevitably lead to stagnant water that can be unhealthy to you and your loved ones. On the other hand, a too-fast pump will circulate more water than necessary and spend too much energy, resulting in high water and electricity bills.
This is where a flow meter comes in!
What is a variable speed pump flow meter?
A precision flow meter is a device that measures the true flow of water through your hot tub, pool, pond, or irrigation’s circulation system. By correctly measuring gallons per minute, using calibration that’s in accordance with the size of the pipe, it enables you to pinpoint the best speed for your pump.
The majority of precision and low flow meter devices are equipped with an easy way to read the measurement. This can either be a chamber with visual markings or a digital LCD display. This allows even first-time pool owners to successfully and easily set up the right speed for their pump and enjoy a great experience.
How a variable speed pump flow meter works
All flow meters are designed to facilitate pool and spa automation by accurately measuring the amount of water that passes through them. They usually consist of the transmitter, the transducer, and the primary device.
The transducer’s job is to measure the liquid that goes through the primary device. Afterward, the transmitter picks up the measurement and converts it into a readable value that’s shown on the LCD display or in the visual chamber with markings. Flow meters are usually installed directly in the plumbing on a section of pipe that is long & straight.
Other advantages of having a FlowVis variable speed pump flow meter
- Efficient skimming – skimming efficiency can only be realized at optimal flow rates, which can’t be pinpointed without a correct flow meter.
- Heater efficiency – knowing the flow rate of your water pump is critical when it comes to optimizing heater efficiency and minimizing operating costs.
