Flow Meter options

Postby rpu_bus » Sat Oct 14, 2017 12:31 am

I have been testing an Adafruit 833 for almost a year at which point the electrical connector corroded and separated. I thought the meter was leaking but inspecting shows that the pressure regulator was the culprit.

I have replaced the flow meter with an Orbit 52212 that was modified to use a hall sensor (A1190). I like how it goes inline and uses the hose fittings I have, replacing the electronics with a hall sensor and potting it in place with hot glue is less of a pain than I expected.
