Hi,

Would just like to ask how to properly maintain ARAD pulse water meters. Right now we only clean the inside platic filters every grow?

Lastly, how do you perform calibration of this as well.

Thanks!

Marion,

Cleaning the plastic filter is the only routine maintenance required on the Arad meter.  The normal sanitation and flushing of the water lines will keep the meter in working condition.  The meters are calibrated when manufactured.  Additional calibration should not be necessary. However, to calibrate you would remove the pipe from the outlet side of the meter and install a short, 3-4 foot, section of 3/4" pipe with an on/off valve. Read the meter, than with the valve off, run 5 gallons of water into an approved calibrated measuring pail.  Reread the meter to see if the numbers registered 5 gallons correctly.  If not, the security tag must be removed, and the cover nut removed so the adjusting screw can be turned clockwise to increase flow or counterclockwise to decrease flow.  Re-test the 5 gallon output and adjust more if necessary.  

Regards,
Anthony
