How to Qualify a Water Supply
Hi, my name is Sean Burnetter. Today I’m going to show you how to qualify your water supply to ensure it will work properly with your Flow-Rite battery watering system.
Step 1: first assemble the necessary equipment. You will need a stopwatch, a five-gallon bucket, and your Flow-Rite approved water supply. Today we’ll be using our popular regulated hose supply.
Step 2: attach your regulated hose supply to the spigot.
Step 3: attach the pressure regulator to the hose.
Step 4: insert the purger into the regulator and shoot the stream into the bucket.
Use your stopwatch to time for 1 minute. Again, we do this to ensure that the water supply in your facility is compatible with Flow-Rite system requirements. If you have achieved 2-5 gallons of flow per min that means your water supply is operating somewhere between 3 and 35 PSI. This will allow your Flow-Rite system to function properly and provide you with optimal battery life.
If you have issues achieving 2-5 gallons of flow per minute, please contact your Flow-Rite sales representatives on steps to move forward. Thanks for watching.
