I work in an industry where we need to measure flow of liquids and gases and being that this just straps on, it can't use differential pressure or coriolis effect, so it's either picking up magnetic pulses from an already existing turbine or it's using an ultrasonic signal that gets disturbed by flowing water to calculate flow rate.
10-03-2022 at 12:11 PM
It uses magnetic resonance to detect the number of revolutions on your water meter dial.

No it's to monitor water usage in almost realtime.

It takes like 5 minutes to install. You literally just wrap this box around your meter. You may want to check if your water meter is compatible though.

Depends. You need your own water meter, and it needs to be within range to your house. You strap on the Flume device to your water meter, then it relays a signal to a Bridge device in your house. The signal relay between Flume and Bridge device has a max distance (varies on any obstructions like walls in between).

Beware that the proprietary battery that you have to buy from Flume for 14.99 only last a month or two. I had the Flume 1 which uses 4 AA Lithium batteries and last only about 6wks, ($12) each replacement. Good price if the batteries lasted a year.
Contact support, my flume 2 had an issue that drained batteries. They sent a new device and battery
It's a trap!

Great deal. No brainer if you're eligible. Takes less than 30 minutes to install.

You need an LADWP account number to purchase it for $50. Not sure on the requirements for the rebate, but $50 isn't bad.

Does this just guess based on vibration of the meter?

My account number isn't working - i emailed support. Great deal and I hope there isn't anything limiting my ability to get this. Was seriously about to purchase one a few weeks ago and held off because of the price.

I think it measures magnetic fields that's produced from the meter.

I've had a flume 1 and now a flume 2 and always been happy with it. Great device.

Battery lasts a long time for me, although I do wish it wasn't a proprietary battery.

Flume 2 is excellent and not sure what everyone is talking about proprietary battery unless they have changed them.
Mine has two battery packs (i bought an extra) and I just buy 8 LITHIUM aa batteries (4 to each pack) and they last a good long while. The packs are removable and the batteries are replaceable.
Also, my meter is about 1100' from the bridge (which is in an unobstructed window) and I have no problems with signal.
It's a great device, originally had Flume 1 and upgraded to Flume 2 some time ago, happy to answer any questions. Great app, actually a fun install also. Their support is absolutely excellent also.
Even if you dont have LAWPD (whatever that is) it's worth buying outright.

I like the idea, but you need a water meter to use it?
