How to Measure Your Flow Rate

Worried that you may be suffering from low water pressure but would rather do your own checks before calling a plumber? Testing the water flow in your home is a quick and simple task if you follow the three-step strategy provided by Salamander Pumps.

All you need for the test is a measuring jug and a timer.

How to measure your flow rate

Measure the litres of water in the jug after 10 seconds.

Multiply this value by 6 to get the litres per minute.

For example, if you get 0.6 litres in 10 seconds, multiplied by 6, gives 3.6 litres per minute.
