How do I measure my flow rate?
Measuring the water flow is an important step in choosing the right pump. Water flow rate is measured in litres per minute (L/min).
To measure the water flow rate, you will need a measuring jug and a timer.
- Hold the measuring jug under the outlet which will be boosted.
- Turn the outlet onto fully hot or cold (depending on which is to be boosted).
- Measure the water in the jug after 10 seconds, in litres.
- Multiply the amount of water by 6 to measure the number of litres per minute.
For example, if you gathered 600ml in 10 seconds, to calculate the flow rate in litres per minute – 600 x 6 = 3600ML per minute = 3.6L/min.
