TAKING A MEASUREMENT:
Press the START button to turn the meter on. The LCD will flash “000” momentarily indicating it is working properly. The LCD will then show a “_” marker to indicate the type of measurement units the meter will use when displaying readings. The meter will then show “- – -“ on the LCD indicating the meter is ready to take a new measurement. Once the meter shows “- – -“, it can be placed under the spray nozzle to be tested (you have 60 seconds to place the meter under the nozzle). Placement of the meter under the nozzle should be brisk and certain so that all the flow from nozzle is transferred quickly to the meter (See Fig 1). As the meter fills with water, the display will start flashing “- – -“; this indicates that the reading is in progress. As soon as water reaches the meter’s upper sensor, the flashing stops and the flow rate is displayed on the LCD (See Fig 2). This flow rate will continue to be displayed on the meter for 90 seconds or until the START button is pressed to start a new reading. Once the reading has been displayed, the water can be poured out of the open top of the meter (See Fig 3). Pouring out the contents of the meter will not affect the reading being displayed on the LCD. If a reading must be restarted for some reason, simply empty the meter and re-press the START button to ready it for a new measurement. PLEASE NOTE: The most accurate measurements are made with the meter held at a slight angle to vertical as seen in Fig. 1. This keeps the water flowing down into the meter along the back side of the meter and keeps it from accidentally falling on and triggering the meter’s sensors.
TURNING THE METER OFF:
The meter will turn on any time the START button is pressed. The meter can be turned off in two ways:
- The meter can be shut off by pressing and holding the START button for several seconds (about 3 seconds). As soon as the LCD goes blank, release the START button.
- The meter will automatically shut itself off after 90 seconds of inactivity. This means that the user does not have to shut off the meter after use since it will eventually shut itself off.
CHANGING MEASUREMENT UNITS:
The meter can be configured to display readings in either gallons per minute (gpm), ounces per minute (oz/min), or liters per minute (L/min). To change the display units, the user must first turn the meter off. Then press and hold the START button. Keep holding the START button
until the display shows “_ _ _” (about 3 seconds). When the display shows “_ _ _” release the START button and the display will start flashing “_” above the unit type that is currently selected. Press the START button to change this selection. Once the correct unit type is selected, wait without pressing the START button for 5 seconds. The meter will then enter the new setting and shut off. From that point forward, the meter will always display readings in the new units.
INSTALLING THE BATTERIES:
The batteries are housed inside the base of the meter (See Fig. 4). The black cap on the bottom of the meter can be removed by pulling it straight o the end of the meter. The cap is just a press fit onto the meter. Please use care to pull the cap o the meter so that the bottom of the meter is pointing upward. This will keep the batteries from falling out of the meter once the cap comes free which could put extra stress on the battery holder wires. The meter requires two (2) N size alkaline batteries which are available at any drug store. Place both new batteries in the battery holder following the polarity indication marked on the holder (negative end towards the spring). Place the rubber retaining ring around the batteries once they are in the holder as shown in Fig. 4. Then place the battery holder back into the end of the meter and replace the black cap and press it firmly back onto the meter. When the meter’s batteries need replacing, the meter will show “Lo b” on the LCD display a er the meter is turned on. If this message is displayed, the batteries should be replaced as described above.
The Spray Calibrator measures the flow rate by measuring the time it takes to fill the meter’s tube. The rising water level is sensed by 3 electrodes in the meter. The meter will only function with fluids that conduct electricity, such as water. In the case of distilled water, the conductivity may be too low for proper meter operation. All tap water will work very well with the meter. Any substance that coats or covers the exposed metal on the electrodes will hinder their ability to sense the water level. Care should be taken to rinse the meter inside and out with clean tap water when measurements are complete. This will keep any foreign material from building up on the electrodes. Complete rinsing will also keep the diffuser pad from becoming clogged and therefore hindering the flow of water into or out of the meter during operation. If foaming or bubbles are a significant problem inside the meter, a small drop of de-foaming agent may be added to the diffuser pad prior to use.

*Note: This product may turn off when exposed to high levels of static electricity. This product is intended for use in wet environments where high levels of static electricity do not exist and therefore inadvertent power off will not occur during normal use. A static electricity induced power off does not cause damage to this product.
