What impact do hose bibs have on the wireless flow meter? Are there any best practices or guidance on where to install the flow meter in relation to hose bibs or other outlets on the main? I’m concerned about how the meter will handle purposeful flow of water from the main line at times when the valves may not be in use.
In my case, I have a pressurized irrigation water system with secondary (gray) water from the city with no backflow preventer. I currently have a hose bib tapped directly into the main irrigation line from the street. I plan to install a wireless flow meter AFTER my hose bib and before my irrigation valve manifold. Any thoughts on this? Will the wireless flow meter work as designed?
