Got the new flow sensor installed Friday and last night was the first real run. I ran the calibration Friday and when the first zone fired last night, it gave me a high flow warning. No warnings from any of the other zones.
When I did the calibration, I’m pretty sure I told it 1 minute to charge the lines. I had been using the system prior to the calibration. After the run, I checked the math and it did show the higher flow rate for the entire run.
My questions are:
Does the flow sensor measure flow during the entire zone run or does it just take a sample after the charge time and use that figure for the entire run? Or does it measure actual real time flow during the run?
Is there a way to change the charge time or do I have to run through a complete calibration?
I’m guessing my problem is/was too short of charge time and when the flow meter did it’s sample, the line was still charging. This first zone is furthermost away from the source and I think that explains the high flow for that zone and that zone only.
Let me know what you think.
