2" flow meter

At what side of the pump should my 2" flow meter be?   can I put it at the end of the shut off before attaching to my hardi sprayer.

I am finding too much of difference in readings?

What side of pump should you put your flow meter?

 The Banjo Flow Meter can be used on either the suction or flow side of the pump. The meter will perform best with 18-20 inches of straight pipe on the inlet and outlet of the meter. You will need to use a smooth bore hose also. The use of elbows to close to the meter or not using smooth bore hose will create air pockets in the flow and effect the accuracy of the meter.

It is beoming smaller the difference but still 20 gallons out on 600 gallon tank,  will have to shut it down sooner.

Have you rotated the meter 45 degrees to help with the accuracy? Are you comparing the flow rate by looking at the tank sight gauge? Typically the tank sight gauge is not  100% accurate.   Have you used any 90 degree elbows around the inlet or outlet of the meter? What flow rate are you putting through the meter? Feel free to send pictures of your system to banjosales@idexcorp.com  so we can view and make suggestions if needed. Thanks.

yes, i have rotated degrees. have compared it to site guage with new marking on it.  i know my sprayer flow meter is calibrated correctly. been using it compared to wahat i have put in.  only 90 elbow is on sprayer the 18" of pipe, then meter , then 12' of straight round hose to pump..  would have to check on flow rate again.  i open all valves run water thru pump line v meter valve and shut end of hose off, holding water full in line, attached to sprayer, reset meter to zero, then open valve,   what am i missing?  will send pics.

 Are you using a smooth bore
