Aquaero 5 Pro - Flow Meter (Solved)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Aquaero 5 Pro

my flow rate seems to have doubled afer a re install pror reading was 207 l/h now its at 340 l/h (bearing in mind i removed 3 x 90 degree fitting from my loop since the re install)



Are these readings correct?

What tubing size are you using and what fittings did you remove?

I have the mps 400 as well and after reading all of the reviews, I don't think it's an accurate sensor at all. The use that you get out of it is strictly a reference on whether there's flow or not.

Having said that. I would power on the system with the pumps off and reset the calibration to "Set current flow as zero". See what the flow rate is after that.

I give up, did that, now its at 267 l/h, i do have a lot of blocks but temps are still good, i guess its one piece of equipment thats not giving me real value, everything else with the AC5 works a a treat!

Yeah, same here. I messed around with it for a few weeks and no matter what I couldnt get what I though would be accurate settings.

What was the ID of the fittings you removed? Not what the manufacturer listed, but the actual size of the hole the water has to flow through.

Hard to tell what is wrong here. The sensor is very sensible to swirls inside the water which is also the reason why we do not recommend to use it with 90° connectors since they will generate turbulences which will have a negative effect on the internal sensor which works with the water pressure.

Well, one thing you can try is to disable the automatic calibration of zero flow (uncheck the box and ave the settings). Maybe this causes the problem.

Shoggy thanks for the suggestion, this seems to have worked, i know the readings are to be used as a guide but 1'd estimate my flow be in the region of 1.2 - 1.3 gallons / 5.5 liters per minute (readings are around 330 -340 liters p/h)
