A flow meter is a device used to measure the flow rate, or quantity of water, moving through a pipe. All well permits granted by the Division of Water Resources in the State of Colorado require the installation of a meter. If you have a meter, it is recommended to read the meter on a monthly basis and retain your records annually.
Installing a flow meter
While professional installation is not required, we recommend contacting a certified well/pump installer or a plumber.
If you choose to do it by yourself, below is a list of sources to order/purchase a flow meter online:
