Know Your Flow!
Usually used with a return pump, this flow sensor can be placed in line with the flow on any pipe, connected to the FMM, and communicate to your Apex the flow rate of water through that pipe. The FS-50 will work with flow rates from 30-250 gph, and will connect to any standard 1/2" Slip PVC. The flow sensor itself uses British Standard Parallel Pipe (BSPP) threads so two specially designed PVC unions are provided with slip fittings to adapt it to standard 1/2″ PVC plumbing.
1x 1/2" Flow Sensor
2x SBPP x 1/2" Slip Unions
Yes you would be able to use those to adapt to soft tubing.
I heard back from Neptune Systems on this, and the measurements (plus fittings) are as follows: 4" x3.25". Have a great day!
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to this set-up you are planning. In order to get that set-up you will need to use a metric to standard fitting. I have included a link here below to an item that you can use to get this taken care of. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
The flow sensors have a 16 foot cord length, so you should be in good shape in a variety of plumbing setups!
The connections on the flow meter are female slip, so in order to connect to the RO tubing of the reactor, the most likely solution would be to glue a short section of 1/2" pvc into the coupling, and then attach a female slip x thread coupling, and you could then insert an npt x push connect fitting into this. I've included links below to these two fittings.
