Know Your Flow!
1" Flow Sensor for the Fluid Metering Module from Neptune.
The FS-100 will work with flow rates from 150-1500 gph, and will connect to any standard 1" Slip PVC.
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 flow sensor itself uses British Standard Parallel Pipe (BSPP) threads so all BRS customers we have included two specially designed PVC unions with slip fittings to adapt it to standard 1″ PVC plumbing.

Don't take them apart. A good way to clean them is during a service, remove the sensor. Place the sensor in a bucket with Vinegar water solution. The solution should be filled to just below where the screws are. Do not submerge the screws.
Do not submerge the FS100 flow sensor as it is not waterproof. According to the manufacturer, you should orient the sensor so that the point where the cable enters the body of the flow sensor is pointing down if possible. This will provide the best resistance to splashes and drips.

If Neptune offers a fittings kit, we would most likely carry this, but currently I don't have any info indicating we would be carrying BSPT fittings or unions outside of this. That said, I'm happy to bring this up with our product team to evaluate whether this is something we should start bringing in!
Have a great day!
The 1" flow monitor measures 4 1/4" and has a cord length of 16'. If you have any other questions, let us know!
