    I use stopwatch & bucket method, it's accurate enough for the review.
    I have a clear container can hold up to 26L, it's all measured and marked the water levels on its side. I modded it to accept the fittings.

    Just fill it up with water to the level marked, then hook it up with the pump to calculate the pump absolute flows, then hook up the block to calculate the block flows. Use a digital timer to monitor the flow in one minute. In the end of the outlet line I have a ballvale to shut it off at one minute mark. I'm done this for 3 times then averaged out the results for the final measurement.

    I hope you can visuallize it, if not, when I have a chance. I can take the picture and show you?

    This is quick and simple, cheap setup gadget. But you can do it with more precise measurement then you have to use flowmeter intrument and this meter cost closely $150-$200

    wow very interesting indeed and yes i could roughly visualize it and it also seem safe enough to assume that this is a very accurate and primitive way of measuring.

    i can imagine the work area whilst you are testing it...must have been a hellva a mess huh?

    I think Deton's method is quite accurate. Simple, but accurate, considering he does it a few times and then averages the result. Keep in mind that is only to calculate flow, not temperatures; it's not used as the setup, it's just a standalone test to identify and verify flow volumes.

    Thanks guys!

    Yes, the test is only about 0.25 or 0.5L of error if I don't pay attention to the timer and the hand must be insynch with the timer, if I'm slow to shut off the vale then the measurement inaccurate. I'm kinda master how to do now

    I'll post pics of my hi-tech testing instruments tonight for your amusement. You guys will going to love it.

    Bully, I'm done all the tests in my wife laundry room sinks and I'm driving her crasy with all the tests. Hey we are dealing with water here so I like to keep it far far away from my computers as possible, trust me I did spill water over the place during the test.:$

    As promised; here are the pics of my hi-tech testing instruments

    Overview flow rates setup



    26L storage container got from Wal-Mart for under $10, water levels measured and marked.
    Three aquarium heaters are use for when I do radiator test....oh by the way the hand soap pump is behind the reservoir, it's not inside the res.



    Container modded to accept any 3/8" NTP thread fittings so I can use 3/8" or 1/2" bards. These fittings from HomeDepot for $2-$3 a piece.



    These are pressure gauges.
    The U-Tube Nanometer is good for low differential pressure measurement. The one in the picture is only 40cm tall, I have another one for 90cm tall. However, the MCP655 pump put the U-Tube gauge to shame thought. I use the low analouge pressure gauges whenever the U-Tube nanometer reached its max. I use the dail gauge more often than the U-Tube now.


    Well that's all folks, the only missing components in the pictures are power-bar, Kill-a-Watter meter. I just quickly assembled them together to take the picture. I usually dismantle them after every test that I finished or the wiffy will nagging:$

  9. The following user thanks Deton For this above post:

    They are not in the kitchen sinks, they are in the laundry room....when I first setup. She asked me what I was doing in there because I spent hours in the laundry room and she's keep hearing water running constantly so I told her that I was doing the laundry but for awhile she didn't buy it any more
