Ways to Use a Hose Water Meter

  1. Watering Plants and Shrubs — Too much water can severely damage plants and eventually kill them.  Use a water meter to measure and track exactly how much water you are giving each plant, tree and shrub.
  2. Fish Ponds and Water Gardens — Use a water meter to accurately mix and measure water and conditioning chemicals to help you get the chemistry in your fish pond right every time.
  3. Washing the Car — See exactly how many gallons of water you are using when washing the car.  When you are not spraying, the water meter nozzle turns off automatically to conserve water.
  4. Lawn Sprinklers — Instead of using a clock to guess how much water your lawn sprinkler is delivering to your lawn, a water meter gives you an accurate reading in gallons.
  5. During Water Shortages — If your community is rationing water, a water meter lets you track the amount of water you are using and help to reduce waste.



Conserving water and reducing your water bill is easier when you know exactly how much water you are using. A water meter for faucets or a handheld water meter sprayer shows you how much water is flowing out of your garden hose onto your plants, lawn or car so you can be more conscientious about your water consumption.
