Hi Rusty;
When I had the mag tube measuring flow rates, I neglected to measure the
minimum flow rate, but I did measure the current draw at .2 amps at min
flow. This is with cold well water in the system. As the sensor heats up
flow rate will increase.
I should have measured flowrate increase from min to max by putting the
sensor in a pot of cold water and bringing to a boil. This would have been
interesting. Unfortunately at this time I'm more interested in moving
forward with the installation and getting in the air.

Thanx. Due to environmental conditions up here, I wanted to have it painted
before leaving it outdoors, and I felt I should do it right, cause if I
don't have time to do it right the first time, when will I have time to do
it right the second time?

I've had a little. Enough to know that I'm gonna love it!
