My new Rite Fill flow meter to the rescue for past 6 days

Subject: My new Rite Fill flow meter to the rescue for past 6 days

My new Rite Fill flow meter installed to measure the amount of raw sea water being pulled to the toilet displayed 21.6 gallons after 6 days of boating with 3 and sometimes 4 people onboard.

My holding tank is but 30 gallons so the 21.6 readout tells me it's time to pump out before our next trip. Since my next fuel top up is weeks away the flow meter readout tells me I should not wait until my next fuel top up.

IMO, this flow meter has done it's job in informing me to pump out rather than simply doing it each time I fuel up and for avoiding a nasty cleanup mess having the holding tank overflow.

This is the unit I purchased/installed .. Fill-Rite TT10ANC 2-35 GPM Inline Digital Turbine Fuel Meter

When I was in buying mode I placed this item in my Cart and waited a day to make my mind up. When I placed it in my cart it was around $160..... However, next day I noticed Amazon had increased the price to $220.... They new I wanted it... :lol:

So my advice is that if you're serious about buying the flow meter then buy it at the today's price of $158.61.

Good luck.
