    Hi all , does anyone know the actual internal diameters of the three flow sensors available ? I ordered a pair of 5000 gph ones to fit to 1" pvc pipe but the new pump is actually 1.25" , would they still work or do I have to step up to the 9000 gph unit?

    FYI, Vinny responded to this, the 9000 GPM sensor is 0.75" ID and the 5000GPM unit is around 0.50" .

    Hi Guys, Vinny and the crew! I'd like to thank you guys for you stellar service and support for you great products!! I’d also like to suggest (request) that you include the necessary PVC fittings for the flow sensors as the required size doesn’t seem to be readily available.

    I've searched for the correct pvc fittings and am having trouble finding them also. (5000 l/h model PL-0867)
    If anyone knows where to purchase them, could you please provide a link.
    Thanks very much, David

    Keep in mind that the 5000 l/h - PL-0867 requires 1/2" collar ends.

    You'll need a pair of 0.5" 20mm union nuts and 0.5" 20mm collar ends, found at Royal Exclusive.

    As someone once said " necessity is the mother of invention " , the larger is 1.25" and the smaller 0.5" .

    Are those just 1.25" female NPT x slip adapters that you have screwed on to the end of the sensor? I did try to screw a 1.25" adapter on to the end, and it didn't fit, so wondering what you used?

    I am not sure I understand what you are suggesting? Would it be possible to tell me what actual part number those adapters are?

    It seems counter productive to restrict the flow to measure it :(

    I already removed the label sorry, but I'm going to get another pair for my second sensor this week I'll post a pic then.
