Test for Pump Efficiency
1) Make sure needle valve on tester is wide open.
2) Run your system to its normal operating speed.
Note: GPM on flow meter
3) Slowly close needle valve on tester to system pressure.
(While under pressure note GPM) if system’s pressure is unknown, check with manufacturer
4) Take your GPM in Step 3 and divide it by GPM in Step 2.
This will tell you your pump’s efficiency.
Caution: DO NOT exceed manufacturer’s maximum pressure rating of pump.
