Lawn Sprinkler Water Meter FAQs
A lawn sprinkler flow meter maintains specific environmental conditions for residential lawns and other grassy areas. Sprinkler flow meters can also be used in smart home applications to automate routines based on system flow rate requirements. By installing sprinkler flow sensors, water usage can be monitored and runoff reduced.
Upon installation, the sprinkler flow sensor measures irrigation flow to determine water speed through the system. The meter then sends this information to an irrigation controller, which can detect issues and conserve water. Suppose the water flow rate is too high. In that case, the flow meter sends a signal to the irrigation controller to take corrective measures, such as stopping the water flow, sounding an alarm, or sending an alert message.
With the help of flow sensor irrigation technology, you can efficiently monitor your irrigation system and identify any necessary adjustments or issues that need to be addressed.
- How much water have I used since the last irrigation?
- Is the system applying the right amount of water?
- Are there any changes in the flow rate during the season that I need to adjust to?
- Is the system flagging issues like clogs, leaks, or other problems?
The Rachio Lawn Sprinkler system supports up to two backflow preventers and one Rachio 3 controller. We recommend installing one flow meter per backflow preventer to ensure optimal function. Please note that the maximum number of backflow preventers allowed is two, with two Wireless Flow Meters and one Rachio 3.

Once you activate your Rachio Wireless Flow Meter, your Rachio app's home screen will display water usage in gallons or liters instead of minutes. You will receive an error message if the flow meter cannot read your system's flow rate or detect leaks. You will also receive a notification via email or the Rachio app if the flow meter fails to work.
The Rachio Wireless Flow Meter can alert you of high or low flow rates through email and the Rachio app. These notifications are available for both the Home screen and individual zones.
