Everything you need to know about the BarnTalk water meter and how it works!

How our Water Meters work:Rendering - Watermeter DN15

  1. The BarnTalk water meter is ultrasonic, which means no moving parts.  It measures flow in gallons.  The total life-time flow is shown on the meter itself and the value is sent on the wireless network to the gateway and then to the BarnTalk database in the cloud.
  2. The water meter reading updates every 20 minutes on the app to allow that 8-year battery. The app will show daily consumption on a weekly graph for the last 4 weeks. The graph also shows the 3-day rolling average.  There is a change in usage that compares the last 24 hours to the 3-day rolling average.

Where to Install BarnTalk Water Meters:Water Meter and Gateway (1)

  • Install the water meter either before or after the medicator.
  • BarnTalk water meters work best when positioned in straight sections of pipe of at least 12 inches.
  • Make sure the water meter is aligned in the correct direction with the flow of water.
  • Note: The BarnTalk GateWay can monitor water pressure by connecting a dry contact sensor to your current pressure switch.
