FM-2: Filter Monitor with Volumizer
FM-2 Flow Sensor The silver disc in the photo above is the LED Faucet Indicator Disc (part FMD-1). This disc sits at the base of a filter faucet and will display a green, yellow or red light every time the water runs, indicating that the filter is good, should be changed soon, or should be changed immediately. ............................................................ The FM-2 also includes a flow sensor (FMS-2) that can be easily attached to the product water line. The flow sensor is used behind the scenes to measure the volume and to operate the LED faucet indicator disc.

The Filter Monitor is an innovative system to alert when a filter needs to be changed via color-coded lights at the base of the faucet. The battery-powered FM-2 has five timers for a 5-stage system, as well as a water volumizer and programmable set-points and alarms for each function, all in a crisp, attractive housing.
