A new appliance for high rise hook ups is a Standpipe Flowmeter.

Used in place of an inline pressure gauge and elbow, the Standpipe Flowmeter shows precise flow and pressure readings when connected directly to the standpipe valve.

In this episode, Chris Martin reviews the operation of the Elkhart Brass Model 555A Standpipe Flowmeter and its application in high rise firefighting operations.
