How To Install A Fill-Rite 800 Series Mechanical Meter On A Pump

Six steps is all it'll take to get this meter ready to give you readings.

So you need to install a Fill-Rite 800 Series Mechanical Meter to a pump? We can help walk you through that, but there's a few things we need to cover first.

The steps listed numerically below are taken from the video linked above, which the meter is installed on a H-Series pump.  Depending on the model you purchased, you may need to purchase the following items to complete installation:

  • O-Ring
  • Two fasteners
  • Flange
  • 1" pipe nipple

Also, be sure check the back of the pump and find the arrow to signify flow direction. Based on your system, the ports can be rotated to match your system of flow. Like the video linked above, we will be basing these instructions on a left to right flow.

With all of that out of the way, here are the assembly instructions:

  1. Remove both port plugs from the meter
  2. Ensure the o-ring from the Fill-Rite meter flange kit is seated in the groove around the meter's inlet port
  3. Attach the meter flange to the inlet port of the meter with the provided fasteners
  4. Apply thread sealant to both ends of the pipe nipple and thread it into the outlet port of the pump you are using. Use a pipe wrench to go 1.5 to 3 turns past hand tight.
  5. Screw the meter assembly onto the pipe nipple. Hand tighten, then use pipe wrench to tighten securely.
  6. Install remaining accessories
