Hi my name is darren i am a owner of a plumbing company called d.m.s plumbing in south africa. i would like to know if there is a device which enables plumbers to determine the flow of water in a pipe, if the source of it is unknown.

Simple you have two possibilities

1- Get the size of the pipe and the pressure and from these you can find the GPM flow and the Velocity in FPS

2- Hook up a water meter and let the water run full blast for one minute and then read the gallon or cubic foot reading

The 1st way is the easiest. If you send my the pipe size IN INCHES and average pressure ILL give you your gpm flow rate and velocity just send me an E mail no problem
