A friend on the Gold Coast has found some water flow meters in the US and has worked a bulk price sub $50 landed in Australia. Very useful if you think you may be using a lot of water and your tanks don't hold much! Have a look at the Flow Meter and here is a bit of flexibility in that it measures down to 1.5 litres per minute. I probably wouldn't do much if you run your drinking tap slowly, but for larger flows like the sink, basin or shower.

The flow meter is suggested to run for up to about two years on two AA batteries.

Hi John and also Heather.
Good to see you arrived home safe from Alice. This is a link to flow meters I found not sure if it's the same product. http://www.futurlec.com.au/Flow_Sensor.jsp

Hi Harry and Jan thinking I should give you a call. We made it home in four days from the Muster. Had a few visitors since too including two BTs travelling through. The drive was a bit hard with the winds at the time. Heather is still suffering from the concentrated travelling. Too many hours sitting at a time.

I wasn't all that concerned to fit a flow meter to ours as I know we can stretch the water out with ours pretty well and BTs work well with the tank by tank procedures. With smaller tank configurations though they could be interesting. Our tanks even last longer if I leave a fill tank tap open! Silly me, eh Les :-P

Hi John & Heather,
.....no need for a meter if you hook up to your neighbours tanks!
Did you prove your inlet tap left open was the issue?
