MANUAL: SHO-FLOW®
Flow Indicator Operations
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Read instruction manual before use. Operation of this device without understanding the manual
and receiving proper training is a misuse of this equipment. A person who has not read and
understood all operating and safety instructions is not qualified to operate the SHO-FLOW®
flow indicator.
WARNING
This equipment is intended for use by trained personnel for firefighting. Their use for other
purposes may involve hazards not addressed by this manual. Seek appropriate guidance and
training to reduce risk of injury.
WARNING
WARNING
Nozzle must be properly connected. Mismatched or damaged threads may cause nozzle to leak
or uncouple under pressure and could cause injury.
CAUTION
Do not couple aluminum to brass. Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic corrosion
that can result in inability to unscrew threads or complete loss of thread engagement.
This instruction manual is intended to familiarize firefighters and maintenance personnel with the operation, servicing and
safety procedures associated with special purpose nozzles.
This manual should be kept available to all operating and maintenance personnel.

at all times.
2. It is your responsibility to read and understand any user’s instructions,
including purpose and limitations, provided with any piece of equipment
you may be called upon to use.
3. It is your responsibility to know that you have been properly trained in
Firefighting and /or Emergency Response and in the use, precautions, and
care of any equipment you may be called upon to use.
4. It is your responsibility to be in proper physical condition and to maintain

1.0 MEANING OF SAFETY SIGNAL WORDS
A safety related message is identified by a safety alert symbol and a signal word to indicate the level of risk involved with a particular
hazard. Per ANSI standard Z535.6-2006, the definitions of the four signal words are as follows:
DANGER
DANGER indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious
injury.
WARNING
WARNING indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious
injury.
CAUTION
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor
or moderate injury.
NOTICE
NOTICE is used to address practices not related to personal injury.
2.0 GENERAL INFORMATION
The Sho-Flow water flow indicator is designed for installation behind a nozzle or on the outlet of a pump panel to quickly determine
the flow present in the hose line and the pressure where the Sho-Flow is installed. Any firefighting, training, or testing operation that
utilizes hose lines or nozzles is a potential application for the Sho-Flow. The Sho-Flow will work best if the amount of turbulence
from elbows, valves, wyes, etc. is minimized both downstream and upstream of the unit, as with any flow measuring device.
The Sho-Flow is intended for use with water or solutions of water and foam concentrate. It is not intended for use with pure foam
concentrate, compressed air foam, hydrocarbons or other liquids. The Sho-Flow is not intended for continuous outdoor storage,
because direct sunlight may cause damage to the electronics. Extended storage in hot, or cold environments will shorten battery
life. An arrow indicates the direction of flow. Reverse installation will not damage the flow indicator but incorrect readings will
result.

4.0 OPERATION
1) Press ON/MODE button to turn on electronics.
2) Display will toggle between flow and pressure with a red or green light to indicate pressure or flow. Also while displaying flow,
numbers will flash.
3) Pressing the ON/MODE button for ~1 second will lock the display on flow. Pressing again will lock the display on pressure.
Pressing a third time will turn the unit off.
4) Anytime the pressure is less than 5 psi (0.5 bar) for 1 minute, the Sho-Flow flow indicator will automatically turn off.
5) If the display indicates “- - - -“, the flow is too low to be displayed.
6) The 1.5” Sho-Flow may be programmed to give an audible flow warning.
WARNING
WARNING
CAUTION
Kinks in supply hose may reduce water flow and cause injury or death to persons dependant
on water flow. When the SHO-FLOW is attached directly to a fixed supply, it is recommended
that an outlet elbow be used to minimize risk of hoseline kinks.
The Sho-Flow is not rated for use in explosive atmospheres.
The SHO-FLOW must be properly connected. Mismatched or damaged connectors may cause
leaking or uncoupling under pressure and could cause injury.
5.0 FLOW WARNING SET POINT PROGRAMMING - 1.5” VERSION
1) Press and hold the ON/MODE button for 30 seconds. Release when display shows dashes.
2) Adjust water flow to the desired low flow warning level. Display will indicate flow.
3) Press and hold ON/MODE button until (PSI) LED turns on. Release button.
4) (GPM) LED should now be blinking.
5) Adjust water flow to the desired high flow warning level. Display will indicate flow.
6) Press and hold ON/MODE button until (BAR) LED turns on. Release button.
7) Verify that display cycles through low flow and high flow warning set points.
8) Programming is complete.
If flow warning set points are programmed, display will cycle through low flow warning set point and then high flow warning set
point when unit is turned on.
If the flow warning set points are programmed, an alarm will sound during the following conditions:
Low Flow: Water flow is greater than the minimum rated flow of the device and less than the low flow set point
High Flow: Water flow is greater than the high flow set point
6.0 CHANGING BATTERY
When the battery power gets low the display indicates
“LO BATT” but continues to operate until dead.
Serial Number
Located on Back
1) Recommended battery: 9V lithium.
2) Alkaline batteries are acceptable, but battery life is
significantly less.
3) Using #2 Phillips screwdriver loosen screws. Pull lid at
finger pockets to remove.
4) Replace battery.
5) Replace lid, be sure not to pinch wires between lid and
case. Wires cannot be under battery.
6) Turn screws only until contact.

7.0 USE WITH SALT WATER
Use with salt water is permissible provided the SHO-FLOW flow indicator is thoroughly cleaned with fresh water after each use. The
service life of the SHO-FLOW may be shortened due to the effects of corrosion and is not covered under warranty.
7.1 CORROSION
All parts of the a SHO-FLOW flow indicator are aluminum hardcoat anodized for corrosion protection. The effects of corrosion can
be minimized by good maintenance practices. See Section 8.0 for maintenance.
8.0 MAINTENANCE
No maintenance is required. No calibration is required under normal circumstances. If unit becomes damaged and does not display
correct data, send it back to the factory for service.
CAUTION
CAUTION
Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic corrosion that can result in the inability
to unscrew the threads or complete loss of thread engagement over time. Per NFPA 1962 (1998
edition), if dissimilar metals are left coupled together an anti-corrosive lubricant should be applied
to the threads. Also the coupling should be disconnected and inspected at least quarterly.
Any alterations to the SHO-FLOW flow indicator and its markings could diminish safety and
constitutes a misuse of this product.
