A totalization meter system for a water treatment device, the device having an inlet aperture and an outlet aperture, and a channel for channeling water between the inlet and outlet apertures. A flow reactive device is positioned in the channel and is exposed to the flowing water, and a signal generating member is positioned on the flow reactive device. A switch is positioned proximately to the flow reactive device, and is sensitive to the proximity of the signal Generating member. The switch is able to communicate electric signals indicative of the moti...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. A meter system for a water treatment device, the device having an inlet aperture and an outlet aperture, and a channel for channeling flowing water between the inlet and outlet apertures, the meter system comprising:a flow reactive device;a signal generating member causing said flow reactive device to produce a spatially varying signal in reaction to water flow;a sensor generating a flow signal corresponding to water flow in the channel;an output device for indicating when the water treatment device is usable; anda controlle...
