The Automatic water ballast meter is designed to make water filling simple. No more guesswork about how much water is in your wings! No more wasted water spilling out because you forgot to turn the hose or pump off when the wings were full! Using the Watermeter is really simple. Just connect to mains or water pump, set the number of litres you want to fill and press start. You will get an accurately metered dose of water, and then the water meter closes the valve and stops the pump automatically when you reach the water level you need, leaving you to spend time on other glider preparation.
Here is a short list of features and benefits which your new water ballast meter brings to you:
- Exact and quick setting of required amount of water ballast
- Easy recall of last few inserted values
- You can connect the device to water main supply or to a small external water pump
- The connected external water pump is being switched ON and OFF automatically when required amount is reached
- Easy calibration for accurate measuring even when using another measuring units than litres
- Water ballast meter can be customized to fit your preferred method of filling, using accessory kits available from IMI
You can get the water-meter as a single unit however it is better to acquire a whole set which contains all the pieces you need to get the system work.
There are two types of set which fully satisfy the most common arrangements. You can add some other stuff on top of the set. For example the wing holder which makes the filling even more convenient especially for gliders with filling holes on the top of the wing.
And if you think you need to add or remove something from the set do not hesitate to ask us.

Set WMS_C - Hose outlet with submersible pump
This set is intended to be choice of all the people who are using barrels rather than water mains. The barrels are supposed to be placed in the car or somewhere near by so 4 meter long feeder cable is provided. Part of the delivery is powerful submersible water pump with all the relevant attachements so the only thing you need to do is to plug the connector in the Watermeter and put the pump in the barrel. For a good reach a 12 meters long filling hose is provided.

- Feeder-cable 4m

The wing holder sticks the Watermeter on a glossy surface with four small suction-cups. It is ideal for gliders with filling holes on the top of the wing but it is really convenient for all the other situations where the Watermeter is placed near by the glider.
Apart of the Wing holder there are many other parts and bits for the Watermeter so you can simply create system which suits you the most.
Water Pump alone
This small and powerful submersible water-pump is able to deliver maximum flow of 19 litres per minute. It is the pump only – with bare cable and without any hose
Water Pump with fitting
This is exactly the same powerful submersible pump as above but it is provided with 3meters long cable and hose. (It does not have any hose-connector – sold separately if needed)
It is a Plug-and-Play feeder cable for the Watermeter available in two sizes – 4 or 12 meters.
Crystal-clear hose with 12mm/17mm inner/outer diameter – we will cut you the length you need.
Tap and hose connector
Tap connector ½ inch in combination with the click-on hose connector provides simple and reliable hose attachment.
Hose connector with control valve
This connector is usually put in place when the water main is used as a water source. The valve allows you to adjust the water flow easily while you are standing by the Watermeter so you don’t need to walk to the main tap.
