I installed my Flo a week ago and wanted to share a few things I learned. I installed it vertically. The water meter is below it so it appears upside down.
My pipes are 1" nominal (1.125" outside diameter). The most time consuming part of the installation was finding the right fitting to use. I ended up using two Nibco C604 fittings (1.125" inside diameter sweat connection on one side, 3/4" male pipe thread on the other side). I bought them at Menards (SKU 6871287) for $9.48 each. Lowe's also sells them. Home Depot does not.
The rest of the installation went normally and I was happy until I noticed a leak at both threads. I didn't use enough teflon tape and had to redo both joints. 8 turns did the trick.
