What does GPM mean?
GPM stands for "Gallons Per Minute." It is a unit of measurement used to quantify the flow rate of a liquid, specifically the number of gallons of liquid that pass through a particular point in a system or device in one minute.
GPM is commonly used to measure the flow of water in plumbing, irrigation systems, pumps, and other fluid-handling applications.
For example, if a water pump has a flow rate of 10 GPM, it means that the pump can deliver 10 gallons of water per minute.
GPM is an important parameter when designing and sizing systems that involve the transportation or distribution of liquids, as it helps determine the capacity and efficiency of pumps, pipes, and other components in the system.
