Title: A METERING APPARATUS FOR AN AUTO-SHUT OFF ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a metering apparatus for an auto-shut off assembly capable of measuring the total amount of water that has passed through the water treatment system. According to a first aspect disclosed is an apparatus (100) for providing automatic shut off mechanism in a fluid treatment system, said apparatus comprising: i. a member (1) housable inside a chamber (30) of the fluid treatment system adapted to contain a fluid, where said member is capable of moving in a reciprocating motion in response to the rise and fall of the fluid level of said fluid; ii. a clockwork mechanism (25) regulated by an escapement mechanism (35); wherein the escapement mechanism (35) is coupled to the member (1) for setting the clockwork mechanism (25) in motion as a function of the reciprocating motion of the member (1); and, iii. an arm (17) comprising a plug means or connectable to a plug means (18) wherein the arm (17) is operatively coupled to the clockwork mechanism (25) for intermittently progressing the arm along a path which drives the plug means towards an outlet or inlet of the fluid treatment system thereby shutting off the flow of water.
