    We just ordered our first version 1.5 to install in Arizona, this will be our first unit that is not 110. We are curious to see how it compares.

      How do I find the version#?
      I got my Phill in Dec. '07 and it requires a 240V (or 230V) outlet.
      So I might have Gen 1.5.
      I noticed it has a RS232 port, any idea if connecting a PC with hyper-terminal will give me any details?

      UPDATE:
      I looked at the label and the model# ends in '-G1.5', So I do have the new generation.
      here are some numbers I was monitoring with temp around 50F but do not know my inlet-pressure:
      on an empty tank the flow was: 1.1 scfm
      if the tank is full the flow was: 0.69 scfm

      This is straight flow, if you want to consider the entire pumping period you have to add 1/2h idle (drying cycle) for every 8h of pumping.
      Unfortunately this 1/2 h of idle time ALSO counts toward the 6000h pump life.

        I would suspect that, as with all such terminals, you would need the software in your laptop so that you could communicate with the Phill. I have it on good authority that Phill speaks Canadian. Damn hosers.

          Thanks for the info. How are you getting flow rates do you have a seperate gas meter? Any pictures of your install? I had a mini excel gas meter but it measured in metric and i was too lazy to do the math and it broke.

            If any one is interested in a gas meter contact me you will have to pick it up or pay for shipping.

              Yes, I do have a gasmeter installed. My installation looks similar to Holtek's.

              But there is a window above the meter and the supply gas line comes thru the wall to the meter.
              And I have a 'wind-up' timer installed to be able to turn off the unit after a certain time.
              When I have a chance I take a picture and post it.
