Enter the total number of seconds it takes to fill a 1-gallon container into the calculator to determine the gallons per minute.

## GPM Formula

The following formula is used to calculate gallons per minute.

GPM = 60 / X
• Where GPM is the gallons per minute
• X is the number of seconds it takes to fill one gallon

To calculate gallons per minute, simply divide 60 by the number of seconds it takes to fill one gallon.

## GPM Definition

GPM is defined as the rate of flow of water in gallons per minute.

## GPM Example

How to calculate GPM?

1. First, gather a 1 gallon bucket.

Place the gallon bucket under the water flow.

2. Next, measure the time it takes to fill.

Using a stop watch, measure the time it takes to fill the bucket.

3. Finally, calculate GPM.

Calculate the GPM using the formula above and the seconds from step 2.
