- Where GPM is the gallons per minute
- X is 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?

**First, gather a 1 gallon bucket.**Place the gallon bucket under the water flow.

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

**Finally, calculate GPM.**Calculate the GPM using the formula above and the seconds from step 2.
