In addition to the measurement of electrical power use, Tesla also worked toward measuring liquid use either as a quantity or a velocity. His Flow-Meter, when inserted into a water or other fluid main, was a turbine-based device that measured a small portion of a large channel of fluid, which could then be used to calculate the complete usage.
