Default Water meter

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone knows of a small, food grade, high temp water meter. I want to use it to meter the water from my HLT to the mash tuns so I don't have to scoop really hot water out with a 3 quart measuring cup. I have the pump but I can't find a meter. Help!!!

You need a sight glass my friend... note the level it is and subtract how much you want to move out. Start the pump and stop when the level is down.
