I can't speak to the types of flow monitors that are inexpensive, etc.  Whe
n we had to comply with this, the HVAC shop used Airguard monitors.  A bulk
 discount was helpful as we had to install over 250 monitors.

The regulation of which you speak (I think) is applicable in California, pr
omulgated by Cal/OSHA in 2007, compliance required by 2008.  It applies to 
both old and new fume hoods.  Your mileage may vary, if you aren't in Calif

Does anyone have an inexpensive solution for adding an air flow monitor
to older fume hoods?  Is it now law that every fume hood (old and new)
have one?
