Here is the diagram of my well setup.http://gregorys.website/phidgets/WellDiagram.jpg
Another sensor that I could use is a Flow Meter.
The pipe going between my well and the pressure tank is 1.25in plastic pipe.
If I could place a flow meter, inline on that pipe, that could be connected to my phidget, then when the pump fails, I would detect a zero flow while the current detection would be true. Any sources for a flow meter?
Another option that I could use is place a tee in the water line to home and go up to the top of pressure tank, connecting it to a outlet on the top of tank.
That way it would be like a stand pipe for water level.
What kind of floating magnetic item could I place in a 1 inch plastic pipe?
What kind of sensor could I use on phidget to detect the position of this floating magnet?
It would be awesome to be able to always detect the water level in my pressure tank if there was a way.
The pressure tank is made of galvanized metal.
