I want to monitor the water pressure from our well.
Although it doesn't change my answer, I am curious what you are really asking:
I don't really see how a well has water pressure
To see the pressure falling and no usage (overnight for instance) suggests a small hole so we can get repairs before being totally out of water one day.
Hi, I want to monitor the water pressure from our well. The sensors on Amazon have a pretty bad rap for only working a short time with water. My guess is that the sensing diaphram is not isolated from the water and corrodes easily. Justa guess though.Mouser and Digikey want $140++ for sensors that look very similar but are probably actually designed to work with water, but that's not going to happen here.I am wondering about an oil pressure sender unit for a car/truck as they may be made of sterner stuff and they are well under 20-bucks.Question: Anyone know what data output they have? I can't even find how many wires they have to see if it is voltage-ref, resistance-change or what.Thanks
