CS34 Tank Monitor Sensors

Decided to take a break from the head situation and install the tank monitoring sensors.

The system consists of a pushbutton control panel with three remote sensors:
  • Port freshwater tank
  • Starboard freshwater tank
  • Blackwater tank (sewage)
The sensors just peel and stick to the tank.  I did the two freshwater tanks.

Port tank
I measured the 4/4,  3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 positions on the tank, and cleaned the surface with isopropyl alcohol before peeling and sticking the sensors in place.

Works great!  VERY simple install.

Still have to do the blackwater tank, run the wires, and mount the control panel.

Will be nice to know at the push of a button the levels on the three tanks!

Tank 1 (starboard tank) shows 3/4

Sure enough

Checking the freshwater tanks was a PITA because you had lift FOUR cushions out of the way then lift a large piece of plywood to see the levels.

  1. Nice blog! This post beyond my expectation for sharing good content about leak detection. I also found a Remote tank monitoring device for using in my house and industry. A few days ago I have found LevelPro Sentinel Remote Tank Level Monitoring in online and I think it's one of the best sensor. It's hassle free and very user friendly device. Know full details about this device you can visit Icon Process Controls website: https://iconprocon.com/product/sentinel-remote-tank-monitoring/
