In order to learn how this float sensor works some advance work needed to be done. I needed a container to hold the actual unit that was water tight and allowed for the container to be drained.
This build will allow for testing of a number of situations and help me gain a full understanding of how to use this sensor in aquaponic situations.
Next I needed to finish the build by adding a method to read the sensor and drain water from the container. So I added the following features to the float container. I will cover more on how the wiring works and what is needed to get a reading off the sensor soon.
Looking into the container you can see the drain hole, float and how they are positioned.
