Title: Realtime Water Pressure Sensor?
Post by: WAstarita on June 26, 2017, 09:00:10 am
I wanted to be able to see my pressure at the filter at any given time.  I inherited a disastrous piping setup when I bought this house and I finally got around to digging up the pipes and redoing it (thanks unemployment!)

In any event the system primes and starts a million times faster but I'm concerned that the same issues are happening when I'm not around, the pressure drops to zero and it takes 20 minutes for it to reprime.  I was looking for something that gave a real-time output of the pressure.

I know you can use a pressure sensor to trigger at certain pressures but I was looking for something that would output the actual pressure whenever I wanted to see it.   Is anything available?  Right now I have a Hayward DE2420 Filter that has a 1/4 npt pressure fitting.  I'd be happy to cut into the piping and install that way if absolutely necessary  :'(

Thanks in advance
