Cleaning Tank Watch Sensors

Peggy:

Being somewhat technically challenged, (Me , not you..) I want to be clear on one point.* Replacing the sensors with the Profile system does not require new wire runs as the old wiring will work. I assume that replacing the old panel (which* is in the head) with the new Profile panel is simply a matter of mounting the new panel and connecting the appropriate old wires. Am I correct?

BTW,* We are lucky to have you in this forum.

Cleaning Tank Watch Sensors

You are correct. If you have any problems or questions, call or email Dennis Ferriello: dennis@ferriellosales.com or by phone at (435) 656-0042. He's the only person I know who'll answer the phone at 7pm on a Sunday to help somebody with an installation problems.

And thank you for the kind words!

RE: Cleaning Tank Watch Sensors

Peggie:
You are correct, use of the existing wires is fine. Our system is low voltage 0-5 volts and our panel will read most senders on the market that either use 0-5 volts or 240-30 or 30-240 Ohms and also the long read senders on the market.
If I can be of help please let me know

My advice: replace the senders with the Profile system....senders never come in contact with tank contents. The existing wiring will work, so you only need to replace the senders and the panel...easy job. You can read all about 'em on these websites: http://ferriellosales.com/ http://www.newprovidencemarine.com/product.html
*I took your advise and* replaced my holding tank sensors (today!) with the Profile Solo. After pumping the head and setting the "Empty" light, I then filled the tank with water and set the "Full" light. I then pumped out the tank in 20 second bursts, checking the panel lights after each burst. Results? The Full, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 and empty lights lit as expected. What a great system!!! (And yes, the existing wiring worked like a charm.)

RE: Cleaning Tank Watch Sensors

Good to see you got it installed, Walt. It IS a great system! Mine have been accurate and trouble free since I installed them in July.

RE: Cleaning Tank Watch Sensors

I know you're kidding...there's nothing not to like on your boat, except for losing your FB on that low bridge. Other than that, it's great.

Like you, I buy these parts then contemplate the installation until I think I have it all figured out. Then when I start the job, something breaks or I find another issue and it's on to plan B. But I sure do love tinkering on my boat!

I'll let you know when I'm headed that way next. I enjoyed our time on the boat and the great dinner.
