External holding tank sender

Hey All,


I've seen a few posts in the past for a holding tank monitor system that attaches to the outside of the tank but I can't recall the brand. I looked on the googlie but didn't see it. Anyone got a link?


Thanks,
Doug

Ferriello is a great guy, I had one of his in-tank solutions. The side-of-the-tank unit only works on plastic tanks IIRC.

I recently installed a SCAD monitor:

Went in easy. Time will show longevity.

SCAD is a private label brand of the Profile systems...ferriellosales.com is the mfr, who sells direct for a lower price. If you're replacing a SeaLand TankWatch, the wiring for it will work with the Profile gauges.

Look up SensaTank. I have one on my Grand Banks 42. Practical Sailor gives it a top review too. Great tech support. Works on plastic tanks only. Online prices are good too.

Peggie,

Indeed. True that. Looks like $40 less than I paid!

Raritan also make one - has worked well for many years until I accidentally destroyed the tank monitor kit getting a battery out - just in the process of buying a replacement kit from our local distributor.

I also recently installed the SCAD external sensor to replace a problematic dip tube setup. My only issue has been calibration, I screwed it up the first few empty/full cycles. If you read the manual, youíll be fine. If you leave the manual at home and try to remember what button calibrates what from memory, well I will and did screw that up every time!

My only other comment on the SCAD system is the calibration/setup buttons. I wish they were harder to get to. My 5 and 7 year old have tiny cute fingers that can push them really easily. Even though weíve talked to them about what not to push, sometimes little fingers just canít resist!

You are better off buying the SCAD system directly from Bill Ferriello. He provides outstanding personal service and you save a few bucks too.

I have my Black Water going into a fiberglass tank.
Currently, the boat is set up with float switches (3 of them) to monitor low, medium and high levels but they get stuck sometimes.
Any thoughts on an better system to monitor the level?
Thank you,
Taras

The Profile system Profile Tank Monitors has senders for all tank materials.

And btw, Cal...Feriello's first name is Dennis.

I was looking at gobius and noticed they have a new model, named gobius pro with a very interesting feature. Senders have Bluetooth feature that allow to monitor directly from a phone or tablet. Makes the install even easier.
