RE: Tank Level monitors

Jay, we have sight tubes on all our tanks... water, fuel and waste. *And the water and fuel tubes are great. *Unfortunately the tubes on the waste tank are totally clouded and one can no longer see the levels.... We considered just changing the tubes, but thought maybe the exterior monitoring system might be easier as it is difficult to access the waste tank site tubes!

RE: Tank Level monitors

*** They are fine (actually great!) for water & fuel tanks but terrible for waste.

Except for a plastic tank and a flashlight , or feeling a flex tank, everything stinks at measuring a waste vtank.

Insteas of cleaning or replacing senders the simple use of a puff of air will clear the system , for a while.

*

If it mus be maintained , at least this is done remotely and cleanly.
