An Attempt At A Christmas-Tree Water-Level Sensor

Posted December 23, 2013 by Chris

"We have a very nice Christmas-tree stand: it’s a tall, heavy, cast-iron chunk that does a wonderful job of holding our tree up. The problem is that it’s difficult to determine how much water is in the stand, or whether the tree is getting any water at all. Occasionally our tree will drop all its needles, or spontaneously combust, at which point it becomes obvious that the tree needed more water; but it’d be nice to have some earlier indicator."
