Wireless Water Level Sensing Rain Barrel

Posted August 3, 2015 by Chris

"We’ve had a couple of rain barrels for several years. At our old house they were mainly used as a source of water for our garden. At the new house, we have much more of a problem with puddles around the house, so the rain barrels are an important buffer for managing the water from large storms. So rather than keeping the rain barrels full all the time, we now want to make sure the barrels are empty before a big rain. This obviously calls for some type of automation system! "
