Flow sensor wiring test?


#1

How can I verify that my flow sensor is wired correctly

At this time a simple way to verify it does not exist.

I can tell you that the logs indicate your sensor is reporting data, and the data looks good. That indicates to me that the wiring is correct.

A run reported 3.1 Gallons Per Minute. If that seems close to what you would expect then I would say the sensor as a whole is working correctly.

Ah thanx Holmes, I didn’t see where I could set that. I have the cst f10.

I verify tonight, those would be my drip zones and I have roughly 40 emitters on them mostly 2 gph, but it’s mixed, so I feel pretty good about that 3gpm value

Another test for accuracy you could run is to:

  1. Write down the gallons from your City Meter
  2. Write the gallons from the Water Use tab in the app
  3. Run a zone for a couple minutes
  4. Compare City Meter gallon change to Water Use gallon change.

If you have a sensor hooked up it should start using the flow sensor data in your Water Use report.

It’s technically comparing apples and oranges, but they should be fairly close.

Cheers,
Devin

Thanx, I feel pretty confident in the sensor, I just wanted to verify that the electrons were making into the cloud (god I hate that word)
