  • I’ve been wanting to put one of these in a 3.75" tube to measure the level of a cistern… but I get readings from the side of the tube (it’s about 2 yards long before you get to the actual tank). Even though the beam looks like it can handle that but I’m not sure if I’m missing anything….?

    Also, I’m going to try this if no one has experience, but would putting the sensor in water kill it? (just the black round sensor part… not the breadboard part). It wouldn’t be completely underwater, more just splashed while they’re filling the cistern.

No public wish lists :(
