Water Flow Meter Mk. II

Further News:
Tried it out again today. Could see it ticking by no probs. Judged the flow meter at its pressure and flow rate to be down by 20%. So every 1 litre pumped into a bucket would only report 0.8 litres on the Arduino  This is easily remedied in the Arduino sketch. These flow meters are inaccurate but you can do some controlled tests to improve the accuracy at a certain pressure of water. How much water did I pump you say? Well…… I went a bit low in the tank and sucked up a heap of gunk! The pump loves it but the water flow meter did not. Nothing I did could get it going again. So! Version 3 will require a filter 🙂
