View Full Version : Holding Tank Level Monitor

07-16-2013, 12:14 PM
My houseboat has a plastic black water tank. The boat is a pontoon style. The holding tank is mounted under the main floor deck, but above the lake water. I want to add tank monitor and am considering the externally mounted type of sensor that uses foil strips to read the tank level. (I am looking at the SCAD 10018 model). My question is: Does anyone know if these sensors can be installed in this environment - exposed to weather, etc. where they will get wet at times?

Ask the manufacturer

Due to location of my tank, they recommended an "in-tank" sensor.

It was macerator pump, but all is gone now. Getting ready to put the c-head. Did not like that set up. It is heavy fine in FL if they find out that the valve is not secure.. Thanks all
