Thread: Water Temperature Sensor

    Water Temperature Sensor

    With a little too much time on my hands, I was thinking about automating solar heat collection for the pool. I've browsed a bit, including this thread:

    diy-automated-controls-advice-solicited-t5708-80.html

    In putting together a parts list, I know I'm going to need to add a water temperature sensor

    and I just wanted to get a reality check:

    So I'm supposed to drill into a perfectly good piece of PVC, and the O-ring and clamp are going to hold the thermistor against a curved piece of pipe, right? Somehow, I'd feel better if I could find a flat section, but I'm trying to get my mind around how this is supposed to work.

    Yes, that is the way they are designed to be installed.

    Photos and updates at the end of next week. Planning on automating a loop with pump run and solar heating for the pool.
