    Nice instructable !Even if ESP8266 are interesting (and cheap) devices to make cheap network sensors ("IoT" devices), I thinks it's healthier to use wired devices: less electromagnetic waves in the air, and in our brains ...Thanks for sharing this good example !

    Rainwater Toilet Flush

    Great instructables, thanks for sharing this !I made such a system 4 years ago: I already had 3600 liters tank to water my garden and solar panel and batteries for another usage, so I only considered the cost of bringing water to the toilets.First I measured the water used in the toilets: 2 adults and 2 (very young boys): 30 l. a day (here, 1m3 costs 3.2 Euros): 35 euros per year ! To measure this I placed a flow sensor wired to an arduino/raspberry pi. Water cosumption is logged in a DB and graphed using some php scripts.The complete system: pressure diaphragm pump (12v), pvc tube, new toilet flush, water connectors: cost 89 Euros, so it was ok if the whole system work for more than 3 years. During the last winter, my pump froze ... I had to buy another one (15 euros)...

During the last winter, my pump froze ... I had to buy another one (15 euros)... And finally, last month I had my last 94th euro refunded ! Now water in the toilets are "free".

    I omitted: The more money I saved is because with rain water you don't have to use anti limestone product (where we live the water is very "hard"), and other type of chemical product to clean your toilets. I simply add some chlorine in the water tanks (to avoid algaes, bacterias, ...), and I use a very small amount of cleaning product to clean my toilets. Saved money: something like 2 euros a month.

  • Computer Fan Speed Modifier (in Under 30 Minutes)

    Marvelous !I own a big gigabit switch for which I changed the fans that were too noisy. With the new fans, the air flow is good, but the router go in safe mode and logs an error such as "low speed fan".I was thinking to do the same thing you did in order to let think the switch the fans were running at the right speed: so thanks a lot for sharing this project !

    Arduino Bottlefiller

    Thanks for sharing this good design !I thought of such a machine but was wondering how to detect when a bottle is full. How did you choose the electrodes material ? Did the beer got a metallic taste or is it safe ?
