I wanted to make a Water level control sensor
but of non contact non Electronic & cheap one !
Took Plastic hand pump, Removed Rubber 'O' ring from the Piston
So now the piston moves freely without any friction
Cut liquid container and fixed with Epoxy in to Piston drilling a hole.
Ceramic magnet ( very light) sticked on the piston's top flange.
Reed switch fixed at the Top cover Nozzle side.
Now the Hand pump fixed up right So that Liquid container floats on
water and pushes the piston upwards as the level starts increasing.
When the piston goes fully upwards the magnet actuates the Reed switch
which ultimately cuts Off Motor Pump.
This costs me only Rs 40.
and it works smoothly !
No Electronics, No maintenance, No physical contact
No corrosion, No Cleaning of Electrode it's Amazing !
