Large Scale Water Level Indicator Answered
Hey everyone, I hope im posting this in the right spot. I run a large farming operation and get my water from a well that pumps into a large storage tank about 10 feet deep and 6ft diameter. Because the well is very old I'm not able to add things like a float that will turn it on or off for me so I'm constantly having to check the well though out the day and if the cows are more thirsty one day they can drink the storage tank dry and that causes me problems with my pump, or if i leave it to long it will overflow and it makes a terrible mess.
So im wondering if there is a way that I can wire up a water level indicator in the well-house and have a light board in my house that shows me the level of the well. So for a 10 ft deep well id have an led light for every 1ft or so and when the water level gets to the top foot a buzzer would go off and when it hits the bottom foot or 2 ft then a buzzer would go off. Ideally a wireless transmitting to the house would be best but I have no idea how that could work. And wired would be hard with the well house being a few hundred feet away from my house. I've done a lot of googling and haven't found anything that would suite a large scale water tank like this. I purely want to be able to see in my house where the water level is and have it warn me when its too high or too low. I apologize since i don't have a lot of experience in electronics. Any help is greatly appreciated as i have no idea where to start or if its even possible. Thanks guys!
