The Farmo Tank sensor rapid drop guide.

Guide to the actual volume of water lost when tanks of different diameter drop 10cm.

The Farmo Tank sensor rapid drop guide.

The Farmo Tank sensor can detect when your watertank level is dropping rapidly via the configurable parameters:

1. Period of time (eg.15, 30, 45, 60 mins etc)

2. Amount level drops in cm (eg. 10cm, 40 cm etc)

The actual volume of water lost depends on the diameter of the tank, so we have made up some tables to help calculate volume (litres) from a drop of 10cm in different sizes of popular rural tanks

Or you can calculate it yourself using the formula v= π r² h credited to Archimedes, the Greek inventor of war machines and mathematical formulas. Apparently he also developed the wordle or suduko of his time which was a challenge to calculate the number of cattle in the herd of the god of the sun.
