Anybody have one of these?

If so, are they as good as the blurb makes out?

G'day Roachie,

A number of members in our club have fitted them. They are excellent. They hold their calibration and memory of tank contents when power is off, so you can shut everything down for storage and not have to reset/re-calibrate.

I have three, just need time to fit them.

Cheers

Frank, does that mean you have 3 pumps? My understanding of the product is that it needs to be placed downstream of the pump/s.

My van has 2 pumps....one for the potable water tank and the other pump for the 3 tanks that supply water to everywhere else. At most I would need only 2 devices for my 4 tanks..... But as another chap has mentioned, when you have 3 tanks supplying the main water, you know you're going to have to look for water to replenish, once you have depleted the first 2 tanks. So, his idea is that he really only needs one device, for his single potable water tank.

Roachie,

My understanding is they're sensitive enough to go on the suction side of the pump, so one for each tank. Two pumps with for one pump a valve to choose which tank to draw from.

G'day Bill,

I have fitted one of those to my van. Simply a matter of cutting the line between the tank and pump and installing the flow gauge.
You set the gauge with the amount of water held in the tank when full and as the water is used, the amount of litres remaining is displayed.
Placing it before the pump enables you to use mains connection to your van without affecting the accuracy of the gauge.

Knowing the remaining water available is a very handy piece of information.



On one of our trips, my mate thought he had plenty of water, not realizing his wife did a couple loads of hand washing and rinsing. He didn't fill up when I did and promptly ran out at our next camp.

A very good thing to have mate!

Hello Bill
I have one in my ulty.
I fitted it along with the 110 lt. tank.
It is accurate to the litre.
If you wish to get some good advice for your particular plumbing setup go to
https://www.topargee.com.au/h2f-rm-water-tank-gauge.html
and phone them up. The owner will put you right.
I bought mine direct from Topargee.
