Re: How to log the water level in a well pipe

Usually with these kinds of setup, 'straight' linearity is assumed between the lowest and highest expected values by calibration. And also, how accurate do you need that level, probably not to 0.1 mm I would expect? :D

Re: How to log the water level in a well pipe

Well, that ~1 meter of water is only going to compress for the length of the water inside the pipe, I would think, so if you would have 2 meters of water that would increase the pressure with 2x 1.4223 = 2.8446 psi. Doesn't look problematic to me when added to the base 15 psi. That also explains the...

According to Google, 1 meter of water causes a pressure of 1.4223 psi, so according to that a device that handles 0-30 psi, when the base pressure is 15, should be more than fine for your range, IMHO.

Re: between 2 esp

Theoretically you could set up a serial connection between 2 ESP's, but I don't think that is going to be easy.

CAUTION: be aware that the Sonoff 4CH R3 is not safe to wire anything external onto, as the unit is directly connected to mains power, making it potentially very (electrically) dangerous.
