IocTober Day 4 - Solar water heater temperature monitoring

We have a solar hot water heater with a gas backup. I always wondered how much effort the solar part contributed in winter.

Well, the answer turned out to be “none” because the circulation pump had failed (again), by virtue of fitting a temperature probe under the insulation of the pipework.

If you have refrigerators, wine cellars, water heaters or anything where you need to monitor temperature, it’s so easy it’s almost criminal. There are only two components on this stacking module we designed to allow easy connection of waterproof temperature probes that can monitor temperatures read from -55°C to +125°C.

Know the temperature of your pool on your phone, so you don’t even have to get up to say, for (incredibly realistic) example “no, Miss 11, you can not go swimming yet, its 14 degrees in the pool. Say it with me NO VEM BER.”
