A sight tube is our most popular method of knowing how much water is in your tank. It features a high-quality polyurethane tube that will resist sunlight discoloration. We weld two ¾” fittings into your tank – one at the bottom and one at the top. A ¾ three-way valve is installed in the bottom – a 90 at the top. The ¾ tube runs between the two. We install between 1 and 4 hold-down clamps depending on the height of your tank. These clamps secure the tube to the tank. Putting the three-way valve in one direction allows the water to fill the tube so that you can see the water level in the tank. Putting the valve in the other direction allows you to drain the tube. You don’t want to leave the water in the tube all the time. After you are done checking the level of the tank, you want to drain the tube and leave it empty.
(IMPORTANT) If you leave the water in the tube, it will quickly grow algae and turn green.
Our optional target gauge is the best method for knowing the water level in your tank from a distance. The target gauge gives you the water level of the tank at all times. It works on a pulley system with a stainless-steel float on the inside and a gauge board on the outside. The float and the gauge are attached with a high-quality stainless-steel cable. Two stainless steel stringers are attached to the inside of the tank. These two stringers keep the float lined up with the gauge. All the parts and pieces that are attached to the inside of the tank are made out of stainless steel. The gauge board on the outside is made from galvanized steel.
This optional device allows the user to see the level of their tank from the comfort of their homes. The desktop mount has an easy-to-use LCD touch screen to view the tank’s settings. The sensor inside of the tank is solar-powered and sends the information directly to the desk display (shown to the left). The device’s range is over half a mile, line of sight provides a maximum range.
