That monitor

Filled the fresh water. Topped it up. Topped it up again.

The monitor reads full for a fraction of a second and then drops down a notch to 2/3 full.

Water shot out of the little hole next to the water inlet all three times, but I still can't get a full reading.

I assume that the tank is full, but it still irks me.

Any ideas out there?

Re: That monitor

Hi: gbaglo...I believe the contact points of the level indicators, in the side wall of the freshwater tank, may be rusty. All 4 are usually just screws thru a wire connector and screwed into the wall of the tank, where the water can touch them. Might be a good place to put some S/S ones in. The top one might be too high also. Hope this helps... I could be "all wet" on this problem too!!! Alf
