    Kc10 drum sensors

    Anybody got any knowledge on sensors,mine are mounted in tubes on outside 1 for flushing and 1 for low water and 1 in another tube which can operater a top up valve if fitted, according to instructions a red led should be on while water in front.ive got 2 kc10 drums and on one i cant get any sensors to light up and the other if the flushing sensor is lit it constantly flushes even though water level above it.and if i leave this light on and get low level sensor lit, it knocks flushing light off,its doing my head in.and means drums arnt cleaning properly. Andi

    Sorry Andi, it doesn’t look like anything I have on my drum. Mines just a simple float type sensor, single prong.
    Maybe a question for the manufacturer? Or the dealer you bought it from?

    My drum has a three probe sensor - One short one long and the other half way between. The longest probe is the common (probably 0v) the shorter of the other two triggers the flush when it leaves the water and the second if it leaves the water turns all the pumps off. Not sure how yours works though - could be a similar process??

    Or later models - yours looks as though it would actually cost more to make.
