So awhile back I came across these on Adafruit. http://www.adafruit.com/products/464 Not sure if it'd be too hard to use them in-sump and use the ATO pin to get the sensor value provided the tape has it's own 5v power with the ground tied into both correct. I know the current sensors seem to have issues with barometric pressure....just a thought.

I worked with the manufacturer of these a while ago. Even before I released the pressure sensor one.
The resolution I got was very inferior to pressure and water-proofing the circuit and mounting was an issue.

Well that bites.....what about ultrasonic Roberto? Have been thinking about this a few days now because of my 29BC.
