It compiled now.

I had all that stuff at the bottom too, but there is always stuff running down there.
I pay attention to what's in the bar,

I'm going to upload it now and see how it works.

It uploaded and either it's not working properly or it;s not working because my pumps are coded to run at 30% at night.

Both the portal and Android show the pumps running at 29% rather than the 30 they are coded at during the night.

I tried it with an offset of 85% and then 50% and both the same results.

Is it because of this line of code....

Code: Select all
} else if (now()%SECS_PER_DAY<43200 || now()%SECS_PER_DAY>=79200) { // 12pm / 10pm
  // Night mode (go to 30%)


that puts it at 30% between 10pm and noon.

If so why is it at 29% and not 30%?

Thanks;

I've also noticed that other readings are off.

The main WL sensor is reading 29% where it would normally be 32% where the water level in the sump sits now.

Also the multi WL sensors are not reporting now.

Can you try with Roberto's dev library and see if it's the same?

One reason it could say 29% instead of 30% is that everything is high resolution now. So there may be some rounding issues somewhere. As far as the WL, I don't believe any of that has been touched... I dont' recall seeing any commits that would change that.

Also try with the offset set to 100. That would be 100% and should have no change on what your pumps were at.

Finally one other thing to try is to run the wizard and just set a generic code (without all the random stuff and things we have in yours...) to see what the result is...

Pumps are not high resolution. But I always see 29 instead of 30 on mine too. Maybe there is an off by 1 error somewhere in dev.

I tried Robertos Dev Code and got the same issues.
29% of ump speeds and main WL sensor.
The Multi WL is not displaying.

Obviously I had to pull the offset out to use Roberto's libraries, but I did try it at 100% before switching to his libraries and it still showed 29%.

I haven't tried an INO from the wizard yet.

The wife it bugging me to look at the pool pump.

Wait, so you set it to 100 and it shows 29? I thought it was showing 29 when you set it to 30.

The offset of the pumps speed is set to 100% or no offset as opposed to 50% (half speed).

The 30% is what the pump is running at.
It supposed to run at 30% over night and it is running at 29%.
