A slightly different approach would be to place the barrel on an old digital bathroom scale and look at the weight of the barrel and the water it contains.

        Hello All:

        While this isn't about robotics, it does fall under automation and sensors. 

        I've installed a rain barrel in my back yard, and am trying to devise a solid way to measure how much water is in it. I'd like to do so by placing a pressure sensor at the barrel's bottom, then calculating depth based on pressure. Can anyone recommend a water pressure sensor, that can (1) be submerged, (2) run low level DC voltage and (3) provide a reading between the ranges of 1 and 1.1 ATM?

        Thanks guys.
