To demonstrate our project we have made a sink and tap. This is purely just to show how we have used an Arduino and flow sensor to measure the flow of water passing through a system. Our product could be connected to a shower, toilet, etc.
We have come across some issues for example if we were to have an actual tap the build up of pressure would brake the pump. So we have decided to go with a copper pipe, which will allow the water for flow freely.
Another problem we have had to face are connecting the pipes to the flow sensor, pump and copper pipe. However we managed to find a 1/2″ to 8mm coupler and piping to set it up.
