From time to time the signal of the Sonic Watchman Signal can cut out. For example, this can happen in a power cut when the tank has been topped up or due to bad weather. This is indicated by an Exclamation Triangle with no bars displayed. First of all, it’s best not to panic this can simply be down the receiver plug losing connection to the gauge or alarm unit on the tank. The gauge will attempt to reconnect automatically.
The warranty period on a watchman oil level monitor is 12 months. In order to find out if your unit is still under warranty look on the back of the receiver for a 6 digit number. This can be found underneath the Part No. “A45-2817” is an example of what this might look like. The last 4 digits depict the month and year that it was issued. If the current date is within 12 months of that printed on your receiver then you should contact email@example.com or call 028 3836 4415. Otherwise, we will be happy to help!
If the gauge does not reconnect automatically then follow these troubleshooting steps! This means the Sonic Gauge will stop reading the oil level of the oil tank. There are a few simple steps to re-calibrate.
If an incorrect level is being shown on your oil monitor then it’s worth checking that you have measured the height of your sensor against the tank correctly. 3 Metres is the maximum height for the sensor from the base of the tank. Make sure that you are only measuring the internal depth of the tank. Do not include the outer skin of bunded tanks in your measurement and take the measurement from no lower than the maximum fill level of your tank.
