I have not, there’s something about being told I’m using their system wrong that triggers me to anger.

I could tell them how to build a better system tho. The front of the float valves need a place to secure the nose so it doesn’t float up allowing the system to fail.

That’s the main culprit for the systems issues it seems

Sticking a 3/8 id tube has fixed this issue for short term use. Monthly maintenance is also required by this I mean.

  • shut off valve for flow to trays

  • pull floats and clean all portions thoroughly

  • vacuum out trays of debris and fluids

  • wipe trays clean of any materials

  • replace floats inside trays and secure with 3/8” tubing so nose doesn’t float up

  • keep watch for next few hours for leaks

@peachfuzz I try to not even water. I’ve got everything but defoliating and harvest automated.

Seems floods are automated as well!

I work too much during spring and summer so I needed a way to not worry about the grow

So I taught myself how to program a monitoring system then built a auto doser into it

Couldn’t agree more! Always learning mainly from failure :relaxed:

When it takes you 2 weeks to diagnose the server migration was the cause for your doser to stop functioning properly and all you had to do was change 1 number in the up address

And that is exactly why I don’t even attempt to do what you have done. That would have set my anger issues in overdrive.

More head scratching. I did do a few stupid thing before figuring it out

  • turned system of and on ( my go to)
  • deleted the integration from the server (not smart)
  • checked file logs for node red, home assistant and not dosing system ( would of caught in the system logs of tasmota if I checked there)
  • forced it to operate from doser manually to make sure the pumps worked
  • initiated the system from tasmota side before server connects to it (worked fine)

Then I knew it was my server (home assistant) and tasmota (doser program) that weren’t responding so I deleted it from home assistant and rebuilt the integration….

During that process I noticed in the console it wasn’t able to connect to the server😌

Then I checked configuration and there it was…… and only I was to blame nothing else…

Sometimes in life things happen but usually there’s a culprit… usually me :wink:

I caught covid…. Been down for weeks over here shivering in bed… my fkn bones hurt!!! Stating to feel more like myself… finally

I did do some programming in the downtime and wrapped rh into the program to turn humidifier on/off or dehumidifier on/off depending on what information is fed into the system from monitoring system/ what I want setting to be. Kinda simple after doing an auto doser but I figured I did auto doser and hvac on so why not …
