Anyone good with electronics and built their own leak detector based on a barometer?  This looks like a good start;

Obviously in conjuntion with one of the vacuum systems.

Hi SwiftFF%,

yes, I saw that thread.  Not looking for an alarm that goes off when there is water inside.  More looking to build the equivalent to one of the other vacuum sensors on the market.  LED that goes green when you pull a vacuum down to say 800mBar, and red the vacuum starts to increase above 850mBar.

 

cheers
