SeeLevel Monitor

So I am seriously looking at the SeeLevel 709 - 2P monitor .. My issue is I only have a Fresh Water tank ... I have no Black or Grey tank .. as far as the Battery goes I have elected to go with the Victron Energy BMV-700 Battery Monitor .. so with all that being said .. the Fresh Water reading on the SeeLevel is the only information I am interested in .. my preference is a round gauge like what KUS offers .. but my fresh water tank configuration and location does not afford me the option of using their unit .. So any body have any ideas on how to modify the face plate of the seelevel .. I am trying to come up with a way to make it look professional clean and neat .. ?

I made a faceplate from an old dewalt tool case. The black was a matching color and texture of the material where I mounted it.

Mopeka makes a tank monitor that might be suitable.

Just buy the Bluetooth model and mount it down in the wetbay. I have been using it since 2017 like that. No interface to mess with. Just shows up on your phone or tablet as the range is further than most of my other BT devices. I know some folks that use the BMV-712 & Seelevel from a small tablet mounted on a bulkhead in the cabin. -Bill

All I could find on their site were propane monitors. I believe the OP is looking for a water tank monitor. -Bill

This is the water tank monitor,

If you have ready access to the bottom of the tank this might work for you. It does run on batteries, so access is important.

If you have 4 tanks and those tanks are enclosed, SeeLevel is probably cheaper and better.

Interesting, sticking it to the bottom of any of my tanks would be extremely difficult, if not actually close to impossible. Changing a battery in the future? -Bill
