Doubting Dual Moisture Sensor design...

While the design seems perfect, the implementation is not as I would expect...

Read about the sensor design here


I have a DIY Soil Moisture Sensor in a plant, and it currently reads a raw value of 429.

I plugged one of the two new DIY Dual Soil Moisture Sensors into the same pot, and it reads the top level as 36 and the bottom level as 656

The top level should be the same roughly as the single sensor...

I noticed this same behaviour on the first Dual Level sensor I put online about a week ago...

I will monitor them over the next bit, but I don't think they are working properly... I'll have to think on this one...
