Tubing for Grove Smart Plant Care Kit for Arduino

Post by cfrommeyer » Tue Apr 12, 2016 1:24 am

I am struggling to find vinyl tubing that will fit both the pump and the water flow sensor. I have found 5 different sizes of vinyl tubing. None of which would fit both the pump and the sensor. I have had it fit one or the other but not both. Please help me in the right direction.

Thank You.

Hi,

The tubing sizes for Water Pump and Water Flow sensor are different indeed.
We would suggest the customer to buy the proper tubes and a port transfer block in the local store.

Thanks

Thank you for a response. You mention a "port transfer block". I search for that directly on hardware websites as well as google and I am not finding anything that makes sense. Could you point me to an example on a site that I can review and use as context for finding one?
