How can I measure the amps in the water caused by electric leakage



  • I need to measure the amps in the water. How can i do that? Please give me information about that. I can't find anything 😞



  • You need the sensor that measures water flow in electrical cables (gallons per minute in USA or litres per minute in Europe), but make sure you connect it the opposite way around or it won't work.



  • Well, theoretically speaking, you need to know resistance of the water tank, where leakage is occurring. Then you could measure voltage drop across it an divide it by the resistance of the water tank. Another method would be using a shunt between leaking conductor and the water, and measure voltage across it, respectively.

    REALISTICALLY, IF YOU HAVE MAINS VOLTAGE LEAKING INTO WATER, YOU DON'T TRY TO MEASURE IT, YOU TURN OFF POWER AND CALL AN ELECTRICIAN.

    If it's not mains voltage, well, you can try things.



  • @monte With so little info from the OP I think it is a troll.



  • @skywatch better safe than sorry 🙂
    I can imagine this question being ask completely seriously.
