    Itís actually a pretty good idea. Itís standard practice in industries that use fluid filters to have some sort of gauge to monitor the effectiveness of the filter. Changing it periodically involves a bit of guesswork really and more often than not youíd be either under utilising the filter (which obviously isnít cost effective) or leaving it in place too long which can have an effect on the machine.

    OMG.

    Looks like something that belongs to the coffee-geeks, not snobs, ha ha ha!

    Once the TDS modules, flow meter, and the temperature sensor have given enough data to the ESP32 dev board for long enough, the user can confirm that indeed filter changing routine is needed. As before.

    Now the user can go back to regular filter changes and turn his/her attention to the quantum mechanics of coffee extraction, molecular biology of taste buds and the effects of gravitational waves on tamping pressure.

    Sorry, just being silly. Nice rig for a geek, but far too technical for me!

    To be fair itís probably more for a commercial operation than a home set up.

    I'm in for better diagnostics of my water, but this does seem too cumbersome for me to bother with.

    If a reasonably priced solution came to market that was easy to use, I'd be on it.
