Anyone tried this to "fool" non-adjustable water level sensors?
My Samsung has an adjustable sensor, which I have long ago adjusted to provide a bit more water. nothing outlandish.
Recently I looked at a sensor in a Duet. It's non adjustable. It's my understanding that they all work on air pressure, so I figure that when the water travels up the hose, it compresses the air between the switch and the top of the column water. Wouldn't it make sense that if there was a longer hose, the increased volume would reduce the air pressure, thereby tricking the sensor into allowing more water before shutting off the water flow?? I need responses from someone who has tried this on ANY unit that has a non-adjustable sensor, as I can't play around with the Duet as it's my dad's and his weird about doing things outside of "the norm". If there is a way I can convince him it will work, prior to re-opening the unit, he just might go for it.
