Description for OEM 7000

Overview

The OEM Rocket 7000 system is an electronic gauge that accurately and reliably measures the fuel level in your oil tank and transmits that information to a wireless receiver located in a convenient place in your home!

Features

  • Don't Run Out Again! Can prevent running out of oil during periods of heavy or unusual usage pattern, even if you have automatic delivery!
  • Eliminates the need to go down into the basement or outside to determine oil level. Simply monitor the Receiver LCD from within the comfort of your home!
  • Installs in less than 10 minutes!
  • More accurate and reliable than a mechanical float gauge
  • Suitable for both inside or outside tanks
  • Replaceable Lithium cell Transmitter battery lasts over 10 years.
  • Multiple receivers can be set up to receive from one transmitter
  • The omni-directional Transmitter allows the receiver(s) to be located anywhere within 150 ft of the transmitter.
  • Simple DIP switch settings allow one product to work on tanks up to 10 ft (3m) in height.
  • Multiple Transmitter/Receiver pairs can be colocated without interfering.
  • Automatic recovery following power outage - no need to re-synchronize receiver to transmitter.
Operation
  • The Transmitter is mounted in an available opening in the tank and uses ultrasonic technology to measure the fuel level.
  • The Receiver plugs directly into a 110v outlet located in a convenient place in your home - usually the kitchen.
  • The LCD display on the Receiver displays the oil level as "bars", where each bar represents approximately 10% of the tank's capacity.
  • When the level goes below 20%, the fuel oil Nozzle "icon" appears in the LCD display, indicating that it is time to call for fuel delivery. Note: If you have an "automatic delivery" contract with your oil dealer, you should wait until the level drops to about 10% before alerting the dealer to your oil level status.
  • When the oil level drops below 10% of the tank's capacity, the red LED will begin flashing continuously and a audible signal will sound once every hour. Call your oil company immediately to schedule a delivery. These warning signals will continue until the first measurement is made following an oil delivery (this could take up to one hour after the delivery).

                    I bought and installed this gauge to supplement the quite inaccurate gauge that was installed when I had a new 275 Gallon tank installed in my basement last year. the tank contractor even replaced the original gauge, but it was just as bad. Installing this was very easy, and the hardest part was removing the 2 inch plug on top of the tank. So far, it has been accurate from a full tank down to half tank, and I am hoping that it is accurate at 1/4 tank and less, as that's where accuracy is most important, so I don't run out of fuel. I am not on automatic delivery, so I call the oil company for a delivery, and the price at 200 gallons and up is cheaper than less than 200 gallons by about 8 cents a gallon. I have the receiver located several rooms away from where the tank is in the basement, and the signal from the tank sending unit seems great. If I find out that it is less accurate than I had hoped for at low tank levels, I will, if allowed to here, edit my review. Right now, I am very pleased with this device.

                          Purchased for my parents because they are getting up in age and now they do not need to go down the cellar stairs to check the oil tank level.

                                This product was very easy to program and install. I have a horizontal tank and was concerned the Rocket would not work for my application. I was delighted to find it came with software to work with different configurations and tank sizes...and easily selected with switches on the unit. And having an RF communication link made it very easy to install the display at a convenient place. Very pleased with the product.

                                            I installed this about 2 months ago on the opposite side of the glass gauge where there was another plug. I sprayed the plug with PB Buster and used a small pipe wrench with a steel pipe for added leverage. The directions for set up were straight forward and I installed the rocket with no problem. I used some Teflon tape around the threads of the included plug. My 275 gal. tank is located on its side (30 " high) in a crawlspace. I set the DIP switch to 5 and 7 and made comparisons of its accuracy with the glass gauge on the tank. I found it to be very accurate and so I'm relieved I don't have to crawl into the crawlspace to read the gauge again. Now I can get my best price on fuel oil and calculate when to order by relying on this wireless monitor. My house was built in 1961 and the tank was placed in the crawlspace and the floor joists built above it. Of course, I would not have built it this way and instead created an enclosed and insulated shed next to the house for the tank. Nonetheless the wireless monitor is certainly a labor saving device for this situation. If my tank springs a leak (its 54 years old) then I will build a shed for the next tank.

                                            My old oil company had this unit on my tank and was transmitting the data over the phone lines to their office. I dumped them and bought one for myself. It works like a charm since my tank is outside and who wants to run out in the winter to check the gauge all the time. Well, this eliminates that. I verify it matches the actual tank level once in a while since my oil consumtion drastically dropped since installing a pellet stove. I'm still waiting for the monitor to beep & flash telling me I need oil. Still sitting at 3/4 of a tank. Might make it all year before needing a fill up. PEX Supply was fantastic to work with. Rapid delivery, great prices.

                                                A:

                                                I can't tell you what the pressure rating is on the Rocket Monitor, but I have never had a problem with it when the tanks are being filled. My problem has always been with the cheap plastic gauges that are standard on the tanks. I live in the snow belt and the weight of the snow on the tanks tend to break them over time allowing water into the tanks. The Rocket is much more durable and screws in tightly and easily.
                                                In fact, I have used the Rocket for a few winters and have not had any problems with it. It was one of the best investments I have made. I no longer have to trudge through the snow to try to read the gauge. I have the monitor plugged in on the opposite side of the house. It is very accurate and I have only had to reset it once. Just unplug it and plug it back in.
                                                I only wish I had found this product sooner. I have duel tanks and one Rocket monitors both tanks. I highly recommend it and doubt that you would regret the purchase.
