Hi to everyone, I am new here and happy since I just received my first batch of item from Blue Robotic. My first build will be a multiparameter probe. Implementing sensors and electronic should be easy but it is my first shot with underwater pressure / leaks so this part will be challenging for sure.
My first question is about the 3" watertigth acrylic cylinder and the flanges. When I unboxed my parts, I was surprise to see that the flange are push fit inside of the cylinder but that there is no screws to actually fix the flange on the cylinder! I plan to use the cylinder vertically with the sensor entering in the water and going down to the bottom of lakes and littoral zone. Will the flanges stay in place or there is a risk of them popping out of the cylnder if they are subjected to sudden shock? Will the vent plug be enough to prevent this? Should I imagine a way to hold the flange in place?
