You need to be more specific.  The black tanks monitor is known for being useless after a few fillings, but you fresh tank monitor should be fairly accurate.

Thanks. Water also had problem. Monitor showed two thirds full, but ran dry. I plan to check monitor wire connections on tanks.

Thanks Ray and Connie...believe issue resolved. Since all three tanks are essentially horizontal, there is very little vertical distance between sensors. Guess I'll have to go with "full/empty".
Thanks again!

You can usually tell the grey is full, because it will come up the shower drain.  For the black, taking a quick peak down the hole will give you a sense in when it's filled.
