All you will see is the flood icon and whatever text you send with it on
whatever client you are using or on aprs.fi or findu.com.  That is, until
(and if) an author wants to go to the trouble of implementing the colors.

I have updated the web page based on this excellent feedback:
- Yes, there needs to be an air-relief hole at the highest expected water
- Also, as shown the batteries will need to also be above the water line
- And Steve points out that only a waterproof level sensor should be used.
