Record Times of Water Softener Regeneration Process

Hi All, I'm a bit of a novice at this but hope someone can point me in the right direction.

We installed a water softener that regenerates after a set through put of water. Obviously this depends on the house hold usage so can happen anytime at 20 to 26 hours intervals. 

The regeneration is signaled by the discharge of water through a 3/8" o/d plastic tube, some 17 litres at about 1 bar pressure.

Is there any way to capture these regen events and record the time (& Date) they happen?

If there is a simple/easy solution to cobble together proprietary components that would be great but if it proves too difficult and expensive then the curiosity value may not be worth the effort. However, it's a good challenge. 

Thanks for reading this.
