New Addition:  Auto top-up to the sump tank.  This has been in place now for 3 days, and I finally got it tuned to the way I like it.

I no longer have to worry about topping up the system manually, The only thing I need to be concerned about is the top-up barrel running empty.  I'm going to create a tank level indicator that will let me know by just glancing at the barrel where the water level is, I'll add pictures when this is in place.

Parts List:

  • 3/4 PVC  Kerick float valve  I got off Amazon along with a float ball and rod.  I had to bend the rod to get it "tuned" in the correct position and where I wanted my water level to stay.
  • 3/4 female PVC connector to the float valve
  • about 8 inches of 3/4 PVC
  • a connector to the top up barrel that basically fits a hose.
