Please make an ATO/AWC I can buy
One box with a power cord
5 LEDS
ATO on
AWC on
AWC draining
AWC Filling
Error

3 outlets for AC pumps

4 sensors selectable between float, optical, or pressure.
Hi water alarm
Low water alarm
Normal water level sense
AWC drain down sense

Perhaps a few user configurable pauses in there like between AWC drain and fill for example
Configurable by remote login

I know this actually isn't very hard to make and I bought the stuff to do it and breadboarded it but my fabrication skills as well as my declining fine motor skills made me put it in a box in the closet.

I am actually doing this now by plugging a SmartAqua ATO/AWC into a AutoTopoff ATO unit. The first does the functions and the second turns it off if it screws up. It does a lot.
I just flipped one of the magnets on the float sensor to change the logic.


Please

Not a bad idea for a simple low cost kitted version that is low stress. Love the idea. If you do need help with wiring and fabrication work let me know.
There is no help for parkinsonism over the internet. My mind isn't as plastic as it used to be either and I get frustrated quickly. You reach a point where sort of knowing what you need to do isnt good enough anymore.
 

When is the last time you purchased cleanup crew critters?
