I have an optical and a float sensor. I do not want to use min/max, but would rather them be configured to behave like a Tunze Osmolator. I have the optical configured as the sensor for regular single sensor “Auto top off“ function.

What is the best way to now program the float sensor to indicate the water in the sump is too high then 1) turn off ATO pump, 2) turn off skimmer, and 3) send an alarm/notification?

Sorry if this is explained elsewhere but I could not find it!

Thanks, I didn’t think of treating it as a leak sensor. I have actual hardware leak sensors as well so I'll see if I can figure out how to mix all this together.
