I bought a neptune solenoid that I want to put on my ato line for 2 reasons; primarily to shut off and keep the line full of water since my fresh water tank is in my garage one floor above my sump and the line gurgles when the pump shuts off and the line drains due to the vacuum break, secondly to provide another layer of redundancy to close if the high level sensor is under water. Can I get some help with programming? It will be plugged into one of the 24v outlets on my eb832. The pic shows my current ato programming

The simple thing to do is to program the Solenoid output to turn on when the ATK pump is on, and off when it's off.

[Solenoid]
Fallback OFF
Set OFF
If Output ATK_Pump = ON Then ON

just substitute ATK_Pump with the actual name of your ATO output.
