      I got so busy I had to set it aside for awhile. Can't put it to use until winter is over anyway, but I plan to finish it up by spring. I did do more on it than I reported though, and it's pretty close to test. I will post updates when I get back at it.

      Very late to this thread but if you need help with the electronics please reach out. I basically rebuilt all the sensors on my KC-30 with some cheap float sensors and an Arduino with an industrial shield taking input from some 24v automative buttons and turning on some lights to indicate status and finally triggering drum motor and jet pump with some 110v relays. All pretty straight forward and it's working great so far so would love to help if you need any.

      Thank you for your offer. I could have never gotten as far as I have on my project without the generous help koiphen members have freely contributed.

      I built an electrical panel out of some of the left over pvc and have all the components installed and wired up, it may need some tweaking but I think it's going to work. For now I've got a couple of cheap float switches , but haven't installed them in the tank yet. I'm going to have to experiment with the best high and low water levels to set the float switches at. I'm sure I'll have bugs to work out, and will likely upgrade at least the float switches later on.

      I would like to see how you did your setup, and what parts you used. Photos, wiring diagram, & description of what you did would be of much interest to me, and I'm sure it would be interesting and useful to others.
