This is the newest project in the building to do list. With two motor actuated valves controlling the sump filter intake and and outflow pipes connected to dealBreaker would be game changing.
Not only could you map the open/close ratio to a pair of potentiometers for manual control on both valves, you could also have the valves automatically calibrating based on something like a water level sensor located in the pump compartment of the sump. Or, perhaps the rate of flow changes through out the day with times of higher flow and turbulence followed by lower flow at night when a quieter tank is more desirable. The valves could also simulate rising and falling water levels – which would be handy for occasionally flushing out low lying areas of the shore.
Make no mistake, the Threat Level is Midnight.
