water level sensor syphon control
I am trying to design an automatic watering system for a chick brooder at the ranch. We are off-grid, so don't have electric. The brooder is in a room in the barn beside a water tank. I want to set up a siphon system to get water from the stock tank to fill the water tanks in the brooder--but need to have some way to turn on and off the water automatically. I've seen the water sensors and no water sensors, and think those might be a start--use the no-water sensor to trigger the flow of water, and the water sensor to turn it off--but I'm not sure how to rig up a siphon that can be turned on and off, and not sure how to wire the whole thing together. Any help greatly appreciated.
