Magnetic Switch Paired with Timer - Help Answered
I am a real newbie in electronics, and have been researching. I want to build a submersible pump, using (5 gallon bucket, a toilet flush valve and a pond pump -120 volts). What I need is some way to control the pump so its not running 100% of the time.
What I need is a Timer which would keep the pump running for X minutes and a magnetic switch which would activate the timer once the toilet flush valve is at a specific level.)
I dont know how to set this up, I found 555 timers on amazon but not sure which ones would serve to what I need
this one seems to be what i need but it is 12 volts
maybe this thing would work
Can someone recommend how to go about building something like that? Or maybe there is something similar already built?
Thank you very much!
