    Hiya, Thank you for your detailed reply. From what you are saying I think you are talking about a bio-recycling system of some sort, sadly this doesn't seem to be the sort of thing my mate has got or requires at the moment.He lives off-the-grid as much as he can and is sited halfway up a mountain, and having chatted more it seems his water storage system (a series of IBC's set into the hillside and filled from a well) has a tendency to head more alkaline as it sits. Why this is neither of us knows but as I said in the original thread he needs something simple and automated to keep the two tanks more stable.It does seem though that your reply has given him thoughts about reclamation of his "grey" water so there could be activity in that area soon.Thanks again, Hobbit.

    Hiya,Many thanks for your efforts in posting a constructive and helpful reply, it reminds me of one of my old teacher's reports at school - Must Try Harder.If you'd done more than skimmed the original post you would note I'd already gone through many pages not dissimilar to your link (actually, my results were better as there were fewer of the links pointing towards commercially manufactured devices before the page wandered off to other non-related stuff like water level sensors and motor controls etc.) but I have still been unable to find anything suitable for me to build or adapt at my level of knowledge. OK, at your level of skill, education and experience you'd probably class it as my level of ignorance, I haven't the impressive background you have, but I'm trying to learn, to pick ...

    Hiya,Many thanks for your efforts in posting a constructive and helpful reply, it reminds me of one of my old teacher's reports at school - Must Try Harder.If you'd done more than skimmed the original post you would note I'd already gone through many pages not dissimilar to your link (actually, my results were better as there were fewer of the links pointing towards commercially manufactured devices before the page wandered off to other non-related stuff like water level sensors and motor controls etc.) but I have still been unable to find anything suitable for me to build or adapt at my level of knowledge. OK, at your level of skill, education and experience you'd probably class it as my level of ignorance, I haven't the impressive background you have, but I'm trying to learn, to pick out the small gems of knowledge required to build on from the lake of dross that abounds on the web, and was asking either for assistance in the right direction in fields I am totally unfamiliar with, or if someone knew of the actual device and could point me towards that, all this on a site called "Instructables", a place where people educate and help others in how to do or to make or to create.It may not sound it to some but I do thank you, through your efforts to broaden my horizons, I have found one link on the page you sent that yielded information that it seems I should know for the future, Scidle.com: how to use a pH sensor with Arduino, now to see if I can find all the foundations to put that brick onto.Cheers. Hobbit.
