im an electronics enthusiast but not smart in programming  =( . i am running a water pump for my hydroponics system (variable on and off timing) with various water level and temperature sensors. my problem is i can't run the on and off timing of the pump and the sensors simultaneously.The only way i know is the delay command which is not suited for my needs.  I'm really a newbie, any suggestion will be much appreciated. thanks in advance  :)

You need to look at the blink without delay example.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

Use millis() instead of delay.. Have a look at my last post. http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,77152.0.html
