I'm very new, but learning, so keep it simple for stupid (me).
I'm building a new aquarium, and I want to have automated processes for topping off the water and for draining and re-filling.
I have the basic structure of the circuitry and most of the code down, but I'm struggling with one issue.
When the drain/re-fill process is running, I need the ATO (auto top off) to stop entirely.
I'm on the fence about attaching the drain/re-fill to a clock, and I may just connect it to a button. Regardless, I need to figure out the easiest language to make that input (button or clock) stop the ATO and then start the drain/re-fill. Once the re-fill is complete, I want to start the ATO again.
FYI, they are both based on float switch inputs. The ATO has one pump output and a power head output (moves the water). The D/R has a separate pump.
Using an Arduino UNO.
If more info is needed, let me know.
