Request: Code to use single ATO as failsafe

Hello folks,

I am trying to install a single float at the top of the sump (wire side up) and use it to turn port 5 of my only relay off. I currently have a standalone single float ATO plugged to port 5 which keeps the water stable but it has failed me a couple times. If it sticks on the low position it continues to import fresh water. To avoid overflowing the sump and flooding the room, I would like to install a single float at the top so it would stop it from continuing.
Also, which of the 2 connectors from the main controller should I use.

In sum: If single float gets pushed up, then turn OFF port 5.

Thanks in advance!

Try this:
Code: Select all
if (ReefAngel.LowATO.IsActive()) ReefAngel.Relay.Off(Port5);

Place it after the ATO function you are using now.

Thanks Roberto. What if I am not using an ATO function at all? Custom code area?
