SAFETY IS A HIGH PRIORITY  —

Water and 120 volt electricity do not mix….

Valve operates on 120 Volts

I have been searching for gravity feed valves for sometime now.  I will be using them to control release of water from my tanks with the help of an Arduino.  I picked the 120volt option on this valve so I would not to deal with 12 or 24 volt wall warts.  Everything I am using right now is 120 volts.

So I wanted to keep my prototype setup very simple and straight forward.  This does cause some safety issues, so being overly careful is always  a good thing.
