I have written 3 instructables over the last 2 years. I have just gone over 10,000 views. Never thought I would every have had that many views with only 3 instructions. Always good to know people are interested in what I am interested in.

SAFETY IS A HIGH PRIORITY —
Water and 120 volt electricity do not mix….
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.
