To build the tower base with all the sensors a interface plate is needed to prevent water from reaching the inter core of the tower base. As it turns out 3 different templates are needed to accomplish the task.
Here is what one looks like once it is completed and ready to be installed into a tower base:

Here is the “INTERFACE PLATE” — this plate is inserted into the base of the towers and is sealed. With this interface plate in place wires can be run to tower sensors and power supplied to the pumps that feed the towers. Without these interface plates it would be dangerous to provide power to pumps or connect or disconnect the tower columns.
