Siphon outgassing pump

Float sensors in the tower detect when the water level is lowered by accumulated gases and kick on a 12V vacuum pump to remove them from the siphon. The whole system is solar powered.

Originally designed by Cam's brother Lou, I added some brainstorming, troubleshooting, and numbercrunching to the final system.
