Water level controller is necessary for many reasons. Water level can be monitored and controlled automatically without any human intervention. Thus, it saves water wastage, electricity and time. This can be used both in industries and houses. The circuit I am going to share in this post controls water level in the overhead tank or any tank. Can be used in tanks of any liquids (eg. oil) provided it should not be hot. The cost of making this circuit is very low and can be assembled on a general purpose board if you are using it for your personal use. For commercial purposes, you can buy one from here.
Working of the circuit:
When both tank and sump are empty,
Power LED and Yellow LED will be turned ON
When the tank is empty and sump is full,
Power LED and Motor on LED will be turned ON
When both the tank and sump are full,
Power LED and Full tank LED will be turned ON
When the tank is full and sump is empty,
Power LED , Full tank LED and Sump Dry LED will be turned ON
Over Head Tank Controller:
We can also use this circuit to control overhead tank alone by shorting the sump sensor connection.
In this case it will turn on the motor when the water level falls below the bottom and turns off automatically when the tank is full.

If the flow of water is intermittent in the initial stage, pump will start and stop as per the flow of water. In order to avoid this, we can add a timer. So that, once the pump is turned on after sensing the water, it will not get turned off until the water flow stops or the tank is full.
