Does this post help from someone who has done a diy top up system?
shoggoth43;50034 said:Odd thought. What about using the pump without a solenoid? Put in a T fitting up near the top of your loop and leave it open to the air. As long as you don't blast water out of the top of the T ( which you could extend with a pipe ) you should be fine. Once the pump shuts off the open end will break any siphon. This avoids the need for a solenoid at all.
