    Hi

    I'm trying to make a double tank that will mix water and add the water to the 3 tank, just using water pressure from a water line.
    I have a sample link animation here.. www.desktopgifts.com/sample.swf

    Here's what I need to work..

    The double tank on the left side has a divided top and bottom.
    Tank #1 will take in water at the top, while the bottom tank will
    stay filled with the water supply #4 keeping pressure on the rubber stopper
    to keep the tank#1 closed from the bottom..When tank #3 empty's some how I want
    tank#1 to mix with tank#2 and fill Tank#3 with the mixed water..

    Tank#3 has a water float in it, so tank#2 water line keeps pressure in the filled tank
    to fill tank#3 ..


    If it has to all together redesigned that's fine.

    I need to mix the two tanks of water together and use the water pressure from the water line to fill tank#3
    with the mixed water..

    If anyone can help please contact me.. this is very important to me
    to get this working..
    Maybe its hard to understand what im trying to do here..
    If its OK on the site I will pay for help solving this problem.

    Thank you TOM

    TOM:

    From what I understand you basic system should work with properly sized and located tanks and valves.

    We can not resolve your challenge on the site, I do design consulting and I could assist you.

    send me an e-mail at the address below so we can discuss the details.
