Titus,

I forgot to e-mail you the link to Robert Michelson's site so that you could check out his sinusodial valve arrangement. Have a look at it and tell me what you think.

Hello Troy,

I say amazing engineering is the right choice of words. AB+CD is indeed a great design. Although this mean you will have 4x the amount of components. But I don't see how else we can get a working system as reliable as that. I guess it's more suitable if the keeper is going to be away for a long time and there's no one to step in to watch for things.

Afterall, the guy is a professor in Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech is the most respected university for digital signal processing. They were the one the FBI went to for analyzing the Olympic bomber's tape, or that's what our Georgia Tech professors at UBC keep bragging on about. [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

Do you think that this set up would be reasonable to do for an average bloke?

Hello Troy,

In my honest opinion, I don't think it would be reasonable for a average bloke. It shouldn't be too difficult of a thing to do but I just think it's too overkill.

Well thanks to Jim Perry I have another idea for the sinusodial wave making. I'm waiting on a three way valve and actuater from Hayward. If it isn't ridiculously priced I'm going to go for it.

Thank you, Jim Perry. For the creation of sinusodial waves, I have another concept. I'm awaiting delivery from Hayward of a three-way valve and actuator. I'm going to buy it if the price isn't outrageous.
