I made a simple low water warning set up to let me know when the ATO container is close to empty. I installed a float switch near the bottom of the container and ran the wires to two AA batteries and then to a LED that I attached to the front of the stand. When the water level gets low enough to trigger the LED I know that I have another day left before the container is empty.
