It will all depend how much i can drain before i get a vortex created by the 2" circ pump inlet. If i cant get a good amount i will experiment with either shutting the circ pump off during the change or running the WC more frequent. Either way wont be a problem.

Do you have the coding you used in your arduino mega? I would love to compare it to what I am planning to use if you are up for it.
