v2comp Posted June 12, 2012 Report Share Posted June 12, 2012 I am brand new to this and I have a question, I want to fill 3 small water tanks with (1) water valve at the same time and I have 3 separate float valves with switches ( one in each tank), I dont want the main water valve to switch off until all three reach full. the float valves/switches control the water flow indepentently by shutting off the flow themselves manually at each tank, but as one fills I need the remaining to continue to fill. I want the main water valve (motorized ball valve) to continue until all 3 are full. I am struggling with how to structure the ladder correctly without having separate motorized ball valves at each tank, but because the float valves/switches can shut off the flow mechanically themselves as well as send an electrical signal back to an input, I just want the main water valve to be the only other valve component can someone please help me structure the ladder correctly? I have been reading and trying different things, but it isnt working. the valve shuts off as soon as the first first tank reaches full and I just dont know enough to fix it.
