    Borderline on topic...

    Lid vs (rare) jumpy fish ;(

    Option B - automation that is not full proof - ATO pump failed while on vacation and the sump level dropped to the point the temp sensor was measuring basement ambient air temp...and the APEX cranked the heat (both primary and secondary heater).
    I got lucky in that I arrived home before the tank boiled...I walked in the door to hear the pump sucking air, added a couple gallons of (70degree) RODI and the temp then measured 87. Lost a few things from stress, but averted a full crash.
