Kasuha Posted April 4, 2017 Share Posted April 4, 2017 I have a set of showers and lavatories and I want to be sure their output pipes never get full. I also have a set of fertilizer makers and I want to be sure their input pipes are always full so they have enough material to work on all the day and night. This means I need all output from showers and lavatories needs to go to the fertilizer makers, but then all excess needs to be dumped somewhere. And I want to make sure that as little as possible is dumped to keep the makers busy. A pressure vent would be a (preferably passive) device that has one input and two outputs, and sends all input to one output unless that output is full, then it starts sending the input to the other output. Here is an image how I solved it in my base, though the solution is a bit clunky. There are four pipe bridges which in total steal 15/16 of whatever comes through the pipe, letting the rest (or whatever's above them being full) go forth to the purifier. It would be nice to have just one device to do the trick, though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
