First some background: I got the idea to use my pWater from the lavatory and showers to help with cooling from watching a Brothgar video. great guy! As time passed, I'd also noticed that the small packets of pWater didnt have time to warm up and often were so small as to have little real effect. Late last night I thought about how to fix this, and initially found the automation required confusing, even head-achy lol, so i went to bed. Three cheers for sleep, this morning I evolved this, A is a buffer gate, set to how long the connected shutoff should be active and allow the (hopefully) heated water to pass on towards a seive. B is a Not gate, once the buffer flips to inactive this inverts that and starts the next gate C is a fliter gate, this stays inactive for a set period of time before becoming active, set to a duration long enough to let the pWater in the radiant pipes to heat up. For my current setup A to 18 (18 packets should be let out) and C to 40 are working well. on a side note, i also have lots of bottled pWater that i feed in at a T junction so that the lavatory feed has priority, this 'solved' the small packet issue. I hope this relatively simple circuit can help someone else with what initially appears to be a complex automation issue.
