    Hi guys

    Every time theres a power trip my sump fills up.
    I do have a antisyphan hole in my return line.
    Then as power comes back , my skimmer overskims until the water level is back to normal in the sump.
    Does anyone know of where can I find a "power-on - delay" switch or adapter?
    This could be my solution if I can just delay the skimmer for 5 minutes after power returns.
    Is anyone using this? Where will I find one in JHB in East Rand
    Or is there any other ideas?
