    maybe make one? I think all you need is a float switch, and a small pump.

    I got one from the R33 i think, and the pump was R60 odd.... MUCH cheaper than a bought system, mine works like a bomb !!!!

    Oh its also worth asking electro mechanica who they supply in your local area ...... turns out that they supplied a small engineering shop 2km from my place .... saved me lots of hassle !!!

    when you put the tube from the pump to the sump, dont forget to cut a hole somewhere to break the back siphon !!!!
