Solenoid for filter

I have been toying with the idea of putting a solenoid on the feed side of my CF. The idea is if the power goes out the VO supply to the CF will stop. This would be for safety only. I would still manually stop the flow with a ball valve when I turn everything off. My new filtering setup will be in my other garage and powered from a generator (for now...) The garage is not too close to the areas I hang out. I would still come by and check on it often but want some way to stop the flow to the CF if the gen stops or a breaker blows etc. Anyone have any suggestions?


Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Do it.

I have a 220V Parker valve on mine wired inline with the CF motor for just that reason. Normally closed. Opens with CF motor power.

Handy for use in summer when power seems to go out a lot.
