Carbon Skimmer Automation

​​This design uses automation to only turn on the carbon skimmer when the following two condtions are met for five seconds: 1) there is carbon dioxide, and 2) the gas pressure is at least 750 grams.

Atmo sensor: above 750

Gas element sensor: carbon dioxide

Filter gate: 5 seconds

Note: piping isn't included here. You will need to pump water to the carbon skimmer and it outputs polluted water.
