Rube Goldberg weep system


My Dixmore Weep Mizer DX1000 is not working correctly.  I tested the Weep Mizer in my other wash Wylam and it would not turn on the solenoid.  So I decided to wire a normally closed solenoid to the heater thermostat.  This plan involved purchasing a Rain Bird (CP-075) irrigation solenoid, of course this solenoid runs off 24 volts.  So I needed a 24 volt transformer to convert the 120 volts to 24 volts.  I then used an extension cable to wire the system.  Then magic everything works.

When I was trying to rewire the thermostat I ended up having to rewire the thermostat.  I always love side projects.
