The idea is to take the water used in a shower to use for flushing the toilet (or any other suitable purpose), there is no sense in using drinkable water for that. I don´t have a garden or any other use for "gray water" (Thanks Greg Kennedy for the tip), although it could eventually be added to the design; so the only use for the moment is to flush the toilet.

Hi, i uploaded the video today, tomorrow i´ll be posting some photos.
I had to wait to the last minute because i wanted the system to be operational for the video, but i'm having some troubles with shaky servos and not much sensing sensors. It worked fine in the simulated version that I designed on 123d circuits, but real life is hard...
Hopefully, i´ll soon make a new video when the system is fully working and also i´ll upload the arduino code.
The code worked very well, so i decided to make it more complicated. I added a reserve tank to save more shower water if the toilet tank is full with an overfill-avoid-pipe. The new code works well also.
There's a new drawing to show the modifications. I am keeping the previous ones as references.
The scale model is halfway done, probably i'll finish it this weekend.
