This circuit produces an audible alarm when the water level in a rain or water tank rises above a preset level and overflows. It will sound an alarm whenever the water level reaches the top position in the overhead tank, thus it alerts one to turn off the motor to prevent water wastage. 

The purpose of this circuit is to detect when there is an overflow of water in a tank and stop it from continuing to rise which would cause flooding. This can be useful in many different places where there are tanks of water like swimming pools, fountains or overhead tanks for example.

It has a power indicator and a full tank led indicator apart from the alarm. The power to this device can be kept "on" all the time (24 X 7). We can turn off the alarm sound by pressing the momentary switch. We can use contact type sensors or float switches to sense the water level inside the tank. We can use this circuit in the overhead tank, swimming pools, underground sump, aquariums, etc.. in order to monitor the top or low level.

When setting up this overflow alarm circuit, it is important to ensure that you have a 9 or 12v step-down transformer with a current rating ranging from 200mA to 500mA. We can also power this circuit using a 12V SMPS power supply. Using speaker wire, you can easily connect the device to the sensor or float switches inside the tank. For the alarm, a continuous tone buzzer has been used, but you also have the option to use a musical buzzer or a recordable chip with a slight modification in the circuit. This will allow you to customize the alarm to your preference.

This circuit can also be assembled easily on a general purpose Pcb.
