Your image isn't working. Try using the "post reply" button, below the text box there is an area for uploading images (manage attachments) and try adding your pic that way. HTH

there should be a float just like in the back of your toilet, and a pump that fills the container to a certain point when the float lifts the flapper valve and releases all that water rapidly into the tank creating a surge like in the ocean as a wave breaks.
