Can you somehow give a zoomed version of that first pic? Can't really read it.

No, I add new water from an RO filter when it runs out. Water is constantly evaporating from the tank and replaced by the water in the reservoir.

I've calculated the evaporation rate and set the timer to give me what I need only (plus a tiny bit more)

The purpose of the siphon function is solely for the scenario where a timer might malfunction. It's to remove any possibility of flooding
