My only input... in regards to you asking about adding more water. Make sure that you have some wiggle room. Leave a good 2" (my opinion of course) in the sump when everything is shut down (and has been for a bit) so that you won't have to worry about it overflowing in the event of a power outage.
"What, exactly, is the internet? Basically it is a global network exchanging digitized data in such a way that any computer, anywhere, that is equipped with a device called a 'modem', can make a noise like a duck choking on a kazoo." - Dave Barry
