Auto top off help

what step down transformer 120v to 12v do I need! What ones are y'all using? And we're can I buy one? Putting water in my sump everyday is getting real old lol! One day I came home and my pump was making noises my water was way low! Don't want that to happen again!

I would suggest just buying one of the known auto top off units, they ant that expensive, tested and safe, make sure you get one with 2 sensors, a high and a low

If I was going to get one it would have been the JBJ for price and reliability.
