RE: auto-fill
Can't help but wonder about the durability in a volatile environment, and more importantly, their safety in terms of any potential sparking.

I wouldn't expect an answer to these concerns from any supplier (other than to err on the side of caution) due to liability issues on their part.

Ooops, I put up the wrong link. This is where I got my float valve and they have barb fittings and all types of stuff in plastic, nylon, etc:

A problem I had with the float tank is venting. If it's not vented, and the supply tank isn't vented, you will go into vapor lock and vacuum lock. The supply will stop, after the float won't rise to shutoff and overfills your unit. (air gets trapped in the top and the float won't come up when pressure equalizes...valve still open) A 1/8" fitting and hose on the top took care of this nicely. Here's the float tank with the unit that failed. (box melted)
