actually a possible solution to this would be a automatic drip fill
would take some "tweaking" to match the flows right, but have it drip about 1g per hour into the tank and then once an hour have your solenoid discharge like 99% of a gallon (to make up for the tiny amount lost to evap in that time) would take a little back and forth, but by drawing some lines on the sump with dry erase markers and having the sump only 3/4 full during testing should allow you to adjust the flow perfectly. Just pray nothing ever plugs the outlet pipe lol... if so you will slowly overflow everywhere

I could create a section that fills up with water and slowly rains into the system over the hour and drain the gallon out at the beginning of the hour. The out let will be in the pump section of the pump so there will be mechanical filters, bit filters and another mechanical filter before the pump section. I will make sure the 1 gallon section where the new water is pumped in drains in over the hour. Something like a box made out of plastic that had a few very small holes that will drip into the tank.

Use a Moen thermo balanced shower rough in valve, install two soft seat inline flow check valves on the supply side prior to the valve body, one for hot, one for cold. Install a tee and a thermometer well and a thermometer of a digital device on the mixed side water. Install a full port ball valve after that. Presto. Pipe it to your tanks. About $150 depending upon the thermometer you use.
