Hi dkelley,

I'm thinking you're running narrow-web, without a pump.

Some pans have a line or ridge built in.

If your pan has a drain hole at the bottom, you can put in a "dam" with its top at the level you want to maintain and connect a hose to the drain that pours into an overflow container.

Depending on the pan design, you can design all sorts of simple tricks. Can you share a picture or drawing?
