Thanks!

I protect the electronics by not getting water on it :-)

The water resorvoir, pump, and most of the tubing is below the electronics,
so if there is a spill it won't land on the electronics. The only
exception is the last tube that goes to the nozzle & the nozzle itself,
which points away from the robot. I did have some problems with this
dripping on the flame sensor board from the nozzle, btw.
