Steam Question

We've got a customer with a one year old steam boiler. This is a nice, and probably fairly expensive house. There is no auto feed on the boiler. The customer states that the old unit had an auto feed that stuck open while they were on vacation, and it caused $40k worth of damage to the house. I can understand his fear of feeders.

I was thinking that a float device placed up high paralleling the equalizer  could operate a solenoid in the fresh water line. Not perfect, but maybe another step of safety. Has anyone seen anything like this before?
