Don't know who is the major manufacturer now for them but it used to be CCI. However they had such a problem with them failing prematurely that they finally went out of business in January of last year I think. I believe they are still available though. You can test the solenoid at the tank by disconnecting it and using a spare battery to apply 12V to it an listen for it to click over. It should be good, my money would be on the control itself (I assume that is what got "flooded") I don't believe you can just buy the controller either as I think they come as a kit with the solenoid. If you could it should be much cheaper to replace as the solenoids aren't cheap.
