Works Great By Den on 5/7/13Den would recommend this product to a friendQuick and easy installation on my Brute reservoir to prevent overflows if I forget to turn off the water supply to the RO/DI
You must have it By Awais on 4/18/13Awais would recommend this product to a friendInstalling this to your RO reservior saves you so much headache, you dont have to run around to switch the RO on or off. No risk of flooding your room/basement.
Highly recommend this and other ATO switches.
This is amazing! By Should be sold with ro/di unit! on 4/14/13Should be sold with ro/di unit! would recommend this product to a friendI can't believe this isn't sold with Ro/DI units! If I could go back to being a newb without one of these I would pay an extra 20 dollars to add this in! It seriously has already saved me so much time and so much cleanup from leaving the water on!
must have By Vincent on 4/14/13Vincent would recommend this product to a friendI have this connected to a 32 gallon brute. Allows me to turn on my RO/DI and let in run overnight without any worries.
Awesome By Russter on 4/7/13Russter would recommend this product to a friendGreat float valve to use if making your own top off or water change system. No need to buy the adjustable one (possibly point of failure if nut comes loose or rusts).
Perfect By Loren on 4/2/13Loren would recommend this product to a friendKeeps the water level in my sump spot on. Haven't had any fluctuations in salinity. No more lugging buckets of water all over the house to top off the sump. Why didn't I have one earlier?
Failed after 2 days By Fishticious Person on 3/29/13Fishticious Person wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWorked well in reservoir for 2 days. Then would not shut off completely, causing overflow. Luckily I had water alert alarm next to reservoir so carpet soaking was minimal. I attached packing minipillow to float to increase buoyancy, which seems to work so far.
AWESOME By Mike on 3/25/13Mike would recommend this product to a friendBest purchase I have ever made, I forget my RO/DI Unit on all the time and this is a Floor saver! Great Job!
A MUST HAVE! By Andy on 3/18/13Andy would recommend this product to a friendI replaced my old float valve that had worn out on my sump ATO with this float valve. Works great! I purchased two so I would have a back up.
Good product so so support By Discusfin on 3/14/13Discusfin would recommend this product to a friendProduct works great. Confused how to shut off bad water and keep from overflowing. That seems to be the way to shut off the system. No replay with solution.
A MUST HAVE! By The Reef Spot on 3/2/13The Reef Spot would recommend this product to a friendIf you are making your own saltwater and RODI water, and store them in garbage cans, you need these. There are 101 uses for the Adjustable Float Valves. I use them in all my water resiviors, and i have built countless Auto Top Off systems with these and 5 gallon buckets. For this price, a $200 ATO is a waste of money.
great By James on 2/28/13James would recommend this product to a friendWork great. Use them all the time.

I have the 5 Stage Plus BRS RO/DI unit and I wanted the auto shutoff? Is the float valve all I need to add that feature?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Tracy,
If you have a 5 stage plus (or any of our current units with the exception of the 3 stage) then all you need is the float valve. All the other components are already built in.

What size hole is recommended for inserting this float valve? Also what is the tightest radius that this would be safe to install this through (like 5 gallon bucket or 55 gallon trash can)? Thanks!
Bulk Reef Supply Hey there,
The part that goes through the side of the container is 7/16ths but most people just use a 1/2" bit. Really any container that won't impact the movement of the float itself will work, so it needs 6-8" where the float sticks out. Outside of that the container can really be any shape or radius, both a 55g can and a 5g bucket will both work fine :-)

How would I hook up an rodi unit to two drums of water? Do I just split the hose to two different drum and add one float per drum?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Michael,
You are correct! That is all that is to it. I would also suggest putting an inline ball valve in front of each float valve so that you can turn one or the other off if needed. It would be the 1/4" inline ball valve that you are looking for, and it can be found right here:

Hello. I currently use the 75 gall drinking water kit and use the MUR-LOK RO INLINE BALL valve to turn on and off the water when I do water changes and top off water. If i use one of these float valves in my storage container, would I just be slipping the line at the end of my valve into the float valve end and that's it? the shut off the ball valve to disconnect line from float valve or do I need to get another auto S/O? Thanks
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Manuel,
Really all you need to do is connect your float valve to the output side of your inline ball valve. The existing auto shut off valve will function for both parts of the unit so no worries there.
NOTE: To shut off your waste water you will need an auto shut off valve and check valve. If you don’t have these please purchase the “Auto Shut Off Kit.”
