get so that my RODI water does not over flow thanks Nick.
This kit would be exactly what your looking for. The only extra consideration is making sure your system doesn't already have an auto shut off valve (as many do). If it happens to be that you have a system that has the shut off valve built in (like all of ours except the space saver) then all you would need is just the float valve itself.
The Float Valve in conjunction with auto shut off and check valve (Other two items already built into the BRS RO/DI systems) will work to turn the water to the RO unit on and off as the float is lowered and raised. This will always keep the water at the same level and has some strain on the RO/DI as the water will constantly be turning on and off through out the day. A pressure tank can certainly work as well to store larger amounts of water on hand and not have the same strain on the RO membrane.
You would also want the auto shut off to turn off the RO/DI unit itself when the tank is full, otherwise you will just be running water down the drain!
You will want to install the float valve in the trash can. We recommend then using a John Guest 3 way ball valve which would be attached to the same product water line to divert the flow from either the trash can or to another area! This way you will not need to disconnect the line.
That is correct, after the RO membrane and if you have a DI unit that would be before the DI canister. After going to the ASOV then the water would go on to the DI cartridge.
If you ordered one of the 6 stage deluxe models then everything in this kit would already be included. Any of our other RO units would include everything except the float valve, so you would need just the float valve with the other units.
The instructions for these are in video form and can be found right here:
If you have an auto shut off kit installed (not just a float valve) then water would stop running through the entire unit when the reservoir is full.
Auto shut off valves (ASOV) are great for reverse osmosis systems and will allow your RO system to automatically turn on and off based on the activation of a float valve. Auto shut off valves do require a minimum of 40 PSI to operate correctly and can be installed on any style of reverse osmosis system that uses 1/4" tubing.
Auto Shut Off Kit Includes:
- Float valve
- 5ft of tube
- Inline check valve
- 1/4" auto shut off valve
*If you purchased a Bulk Reef Supply RODI unit you do not need this kit as it is already included with the system. You will only need to purchase a float valve to have the same functionality that this kit offers.

Nice product By John on 2/11/2017John would recommend this product to a friendI really like the product. Like the other reefers it takes the work away from having to constantly check 32 gallon Brute can to see if its full. Many times i have forgot to turn it off before I went to bed and wasted a lot of water. When the auto shutoff kicks in it shakes all of the lines and your like what the heck was that. The other issue was it did not come with instructions. I had to go to the website and download them.
Best Backup Device EVER!!! By Forsaken77 on 1/23/2016Forsaken77 would recommend this product to a friendI have a 43 gallon Brute can in my finished basement that I fill with plain RODI water. I usually set the alarm on my phone for 1 hour intervals to check it & shut it off.
This one particular time I got side tracked and forgot to set the alarm and the unit was left running, and overflowing, all night long. We had 3 inches of water in 3 carpeted rooms!
This baby is a lifesaver! I still use the alarm on my phone and this as a backup in case I forget to shut it down. I wouldn't rely solely on this unit to ahut the system down every time you make water. But it's a great backup device.
I would recommend having your can or recepticle empty when you install the float switch because it requires drilling through the pail and you don't want debris in your water. Also, uae a 1/2" drill bit.
This is something every RO unit should have on it. Super affordable price as well, considering the level of security it provides.
Marriage Saver By Joseph on 6/1/2015Joseph would recommend this product to a friendHow did I not have this before?!?! This must be a required item for anyone purchasing a RODI unit. I don't even know how many times I flooded my fish room because I forgot to turn off the RODI. Set up once and forget it exists. Easy set up and no more floods. Well at least not for that reason. I'd say that BRS could include some basic installation instructions but videos can be found online.
Good Kit! By Jeff on 3/12/2015Jeff would recommend this product to a friendA good quality auto top off kit and easy to install. I can't count how many times I've had to turn the car around because I forgot to turn off my RO/DI. Also, BRS has a good installation how-to video if needed. Highly recommended!
Definitely Needed By Travis on 3/9/2015Travis would recommend this product to a friendI went without an auto shut off kit for too long. This was quick to install, and I'm glad I can have some piece of mind when leaving my RO/DI unit running when not home.
Works very well - Great price! By StarFishMan on 2/27/2015StarFishMan would recommend this product to a friendThis coupled with the pressure switch to turn of the pump when the float is triggered is simply ideal. And I am sure works without the pump as well but for me I needed the extra pressure. Can't wait to start making huge volumes of RO/DI water now!!
Quick delivery By Nnema on 2/14/2015Nnema would recommend this product to a friendEverything you need at BRS.
better By hans24hrs on 12/15/2014hans24hrs would recommend this product to a friendIt works way better than other mass marketed one from pet store that have left my floor flooded.
You need this! By Terrie on 12/3/2014Terrie would recommend this product to a friendIf you make your own water with an RO/DI you need this! Inexpensive and will save you a lot of headache and worry! I not only ran my bucket over once but maybe 2 or 3 times lol Finally decided to check these out and see what there was to remedy my problem and here I have this cheap little part that I can't live without! LOL
Perfect! By Rico on 8/13/2014Rico would recommend this product to a friendI don't see how I ever made it this far. One flood and a second close call. This should be standard from day one. I will always have this!
works great! By Marc on 7/20/2014Marc would recommend this product to a friendStops the water perfectly and saves me from getting yelled at by the wife for forgetting to shut off the water again :)
Does what its suppose too! By Stephane on 5/15/2014Stephane would recommend this product to a friendMany times i left my RO Unit on and forgot about it. I ended up flooding a good deal of my basement. Lucky, that it didn't cause a lot of damage. However, letting water continue to go through the unit and having all that wasted water becomes quite "expensive wasted water". (flooding + new filters etc). I purchased this because i wanted to have it turned off in case i forgot.
When i received it i noticed it had all the parts needed. However i was unsure how to install. So i went on youtube and found a BRS how-to-install video. Which is simple and very clear. I had it installed within 5 minutes.
The kit works. after my container is filled the unit stops competently. That is, after all the filter containers become full of water to cause enough pressure to trigger the shut off valve.
I am now happy that i wont have to mob up!
