    If I already have the RKL Plus and wanting to buy this kit, then will I need anything else to connect the float switch to the RKL?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Terrance,
    The float switches themselves will plug directly into the switch ports on the SL1 module (which you should have with the plus system) so you shouldn't need anything else.

    hi, can these switches be used with the lite reefkeeper lite system, plus be used on your brs 2 part dosing pump, to automate my kalkwasser stirrer, it will be adding fresh water through the kalk stirrer for evaporated water. Thanks so much for your help.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Raymond,
    The switches can be used with the Reef Keeper Lite system, but keep in mind that (whether it is a lite or elite) you need to have an SL1 module for the switches to interface with.

    Can i use this with an Apex?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi James,
    The float switches themselves and bracket will work just fine. You will just run the wires straight to the Apex Breakout Box instead of hooking them up to the DA molex connectors.

    Ok thanks. Another question. Most of the float switches have something in the description about wattage or amperage and damages. Is the ReefKeeper Lite compatible with the included OR purchased float switches without the need for something in the middle to limit voltage/etc?


    Example:

    A 50 watt float switch can be destroyed by a pump rated at 6 watts and, unfortunately, it may take many cycles before the failure occurs.

    Because they can destroy an otherwise very reliable float switch, care must be taken to completely isolate the switch from the current drawn by pumps, solenoids or other devices subject to spiking voltage. Resistors or diodes may be used, but the most common solution is to utilize a circuit board or a relay.

    In the illustration, a relay acts as a switch for a pump, thereby isolating the float switch from any spikes that the pump may draw. The float switch turns the relay coil on and off. In this way, the only current handled by the float switch is that small amount required by the relay coil. Please consult with your relay supplier to assure that the relay current requirements are well within the specs of the float switch.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Phillip,
    A float switch is just an open/closed switch but it doesn't actually produce any electricity. In the case of the reef keeper systems they are outputting there own safe voltage through the float switch and then monitoring to see if that current comes back (switch closed) or not (switch open). The reef keeper will only output a small amount of DC current to do this and then that signal is used to control a relay (one of the outlets on the PC4) on or off which is where all the high current goes. So basically it does what the last sentence in your paragraph says.

    Does the signle bracket still come with two floats?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Joe,
    It does not. The single kit comes with a single bracket and single float, the dual kit comes with two of each.

  • by Phillip on January 24, 2014, @8:22 AM

    Can this be used directly in my main display tank? It looks like the brackets are quite long and my water level is about an inch from the top of the display tank.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Phillip,
    The brackets are definitely designed with a sump in mind. The float switches themselves would work but you would for sure need a different mounting solution (or the water tank in your display would be a lot lower).

Full Details

Each kit comes with programming instructions and an installation guide to help you get up and running quickly. Our configurable mounting brackets will work with almost any tank or sump application. The floats are fully submersible and made of a long lasting rugged plastic compound that is reef safe. Our mounts are made of aquarium-grade acrylic and are also reef safe, as is all provided hardware.

  • Works great By In DA mix on 3/22/2015

    This is by far the best product DA has to offer. I use it in my sump with my Apex.
  • Work great By Chavinpat on 2/13/2015

    I brought two of Dual Bracket ReefKeeper Float Switch Kit to use with my APEX controller for my ATO, low ATO reservoir, low sump, and skimmer waste container. I decided to get these kits, because they come with bracket kit. I have these for year now, so far no problem.
  • Perfect By Tdog208 on 12/30/2014

    Got these for my Neptune BOB to control ATO and alarms. Everything I needed came just had to clip off the connector and solder the wires to make it reach the BOB.
  • Would recommend By Kyle on 11/4/2014

    These float valves are simple, generic float valves, that fit easily into the brackets. I did not have any problems with the threaded holes like other reviewers did. I find that with the brackets the valve can be placed anywhere between around 3 to 10 inches below the rim the bracket hangs onto.
  • Stripped threads By STeve on 11/3/2014

    The threads were stripped out. . Wish I had gone with a better setup.
  • hole pre-stripped By Reefking on 11/1/2014

    The holes on one of the mounting brackets was completely stripped out. Bad craftsmanship and no quality control.
  • Just what I was looking for By Eddie KMD on 9/6/2014

    I needed these float switches and brackets to use with my Apex breakout box in my sump. I used double sided 3M tape to secure the brackets and did not use the screws but they threaded just fine for me. Its a versatile kit and I'm glad I could find these brackets. They are not easy to find, at least for me.
  • So far works wonders By logan on 8/13/2014

    Stability is king. After 6 months of doing manual top offs I got lazy and purchased an auto top off setup. Within a week coral extension improved and many of my zoas seem to have doable their rate of growth. So far this has worked seamlessly with my reefkeeper light.

    A few complaints however. The bracket came in black not clear as was shown. The bracket does not fit well with my sump. Worst of all though is that I had to manually screw the wires together using wire nuts that were not supplied in the purchase.
  • Great Product By Geoff on 4/17/2014

    I'm currently using two with the Reefkeeper lite plus and they've worked fine for me for a couple months now no problems. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to program it with my aqualifter ato pump but the switches seem like they'll last plenty long enough for me to be satisfied. For the price I have two more in a box in case one fails.
  • great switch By valerie on 3/8/2014

    Purchased this set to go with our RKL Plus, very easy to hook up. We had to add a spacer where you would tighten to the sump since the screw wasnt long enough, but thats it. We coupled this with the Tom aqua pump, had it set up in minutes, tested it, and worked perfectly.
  • Great float switch By Bradley on 2/16/2014

    Have had this float switch for 6 or so months now and have not had one problem with it. I'm using it in the return chamber in my sump so snails and crabs are not a issue.
  • Simple design seems fail-proof By Mtthbrook on 2/9/2014

    I like the simple design they work good, one word of caution they are weak where they heat the acrylic to bend the brackets , So do not over tighten them to the top of your aquarium or you may break the bracket like I did with one of mine.
