Easy setup, straightforward indicators, and well priced. I haven't had any issues at all in months of use, and little to no build-up on the floats. I do still clean them with my sump maintenance, and splash some water on them to stave off salt creep now and again. I do like having the second float as an off switch as recommend by the BRS video. Will buy again if I need another.

I recently had this product working well for about a month or two. Switched it to a different tank and now the red light goes on for instilling water and does not go off, switched sensors, power on and off, no kinks in sensors, it just does not work. Very disappointing. Had a great start

Biggest thing I found was that if I have power outages even for a minute or two when the power comes back on the ATO turns on the pump for about 10 seconds "no matter what the water level is". If you have several power stops and starts like when they are trying to get the power on after a storm you could end up with a flood.

Came out of box looking good, but after setting up it does not want to turn on the pump when needed. Just lights up red indicating water level low, but the relay does not turn on unit. Disappointing!
Works Great! By Reefer on 2/4/2015

I've had this unit up and running for 5 months now with no issues what so ever. Very easy to set up and install. I clean the float off that sits in my sump once a month to make sure no debris is caught in it and can cause it to malfunction. I like the different install options you can do with this unit. I have my floats installed so one is in my sump and tells it when the water level is low, and the other is in my reserve pump so it kills power to my pump when the water level gets too low so it won't burn out my pump.

I use to use a on/off timer to add RO water throughout the day, the JBJ is SO much easier.

Took me a little while to get it up and running, but my tank has been rock solid since. Great buy so far!

Worked fine for about a year of course is that in the box for about six months before I plugged it in. After which the relay started to not always switch on the pump. It would light up appropriately but not turn on the switch untell you power cycled the JBJ. Took me a while to figure this out. I spoke to JBJ at reef conferences And they seemed eager to help me.of course once I contacted them then they never responded to any correspondence and were of no help. So I programmed my controller to turn the thing off and on three times an hour so hopefully one of those times the relay would work appropriately. Now in the market for a new auto top off
7 years and counting By Jason on 11/18/2014

I have bought 2 of these over the years and still use both of them. I spent $10 at HD for a small acrylic sheet and built a box with 'teeth' at the top and small holes all over it, in a corner to keep the floats in and keep the snails, hermits, and other creatures out. Just clean the floats once every 4-6 months.
I have one float at my 'full level' (max water level - turns the pump off) and one float at my 'fill level' (minimum water level - turns pump on) inside the box.
7 years and counting for my first one and the second one 2 or so years, for my quarantine tank.
Note: you can unscrew the cover and re-adjust the timer for the pump.
