Not typical Tunze quality By Mark on 2/27/2017
Mark wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Bought this thinking I would be getting the same quality as it's big brother, but this one is complete garbage. The pump has failed on me several times, requiring me to unplug it and plug it back in. Luckily I caught it quickly each time, but I definitely wouldn't trust this if I went on vacation. Also, unlike it's big brother, this ATO only has one sensor (a float sensor) that is prone to getting stuck. I would recommend only getting the bigger osmolator or using a different brand that uses an optical sensor.
Pump Issues By Matthew on 2/23/2017

There appears to be issues with pump quality of these units. The pump that shipped with my nano could only develop about 2 inches of head.
Tunze sent me a second pump which seems to be ok.

I bought this with the idea it would make my life easier. The first pump failed and Tunze replaced it. The second pump ran great for @ a week then stopped filling up the tank unless I unplugged it and plugged it back in. They are now sending a third pump however I'm not holding my breath. Had I known this would happen I would have purchased another model.
Excellent product By Richie D on 11/4/2016

Sure is convenient not having to add to-off water all the time. Just went away for the weekend and didn't have to worry about whether or not the gravity fed system I had always used would work or not. Many times I would come home to find the pump sucking air and the aquarium down about 4 inches. Not this time! While it is very expensive, it does save a lot of headaches and potential loss of fish and corals. Absolutely recommend it.

I brought this for my Red Sea max 250 rimless . It has a small tank that I use a 5 gal bucket to keep full. Keeping salinity if important in maintaining a stably ecosystem .
Part #4017.000 Controller Osmolator nano device By Max on 8/3/2016
Max wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I have written to the company in Germany to try to get a new part #4017.000 Controller Osmolator Nano device. I have to unplug the device and reconnect it every cpl days to get the unit to work properly to top off. It makes a noise like it wants to pump water to my reef tank but will not until I unplug the device and re-connect it then it works for a day or two. I hope I can get a replacement part as I only bought this from BRS beginning of July last month. I sent the scan of my invoice to the company in Germany as well so waiting on a response.

Auto shut off By Chris on 7/2/2016
Chris wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
The float sensor got stuck on and the pump did not turn off. The auto turn off did not work. Luckily the story revisor was almost empty and my tank did not overflow. I don't trust it any more need to upgrade to the one with the optical sensor.
Great nano ATO By Tommy on 6/13/2016

I installed the Tunze nano ATO in my Corallife Biocube 29. I placed it in the 3rd chamber with the return pump. So far it works perfectly. It has helped stabilize the tank and my corals could not be happier. Great little ATO.

My experience is mix. The product works well for 10 days then stopped. Tunze customer service replace the pump and is wrking fine now. Just the trouble of not wrking and having to contact Tunze for replace part.
