awesomeness By ReeferDre on 8/15/2014ReeferDre would recommend this product to a friendI've used a good amount of ATO over the years and this is by far the easiest to set up,use, and clean. The directions could be a bit better but as a product itself absolutely awesome. I wish all reefing products worked as well as this. I have replaced the all ATO's I have with these.
Works as described, no problems here and easy set up!!! By Michael on 8/6/2014Michael would recommend this product to a friendSet up was super easy, I installed it, tested it, and have been using it problem free. I needed a good ATO to stabilize water levels in sump. I'm using it on Aqueon Proflex Sump #3 and its a great addition. My OCD made me use some 3m stickies on the output tubing holder instead of screwing it on the acrylic and it holds great! Ya, it's rockin' like Dokken lol!
Works awesome in Picotope By Ben on 7/18/2014Ben would recommend this product to a friendI have this ATO in my picotope and it always keeps the water level within 1/4" in the tank. Pump is quiet and I've never experienced the beeping issues that other's have talked about.
My no hassle procedure for a water change is:
-Turn off ATO
-Replace water to level where I want it
-Turn ATO on
Done, no alarms or anything like that - going on 6 months with this unit.
Durring setup you love it but then... By shawn on 7/2/2014shawn wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe safety features sound great but seem to also cause headaches. It is set with a 48 hr no fill alarm that isn't mentioned in the booklet. After setup if it's not activated to fill within the 48 hrs the alatm goes of with blue light. The book says the blue light means misalignment or the lense needs to be cleaned. So you clean it and check alignment, reset it by pulling out power plug. 48 hrs it goes off again. If your tank doesn't evaporate that quickly I dont see a way around this repetitive annoying alarm. It could be a very nice little ATO but appears to be to smart for my setup.
Same problem . Beeping all times By Not good ato on 6/22/2014Not good ato wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBeeps all times , not very accurate . Won't recomend
Use with float switch for backup By pleco on 6/21/2014pleco would recommend this product to a friendIt works well most of the time, but should only be used with a back-up float switch to turn it off in case of high water level. Product worked flawlessly for me for the last two weeks until this morning when it malfunctioned and overfilled the sump, emptying the 10G reservoir over the course of one hour.
Best ATO ever By Nickbruh on 6/4/2014Nickbruh would recommend this product to a friendI have a 15 gallon rimless cube with sps and Los and designer zoas
I was a big beleive in toppin off manually everyday ... Mad was I dumb with this ato I mean it comes with piping , a pump, I mean literally everything and was so dan easy to setup literally don't let the 149$ price tag fool you, this thing is fool proof I've been in the game for 6 months so I'm new to it if I knew this was the best ato I would have gotten it earlier , iHaTE float switches thy are ugly and too much wiring for me especially for a smaller tank with no sump a know
Awesome Product By lwood on 5/24/2014lwood would recommend this product to a friendVery efficient and easy to put together, not at all complicated like most ATO's easy of use is 10/10. Sleek design for smaller systems such as mine. I will give it a 7/10 on price but it more than makes up for it in efficiency.
Wow. Works as advertised. By HappyRC on 5/19/2014HappyRC would recommend this product to a friendKeeps my salinity in check. More importantly, when I am away from home for more than 1 week, my water level would get so low that I'd risk my overflow running dry. This ato device assures that my overflow will never run dry.
My acrylic aquarium is a little thicker than the 1/2 inch that the product says it can do so I taped some Velcro below it to keep it from sliding down.
NOTE: the device must be attached to a CLEAR glass/acrylic.
awesome!!! By amerykno on 5/6/2014amerykno would recommend this product to a friendthis is an amazingly simple and excellent working product.
