Mixed feelings By Wolfentank on 5/16/2015

I've been using one of these for about 8 months or so, and I can't say that I love it or hate it. It's possible that my unit may have a defect as it will occasionally over fill and trigger the emergency alarm. At the same time I had a cheap $10 float switch/dosing pump set up on a nano tank that was flawless. Overall, this is a pretty good ATO and I do like the alarms. I wish it had some kind of switch to turn it off/on for when I'm doing water changes though.

The $200 dollar price tag is a little hard to swallow... But the peace of mind is completely worth it. Even though the instructions were a little hard to decipher because their English was badly translated(at least for me it was) the set up was simple and quick.
I did have a defect with the laser eye but BRS was super quick on getting squared away.

I got this ATO unit to replace an old JBJ unit I had on my 55 gallon. What a step up in quality. I really like the 2 sensors; the laser sensor to measure and monitor water level for the ATO and the float level for backup to prevent overfilling. Works like a champ! This unit has its own water pump which is a big plus. Made by Tunze in Germany. Build quality and engineering of a BMW.

I liked this ATO so well I bought a second one for a tank I have set up in another part of the house. Its simple to use and maintain. The instructions are almost too detailed, in my opinion, I had to read them several times but they are effective. I like the two different means of shut off, the electronic sensor and the float valve. BRS TV should consider a video installing one of these and setting up the electronic eye, to support the complicated instructions. Great product IME.

I pick this unit up two years ago on Black Friday and it's been running like a champ since. as the BRS YouTube video indicates the laser as well as the mechanical part of this provides a great backup is fairly easy to put together which sometimes is in the case with Tunze Products but this is been doing the job for two years.
