Horrible Design By Tony on 3/28/2013

The switches work fine, but the bracket is less than ideal. Lets start with the holes. They are drilled at almost the same size as the threads, so there is no "bite" from the screws. Out of 4 screws on two brackets, only ONE was able to tighten up.
As stated in other reviews, the long screw is not long enough for 3/16" sided sumps. You have to add a separate piece to take up the space. And again, the threads are non existent and the screw strips way too easy.
Worst purchase I have made from BRS! I will NEVER buy another one, I will build them myself instead of taking the easy way out.
Float switch problems By Migity1 on 1/17/2013

I was really disappointed with this float switch....
First my sump is rimless, so the screw to tighten it down is to short. Second, no matter how I assemble the bracket the floats are not adjustable to my water level. Also one of the locking screws won't tighten. And lastly,there is no snail/weed guard. (Didn't like soldering new plugs on the wires either.)

This was hands down the easiest upgrade I have done to my tank. Within 15mins of opening the box I had a functioning ATO. Very good product!!
No instructions, but that's ok. By Andrew on 9/13/2012

A bit of a pain to put together, since there are no instructions. However, I found a video of someone assembling it. The still picture on the site works well too--just something to figure out how the pieces of plastic fit together. The business end works well, and I haven't had any problems with salt creep causing the switch to fail, as one reviewer mentioned. I did solder mine to the wire harness and used some shrink tubing around it. Make sure whatever connection you use is waterproof.

Brought this for my rkl 2 and it's awesome
. Much easier then me always having to add the water. BRS is the best

works well, but the float can fail with salt buildup

Have this setup and working great with my Apex (Its a float switch... you can use it with any controller).
Only thing I don't like is that the set screw meant to mount it securely against the sump is too short. An extra scrap piece of acrylic fixed that issue. I'd buy again in a heartbeat

A bit price but, looks like a solid product. Only have had it for a few weeks but so far so good. Does what it needs to do. A bit of a hasle to figure out how to use it, but 15mins of tinkering with the Rkl and u should figure it out. No instructions needed.

All in one box and ready to go! installed for ATO and controlled by my Apex controller. Great quality and I like that they are adjustable!
Great Value, but alot of work By Keith on 4/21/2012

The brackets are not wide enough to fit over my sump lip. Fortunetly, I was able to attach it to one of the baffles. The wiring requires alot of extra work to configure and it requires water proofing the connections. You will likely need extra wire as the wire that comes with it may not be long enough. My RKE is about 4 feet from the floats. I spent about 3 hours on this part of the project just waiting for liquid tape to dry between coats. I would have preferred also that Digital Aquatics had an air pressure version of the device to cut down on cleaning later.
Works Well By Jim on 9/4/2011

Works really well and keeps my sumps water level. The float switch looks like it uses magnets to run so you shouldn't have to worry too much about electrical currents off the switch part. You will need a soldering iron and some shrink tubing cause you will need to attach the wires from the switch to the wires to the plug. You will also need a SL1 or SL2 to run this.
