Replaced Hydro-fill By peter on 10/7/2014
peter would recommend this product to a friend
I owned the IM Hydro-fill for about 6 months when the controller went out. I've only had the Tunze running for a couple of weeks but I like it better already. Triggers from slight water level drops and I like the idea of the built-in fail safe.
Only complaint is the pump is pretty loud.

Great product very reasonably priced By Randy on 5/30/2014

Love this little ATO system, and it's affordable for a Tunze product! I've had it for a week and it has been absolutely reliable with no fluctuation in my water level. My sump is a 10g aquarium with a heater, skimmer, and return pump all packed in, so it is a tight fit but it works. I left the cardboard separator between the two magnets because I had read that the magnets being too close can interfere with the float valve. It works like a charm and I couldn't be happier! Best $100 I have spent on my aquarium so far!
To the Top! By Taia on 5/21/2014

Tunze has a great product here! It has been working flawlessly to keep my tank topped up and my levels much more stable. It's really one of the most essential pieces of equipment you can buy, it's well made, but my only gripe is the quick connect from the pump to the controller itself. I'd prefer something a bit more salt creep proof! But overall, I'll be buying another one for my next tank as well!

installed this ATO on my 28 gal.nano cube.so far it's working great.now my cheap protein skimmer works a lot better because of the constant water level.pump's a little loud so I suspended just above bottom of container and now it's quiet.doing great so far.
Pretty OK By Benjamin on 4/10/2014

After avoiding a couple of floods when i first hooked it up, i think i finally have it dialed in. If the glass on where you are placing it, make sure to use a spacer, as the magnet affects the float. directions could be clearer about this. after I got it going correctly, i love it.

Installed this ATO on a Biocube 29. I had a little bit of an issue with the pump not shutting off properly after my initial install. After a short conversation with Tunze customer service we determined the switch was being interfered with by the magnet from my Tunze 9002 skimmer. I moved the switch to the other side of the return chamber away from the skimmer magnet, and it works like a charm!

Best ATO purchase By Oscar on 11/26/2013
Oscar would recommend this product to a friend
I love this ATO easy to put anywhere either in sump or in your tank. I love that it had magnets not suction cups that easily fall of and can dump water into your sump. I also, love that it includes its own pump without the need to purchase one and the replacement its cheap aswell.
Ok product, but be careful By Nano Pete on 11/26/2013
Nano Pete would recommend this product to a friend
After almost flooding my basement twice and contacting Bulk reef supply; I was contacted by Tunze technician and he worked with me to fix my problems. When attaching switch with magnet onto sump glass the maget affects the switch if the glass is too thin. I needed to shim between the two magnets for the switch to work properly. Also, be aware of creating a siphon from reservior to were your supplying ATO water. As far as quality; You get what you pay for...
Pros- works as advertised.
Cons- doesnt come with clear instructions
Excellent ATO By Michael on 11/25/2013
Michael would recommend this product to a friend
I just installed this in a Nuvo 24 and it's working excellent to keep my water level exactly where I want it. The pump can fit right into a 5 gallon polyurethane jug without modification, which is really nice if you don't have a special RO Reservoir. It was easy to assemble and install and the pump is quiet enough to not bother my wife.
My only two complaints of this system: I wish the control box had tabs to mount with screws to the interior of my stand and I would love for the control box to have some kind of LED that either indicates the unit is powered or that the pump is on. I feel like for the price a single LED in the control box isn't a crazy expectation. Other than that it's an excellent product.

works flawlessly. Only regret is not getting the bigger model with two sensors. the 5 second time out feature is great piece of mind however.

No issues so far. I installed this in an 8-gallon tank so I am especially happy for the auto-cutoff. Seems pretty solid!
upgrade By Red Fish on 10/4/2013

I purchased this nano because I was so happy with the 3155. May of this year.
It never really worked like it should, it had an electrical problem right away but I thought I could live with it until just stopped a few days ago. My hubby checked the electrical current and it did not have one.
So I am now purchasing the 3155 to replace this one. If you are trying to decide which one to go with. I HIGHLY recommend the 3155 even though it is more expensive. I wish I had.
Nano ATO jury still out By RikerBear on 9/26/2013

I bought two of these for my nano reef and for my FOWLR. The one for the nano works great...thenone on the FOWLR sticks and won't always activate (pump not float sensor).
I ordered a replacement pump, so we shall see how it works

I purchased this to complete my nano set up. I have a 24 gallon Nuvo by IM and this ATO compliments it well. I installed last night in about 15 minutes. Worked well when I tested it. It fits great in the back chamber.
One of the best additions to my tank! By Paul on 8/8/2013
Paul would recommend this product to a friend
Definitely one of the best additions to my tank so far. It was easy to set up, and I haven't had any issues with it yet. Throw the pump in a container with RO/DI, set the float where you want it, plug it in, and away you go. Water level is staying constant and salinity is stable. It's great! Going to eventually upgrade to the 3155 and use this for my QT/HT.

Installation was simple and easy to understand. Strong little pump. Has no problem pushing the water from the bottom of my stand to the top of the tank (JBJ 28 Gallon Nano Cube w/stand).
Working great. The magnetic mounting system is fantastic. By Arabo on 7/24/2013
Arabo would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this system to pump some distilled water from a 5 gallon water tank to a container that is about 10ft above. The pump was a bit too large to fit into the 5 gallon tank and I had to use a smaller submersible pump but the magnetic mounting system for the float valve alone was worth buying it.
BulkReefSupply offers great customer service and support.
