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

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

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.
Perfect for my Nano tank By MICKEY on 10/7/2013

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
Red Fish wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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
RikerBear would recommend this product to a friend
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.
Does what it needs to do! By Brett on 8/5/2013

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.
Easy and high quality By Chris on 6/6/2013

Although pricey, this system includes everything you need to safely and easily automate top offs, minus a reservoir. The builtin safety features keep your tank from overflowing or constantly running the pump in an empty reservoir.
Very nice little nano ATO By tim on 6/3/2013

Small...perfect for nanos. Not all the bells a whistles as the full version, but for a nano, you can't beat it. Solid product, very strong magnets.
Great for a 45 gallon tank with 15 gallon sump By Butters17 on 5/24/2013

Ive been using this product for about 6 months now. Has not failed me yet. This is a must have for saltwater tanks, keeps water levels/salinity the same. my only regret is not getting this sooner..
When i eventually get a larger tank ill get the bigger tunze osmolator for sure.

Budget Friendly By Victor D on 4/30/2013
Victor D would recommend this product to a friend
More than enough for my 29g Biocube
Easy to set up (Except the tube for the pump)
Only runs for 1.8 seconds but can be boosted up for bigger tanks. (No fear of flooding)
Float has to be Installed PERFECTLY Vertical. Mine got stuck on the first day. Luckily I was in front of the tank. I knocked the sensor and it stopped pumping.
No alarms. The motor will just pulse every 10 secs. You wont hear it unless the room is silent.
Does what its suppose to. If you're on a budget its a good buy. In hindsight wish I would have held out to buy the reg Osmolator with the alarms and laser eye!
Great Product By Justin on 3/24/2013

This is a great solution, especially for a nano reef. The magnet mounts are strong, and I am confident they will hold in place. The unit itself is tiny, and pretty inconspicuous, even if going into a display tank rather than a sump. The only drawback I see is it is a bit noisy when compared to my other tank, which I use an aqualifter on for the ATO.. but it is not obnoxiously loud.
1 bit of info that might be useful to include in the product description is the diameter of the pump. This could be important depending on the top off container that is used. For my purposes, I used a small potable water container designed for a boat or RV. The biggest opening was 1.75 inches, which I thought would be ok for the pump. Turns out the pump diameter is 1/8" larger, so I had to cut a new hole in the tank using a hole saw. No big deal, but would have been nice to know the size before ordering.
