Works like a charm By chris on 10/25/2014

I bought this ATO 6 months ago and it has worked just as advertised. I really like how it tops off the water often and in small amounts. Its very quiet and SUPER easy to install. The only downside of the system is that the power cord for the pump is pretty short. You can buy an extension for 20 bucks though. I liked it so much i bought a second one for my other tank. i did have a problem with the second where it sensed that the water was low and started pumping in water and never stopped. I contacted the company and i had a replacement in my mail box in 3 days. amazing product.
overfilling condition fix By Patrick on 10/20/2014

CON: instruction manual didn't tell you everything.
PRO: easy to install, no moving parts (float switches) smart controller.
FIX: must overflow conditions occurs do to siphon not breaking from reserve tank to sump, or aquarium. Using the right amount of return tubing and running your line so the siphon breaks after a fill prevents over fill errors. NOTE: as with any ATO I advise you never have too big of an reserve, only enough so you don't cause salinity issues.
So Simple but robust By CodeWorker on 10/2/2014

After reading many about many other products i got this one. very simple to hook up, easy to use, and works with out any floats. It does keep track of how much water is pumped. so if it goes over that amount it will shut off and beep to let you know there is a problem. I have had it work and protect me from adding to much fresh water when i did a water change. i forgot to shut it off and after it added the normal 2 cups it stopped and beeped. it tops off quick and has worked flawless for 6 months now. I am planing on using one on a 16 gallon nano tank soon.

it works too! yes more expensive but super easy, appears to be reliable, and good for reefers like me that aren't too "tech-eee" and don't wanna worry about 2 float switches and keeping them working properly. just do it, do it.
awesomeness By ReeferDre on 8/15/2014

I'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 8/6/2014

Set 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 7/18/2014
Ben would recommend this product to a friend
I 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 7/2/2014
shawn wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
The 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.

Use with float switch for backup By pleco on 6/21/2014
pleco would recommend this product to a friend
It 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.
