My only complaint is the relay I put the system together like the instructions said, and the next day herd the relay buzz for a few seconds off and on for 5 minutes every now and then. So I ended up removing the relay and replacing it with a fuze holder and fuze (5-8 amp just to save the switches). Now the switches flip and the pump kicks on with no noise just smooth operation. I use the Aqua Lifter Vacuum Pump it is very quite i would recommend this pump for the system...
Good product easy to install By Cord on 1/15/2012

this product was real easy to install and assemble. float switches work like a charm. if there was a con to the product at all it would be that the relay switch makes a clicking sound every time the float switch activates it. this is not really noticeable if placed under the tank near the sump or behind cabinets. over all i am happy with the price and ease of this product
great deal By tommy on 11/28/2011

Great Value By Dizzle on 11/10/2011

Just set this up and it's been running about a week. This is a great little ATO for the price. It was very easy to follow the included instructions (lots of photos). The relay is pretty loud and the sensor is pretty sensitive. My pump normally kicks on and off repeatedly for about 2 minutes and then I don't hear it again for a couple of hours. My only concern with it is that it does take up two plugs instead of just one. But for the extra $60 I saved I can live with it.

Great product, but had a small problem about a week after it was installed. The relay "broke" for apparently no reason. I email the manufacturer and they sent a new relay right away. I couldn't wait so I took it to Radio Shack, they had the part for $7. Now, I have a back up just in case.

Anything to make it simplier! By Phil on 5/4/2011
Phil would recommend this product to a friend
This is a great little DIY kit. Got it all set up with no problems. Instructions were easy to follow, the only problem I see is that even with a 'slosh/snail guard' it still needs to be paid attention to. Only of my floats, in a guard is not traveling correctly and making the on/off as smoothly as it should. Gets partially there and the relay will buzz for a second or two before kicking on or off. This is just maintenance and probably just needs cleaning, I'm guilty of ignoring it. Besides that, works great... been set up and using for 3 months with no issues. Just make sure cleaning the switches is added to your maintenance schedule.
Great Top Off By Shayne on 11/27/2010

This top off was very simple to put together with the supplied instructions. I have a aqualifter pump on the unit and it works great.
Awesome value for the money By firebirdude on 9/13/2010

I'll echo what the others have said. It's a kit that works, for cheap. I'm going to go ahead and say the kit is flawless...with the following exceptions. Biggest thing that bugs me is that the relay is really loud. Each time it kicks on/off, I can hear it throughout the room. Add that to the fact the float switch is pretty sensitive, it's clacking every 2 minutes. Second thing that keeps it from being completely perfect is not the kit's fault. It's the float switches. I've already had one get stuck in the up position. (No water pumping in, sump ran very low) I just beat on it a little bit to bang the reeds inside around. Been working fine for months now.
Awesome top off By Todd on 3/12/2010

This will do anything the name brands will do at a huge savings . It requires that you put it together but as long as you can read and follow the directions to a tee it is simple. You can have an Auto top-off . A small tip instead of cutting into the wire of a aqualifter or other pump just use a cheapy lamp type extension cord and you can hook up as many things as you have outlets for.I dose Kalk and top-off with RO at the same time it runs about 3 times an hour. But you cant even hear the aqualifters run just a slight trickle of water WARNING:To avoid siphoning back out of your tank dont submerge the line in your sump.
Works Great! Very Happy. By IbnOzn on 12/14/2009

I bought one of these about 6 months ago. It was pretty simple to put together, the directions were easy to follow and it works very well. I have an Aqualifter on it for the topoff and also a Maxijet to circulate the water in my reservoir. The only issue might be that the magnetic float switch can be sensitive and will tend to buzz if situated right next to another magnet such as a large pump— but literally we're talking right next to. Mine sits about 4" from my return pump in the same sump compartment though and works just fine. I'd definitely buy another one of these and would recommend it to other people.
