Well constructed with magnets that will hold it wherever you want. Works well in a RSM 130D.
Worth the extra cash By JOEL on 1/29/12

Although this product is one of the more expensive top-off systems, you have so much already invested that it is nice not to rely solely on float switches and flood your house. Worth the extra cash in my opinion.
Does the job By Aaron on 1/20/12

Overall it is a great product. I have not experienced any malfunctions and the holder for the float switch and eye is very convenient. It does what it is supposed to do. However, I do have a few complaints.
1) The pump automatically pumps about a cup of water each time the pump is turned off. That means, if you dose kalk with your ATO as I do and your APEX turn the pump off because the pH is too high, as soon as it turns back on it pumps more high pH into the tank. Not a good feature. I'm sure it's to maintain constant flow through the tubing after it has been resting, but a manual button for this would be better
2) When the ATO alarm goes off, the only way to turn it off is to power down the ATO. Which means when you turn it back on, AGAGIN, it pumps more water into your tank. A button for this would also be better.
3) Eh...I guess it could be a little more attractive. Kind of an ugly black box.

Finally got around to setting this up yesterday and it was easy as cake. 5 minutes out of the box and rolling. Everything you need for easy, dependability, and redundancy - could not have asked for a better ATO. Must have.

GOT THIS ATO A WHILE BACK, JUST WANTED TO TEST IT OUT BEFORE I POSTED A REVIEW..."IT'S A WINNER" LOVE THIS ATO UNIT. VERY ACCURATE - ALSO LOVE THE MAGNET DESIGN. I ALSO PURCHASE A SPARE PUMP, IN THIS HOBBY YOU NEVER KNOW WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN. AT LEAST WHEN IT DOES HAPPEN , I'LL HAVE A SPARE.

I was a little skeptical after the instructions stated that this pump was not meant to handle large tanks. Let’s just say the pump works fine for my 370 gal. I have the ATO dripping into the sump and don’t take long for the water level to stabilize. I love this product; it keeps my skimmer stable and saves me a numerous trips of dumping water in tank.
Best ATO on the Market! By Adam on 10/20/11

This ATO has saved me from carrying heavy 5 Gal buckets back and forth across the house, and the two different sensor technologies give me a sense of security when it come to functioning properly and not becoming being stuck in the on position and overdosing kalk!
A quality top off unit. By Bob on 10/18/11
Bob would recommend this product to a friend
I found this top off unit easy to set up and comes with everything you need(no extra pump or valve needed). I would highly suggest this product as the first choice. The only drawback I found is when installing the magnet sensor mount in the tank (instead of a sump) I found the trim along the top of the tank will stop the outer magnet from going as high up on the tank as I wanted but, the remedy is as easy as a clamp or tank silicone adhesive. I am using an old 5 gallon salt bucket for my top off water. I added a float valve and enough 1/4" line to reach the RO/DI system in the basement so I dont have to hall the top off water up 2 flights of stairs to fill the bucket. I installed a ball valve on this line and only turn it on when the bucket needs to be filled. Works great!
