Mixed feelings By Wolfentank on 5/16/2015
Wolfentank wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I've been using one of these for about 8 months or so, and I can't say that I love it or hate it. It's possible that my unit may have a defect as it will occasionally over fill and trigger the emergency alarm. At the same time I had a cheap $10 float switch/dosing pump set up on a nano tank that was flawless. Overall, this is a pretty good ATO and I do like the alarms. I wish it had some kind of switch to turn it off/on for when I'm doing water changes though.

The $200 dollar price tag is a little hard to swallow... But the peace of mind is completely worth it. Even though the instructions were a little hard to decipher because their English was badly translated(at least for me it was) the set up was simple and quick.
I did have a defect with the laser eye but BRS was super quick on getting squared away.

I got this ATO unit to replace an old JBJ unit I had on my 55 gallon. What a step up in quality. I really like the 2 sensors; the laser sensor to measure and monitor water level for the ATO and the float level for backup to prevent overfilling. Works like a champ! This unit has its own water pump which is a big plus. Made by Tunze in Germany. Build quality and engineering of a BMW.

I liked this ATO so well I bought a second one for a tank I have set up in another part of the house. Its simple to use and maintain. The instructions are almost too detailed, in my opinion, I had to read them several times but they are effective. I like the two different means of shut off, the electronic sensor and the float valve. BRS TV should consider a video installing one of these and setting up the electronic eye, to support the complicated instructions. Great product IME.

I pick this unit up two years ago on Black Friday and it's been running like a champ since. as the BRS YouTube video indicates the laser as well as the mechanical part of this provides a great backup is fairly easy to put together which sometimes is in the case with Tunze Products but this is been doing the job for two years.

It's so nice not having to get 3 half-gallon cups per day and bend down to refill my sump. And no more micro-bubbles! Although the little nut&bolt that holds the output line to the tank attachment was a PITA to get on, it was a breeze to set up.

This was easy to setup and get working. I never realized how much I hated having to manually top off my water until I put this in my system. Now I just check my water levels and the fresh water supply and this takes care of adding water as and when it's needed.

So far so good ! Have this set up on roughneck bin I'm using to cure my dry rock in. Works perfect and secondary safety offers great piece of mind. In the room one day when pump came on.. manually lifted float and audible alarm sounded and pump shut off. Very comforting to have a piece of equipment like this that is looking out for me ! If you are on the fence, JUST GET IT, you won't be disappointed.
fantastic ATO By Hawrasser on 2/11/2015
Hawrasser would recommend this product to a friend
this ATO is great. keeps the water level in my sump constant. the only thing i would change is to make the amount of travel on the floating switch a little bit larger. if i turn on my protein skimmer it will sound the alarm but my skimmer is also huge haha

Andrew would recommend this product to a friend
I have had this on an AIO tank (40 gallon) worked great the first week, now it keeps overfilling my tank( alarm going off) in the process of troubleshooting it with Tunze, hope i can get it to work correctly. I wish it worked right out of the box, but based on reviews the Tunze auto top off is suppose to be the best. I have owned other Tunze products before with no problems. Not bashing the auto top off but its not working out of the box. But Tunze customer service is great at helping.

I don't need to add anymore to those 200+ reviews but I put mine on a timer that only turned on once a day for 10 mins. That way it's not pumping all day long and will never over fill.
Works Great By John B on 1/10/2015

Easy set up and I love the optical sensor. My old ATO float valve would often not register the water level depleting and I'd have to refill the sump manually. No issues so far and don't anticipate any. I did have to run the top off line into the tank overflow since my storage container is taller than the sump, but there was plenty of supply hose and I actually like it better.

I've had this running for about 4 months now and it works flawlessly. It's really a set it and forget it product. The one quirky thing is that when it first turns on, it will pump water for a few seconds to purge the pump of any air. This is normal and not a but per say, but something to be aware of. I initially had this programmed on my Apex to only turn on a few times a day, but found that it was pumping too much water (due to the starting purge). So now I just leave it on 24 hours a day and it works fine.

I bought this to regulate the level in my sump, using RO/DI feed. I also purchased the optional valve. The setup is easy, especially because of the way that the two level sensors are cleverly mounted with the magnetic holder. I turned the water feed on on and everything worked like it was supposed to. Now I don't have to keep fiddling with my protein skimmer to get the right quantity skimmate.
Almost perfect By Jim on 12/27/2014
Jim would recommend this product to a friend
This is a really great ATO system. There is one downside. If you are pumping the water into your sump, the top level of the top off water container supply cannot be higher than the sump water level. The pump is centrifical, and allows water to flow through the pump when it is off. If the top off water is higher than the sump water, a siphon will occur, and water will continue to flow until the water levels equalize (including over-running the sump, and onto the floor. You simply need to select the right top off container.
ATO's Don't Get Better Than This! By Bernie on 12/20/2014
Bernie would recommend this product to a friend
The Tunze was superior to my first ATO set up which used a float valve and lifter pump. The optical sensor is great and having the second float valve to protect against overfilling is just a smart investment to protect not only your tank but the flooring around it.
I have a controller in which I could probably have set something up myself but for an all in one package this system is great.
Very Cool! By Trent on 12/16/2014
Trent would recommend this product to a friend
This is a great product. Easy to setup and trouble free.
One funny thing is that the way that the LED indicator lights are mounted inside the control box allows for "bleed over" from one light to another. So, in my particular case, the way that I have it mounted inside my cabinet makes the "Too High" appear to be lit when in fact it's the "Level" light. It took me a couple of plug-unplug cycles to figure that out.
But, it's great product. Recommended!

There have been a lot of additions to the ATO market over the last year or so. The Tunze 3155 Osmolator is stil the best unit on the market. Reliable and dependable. If you're undecided because of price, don't be...just buy it and be glad you did.

I have used two tunzes osmolators on different tanks and I have never had an issue. double back up (float sensor and auto times pump shut off) makes me not worrying about having water over flow. and all the install hardware added is always a bonus, like the return tube holder.

This is a great piece of gear. It has never failed on me. Once a year or six months or so, I'll clean the optical sensor from salt. It's in a 100g Rubbermaid stock tank. The pump is in a 32g Brute, and the top off goes through my kalk reactor first.

This seems to be working like a Charm. However I did have one issue with it right away, for some reason the pump wasn't working when I first plugged it in. I unplugged it for several hours and came back to it to see what the problem was and when I plugged it back in everything worked perfectly. It has kept my tank at a perfect level so far. I have it hooked up with a 5gal tank reservoir and it has given me less time worrying about water level and more time loving my tank!

I love this ATO!!! I don't ever have to add more water to my sump day in and day out. I have a 10 gal sitting inside tank stand and it lasts about 1 1/2 weeks before having to fill it again. There has been a few power surges since installing it. It has never failed to come back on or sound alarm. Thank You Tunze and Thank You BRS for carrying this item.

This unit has not failed once. I use Kalkwasser in my auto top water and the pump hasn't failed yet. The pump is a little bit loud but the BRS staff told me to pull the airline tubing out a little bit and it made it much quieter.

I have used the Tunze for two years now and it meets my expectations. One needs to take seriously the caution to not have the feeder hose under the surface of the aquarium water level. I flooded my office twice doing just that. Also, the pump has a 6 month to a year longevity and they go out without much fan fare. Keep a couple extra pumps, at 23 dollars, on hand. My final caution is not a fault of the unit but I have an auto feeder in my lower tank and when the feeder was too close to the optical sensor flakes of food caused the unit to think the tank was at level and it failed to fill. Keep the food as far away from the sensor as possible. Beyond these concerns, it is a great unit and very dependable.
