I have this setup currently for my system. While the instructions are not as straightforward as I'd like, there are plenty of videos online to learn how to set everything up. There are several ways to use this product which are part of what makes it good but also part of why the instructions are a little confusing. Nevertheless, it works great and worth the money IMO. Get it.

over 5 years and it is the best! By mathdoc on 5/22/2015

I have had one of these as my overflow system along with a 20 gallon food grade trash can filled with water plus some Kalk for over 5 years. When I first purchased it, I remember reading it might not last with kalkwasser. Well, 5 years and 1000s of gallons later, the unit is still functioning perfectly. When it dies someday, I will not think twice about purchasing any other brand. Don't think twice, this is the best top of on the market!

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.
Worth every dime! By Gerry on 5/14/2015

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.

A necessity By JonnyReefer on 3/19/2015

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

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.
