- Reverse Osmosis Adjustable Float Valve - Bulk Reef Supply
Why does BRS recommend this?
Float valves are simple to install and can save a lot of water from ending up on the floor. They can be installed in containers as small 1 gallon pails, sumps, and 200 plus gallon commercial storage containers to shut off the flow of water. Even if you do not have a large storage container a simple 5 gallon bucket with a float valve installed in it will help save money from having water end up on the floor or best case scenario just going down the drain.
Float valves are used to shut down your reverse osmosis system when the float is elevated. Float valves are typically installed on containers like large plastic food grade trash cans or other containers. Installation is as easy as drilling a small hole in the container, sliding the float in and attaching using the included nut.

does not shut off By Jessica on 4/12/2020Jessica wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFirst time it didnt shut off i was able to catch it before a flood. Adjusted the float to the lowest it would go and thought we were ok. Woke up to a flood. This plastic float does not shut off and water pressure is only at 60 for my R/O storage tank... Going back to the cheap brass swamp cooler float.
Failed within 2 months By Jose on 8/21/2019Jose wouldn't recommend this product to a friendJust finished cleaning and setting surface fans/dehumidifier in my basement. The float arm was in the highest position however the valve remained open. Looking now at possible redundancy in my RODI water system.
Stainless steel screw of float value By khai on 4/23/2019khai wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNot recommended for saltwater. The stainless steel screw will rush. Not safe for reef. Customer service said only use for freshwater.
Worked well By Will on 8/6/2018Will would recommend this product to a friendThis unit saved me from a flood when my Neptune optical sensor failed to recognize the water level. It is well built and I especially like the adjustable angle for the float.
One Small Problem By Steve on 4/20/2018Steve would recommend this product to a friendSimple to Install and works as designed BUT The stainless steel screw will rust over time if used as a float in aquarium sump or NSW holding tank. Make sure to angle adjustable float down if possible to prevent the metal parts from contacting saltwater.
Works well, but... By Jason on 2/7/2018Jason wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe metal parts rust slightly despite being stainless steel. Not safe for reefs. They need to make a non-metallic version or use titanium screws
Easy By Jeramy on 12/12/2017Jeramy would recommend this product to a friendEasy install
Don't overtighten By jon on 11/29/2017jon would recommend this product to a friendI loved this thing until i had to detach the tubing. When i reattached, i must have over tightened or something because its now leaking. I'm ordering a new one today because it is a must have. Hopefully this doesn't happen again
Easy Install By Carlos on 10/24/2017Carlos would recommend this product to a friendI have 2 of these, purchased one first to see if I liked it and it worked perfectly. the adjustable feature is also great if you drill the hole too low or too high. Works as described, not much too it.
Works Great By Kurtis on 11/21/2016Kurtis would recommend this product to a friendI had purchased a float from a company for about half the price of this one, but it didn't take long for it to start leaking. Should have purchased this float from the get go. Thanks BRS
Works great By John on 10/20/2016John would recommend this product to a friendI have 3 of these. 1 for mixing reservoir fill shut off, 1 for top off reservoir fill shut off and 1 for auto top off shut for my sump. They all work as designed, convenient adjustability and very cost effective.
Nice product! By Carlos Z on 9/17/2016Carlos Z would recommend this product to a friendArrived in great condition with my ro/di system. Perfect for the 35 gal tank I bought at Tractor Supply Co. Leak free and fully adjustable.
