  7. Installing the Neptune ATK Top Off System - BRStv How-To

    Installing the Neptune ATK Top Off System - BRStv How-To

    Installing the Neptune ATK is pretty simple especially since it comes with everything you need. The ATK uses a few different technologies to help make it be the safest ATO on the market today. Between dual optical level sensors and a backup float valve the safety doesn't end there. It also has IQ Fill which is a smart algorithm that will monitor how much it takes to fill your tank and if something were to go wrong it will never pump more than twice as much water as your tank may need. Installation is pretty straight forward, placing the magnetic sensor in your sump or return pump compartment to monitor the changing water level. Place the pump in your favorite ATO reservoir (we like the Trigger Systems ATO Containers) and plug everything into the FMM module. The ATK does not even need an Apex Controller to function. If you have an Apex, you get bonus features, however, without a controller, the ATK will work just fine.

    Week 16: ATO: Reducing daily maintenance, safely! | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160

    Dealing with evaporation is a critical component of tank stability and protecting your equipment. Here is our take on the various methods of replenishing freshwater lost to evaporation then a complete install of the automatic top off system on our BRS160. Every aquarium is going to evaporate water, but this is especially severe in a reef aquarium. Reef tanks typically have substantial surface area with considerable amounts of internal water flow and surface agitation and most often don't have a tight lid. It is common for average sized reef tanks to evaporate anywhere from one to four gallons a day. The effects of evaporation are primarily with stability because as water evaporates, H2O molecules leave the tank but the salt and all of the other elements and dissolved compounds in your tank water stays behind. The concentration of these elements and nutrients will rise and parameters will shift. Once you add freshwater back into the tank to

  10. Super easy install of the Tunze Osmolator 3155 ATO & why we love it.

    Super easy install of the Tunze Osmolator 3155 ATO & why we love it.

    http://brs.li/TunzeOsmolator The Tunze Osmolator 3155 is easily the most popular auto top off that we sell; it's purchased 5 times as often as any other ATO on our site! It's one of our favorites, too, because of it really sets itself apart from other ATO's with reliability, safety, mounting options and future flexibility. While pretty much any auto top off will be safe to use for a year or so, we want our tanks up for many years so reliability is one of our top concerns. A lot of ATO's rely on float switches for their primary level control, which in the long run fail pretty frequently since they rely on moving parts to function. The Osmolator uses an optical eye which a completely different technology to monitor the water level. This doesn't have any moving parts, and I've personally never seen this fail in the on position. In addition, the Osmolator has a safety float switch as a back-up sensor. Even if that somehow failed, it's equipped with a 10-minute internal timer to turn
