The Tunze switched socket outlet allows you to utilize any pump with your Osmolator ATO. While the included pump is great for a vast majority of users, there are some instances where you may need a slower pump or one with more head pressure. This is where the switched socket outlet comes in. Connect outlet to Osmolator: -Locate the end of the wire coming out of the connector. -Loosen the small screws to remove the terminal block and expose wire. Adjust power: -Ensure all component are unplugged from the wall, or any energized electrical connections, and unscrew the control box. -Locate the potentiometer, which is a small dial, used to set the power anywhere from nano to max. Note: the instructions state the max setting is required when using the switched socket outlet, presumably because to maximize the signal. Your Tunze Osmolator is now configured to control the AC outlet rather than the included DC pump and you are ready to plug in any basically aquarium pump up you like! FYI for the rest of you that are using the standard DC pump that comes with the Osmolator; this dial will change the speed and height at which the Osmolator pumps water. The nano setting has a max pumping height of 1 meter, medium of 2.8 meters and the max will pump water as high as 3.8 meters.
