- SV-1 Solenoid Valve - Neptune Systems
Perfect for controlling your RODI system, top off system, calcium reactor, or other low flow items that use 1/4" tubing. The solenoid valves uses the 24V accessory port found on 1Link modules and the EnergyBar 832.
Solenoid Valve (SV-1)
This 24VDC powered, normally-closed (NC), solenoid valve has push-fit tubing input and outputs designed for standard 1/4″ tubing. The electrical connection on this solenoid valve fits the DC24 accessory ports found on the FMM, 1Link, and Energy Bar 832 products. Common uses include safety stops for RODI systems, CO2 systems on calcium reactors, and many other places where you want to control the on/off flow of water, air, or other gasses.
Adapting soft 1/4" tubing can be done easily with a 1/4" stem x 1/4" barb adapter.
This solenoid valve can also be used with our standalone 24VDC power supply (not included) if you do not own one of the above products and want to use this solenoid valve with your Energy Bar 8 or Energy Bar 4.
Stay away By Michael on 12/29/2019Michael wouldn't recommend this product to a friendConstantly failing on CO2 reactor. Piece of junk
Works as expected By Raphael on 12/13/2019Raphael would recommend this product to a friendI have this solenoid connected to my Apex to automatically fill my ATO when low. It works as expected and is able to handle RO units that use a booster pump. No complaints. Just make sure you purchase the power adapter as well.
Great idea, not so great product By Paul on 11/27/2019Paul wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBought this to use on my R/O directly plumbed to my sump. The solenoid failed around 6 months. More of a hassle to use. Going back to the old pump in a bucket.
really low flow By Gary on 8/30/2019Gary wouldn't recommend this product to a friendwhen hooked up to my gravity DI tank, it would slowly drip when open. Way too slow. I opened it up as i needed it now and now slowly drips when off. found different solution.
Failed within a month By Joseph on 1/1/2019Joseph wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFailed within a month. Used for RO water. Now have to mail in old, have inspected and a new one shipped. Kind of a hassle.
Does not do what it's designed to do. By Dexter Jay on 12/12/2018Dexter Jay wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI had this unit connected to my RODI line controlled by my ATK to top up my sump, but it would not completely stop the flow of water as if it wasn't strong enough for the source pressure. Save your monies time and frustration, don't buy this one.
Corroded and SHorted out By Patrick on 10/8/2018Patrick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendCould not figure out where my tin was coming from - I believe I found it. This unit must have gotten some salt splashback and corroded and then shorted out - brown rust dripping into sump. Using it at end of ATO Saltwater to be a secondary syphon preventor. Not happy but for $29 I guess I should not complain - warning saltwater users.
Instructions are lacking details By Robert on 9/24/2018Robert would recommend this product to a friendI had to return it to Neptune for repair/evaluation. I’m using it to control the CO2 flow for my calcium reactor. I installed a check valve on the needle valve on my CO2 regulator and then attached tubing to the solenoid. Turns out that the solenoid is not suitable for saltwater contact, so the check valve needs to be in line after the solenoid to keep it from getting wet (fresh water is fine). I don’t have a complete resolution from Neptune yet, but it looks like they are going to fix or replace it. Only problem is, I had to send it for evaluation, so my calcium reactor is running without a controller until the problem is resolved. My biggest complaint is that the product description and instructions didn’t mention that it isn’t salt water compatible. Basically it failed straight from the box, and I’m jumping through lots of hoops to get it fixed.
so far so good By Jim on 12/28/2017Jim would recommend this product to a friendThis valve works nicely on the accessory port of the 1link module so no additional outlets are needed. I am using it to control Top-off water going to my Kalk Stirrer. Have not had it long, but it is working well so far. Let us hope that the longevity is better with this valve than with many of the other Neptune peripherals I have bought recently.
Works great! By Cirus on 3/19/2017Cirus would recommend this product to a friendWould definitely recommend. Great addition to the apex!
Is this valve compatible with salt water or does it require RODI only?
I'm afraid the internal magnetic piston of this solenoid is exposed to the water flow, and as a result it would not be wise to use in a saltwater application. This would be best used for RODI water only, or gas applications.
Have a great day!
So, if I have an ATO reservoir that's directly connected to my RODI (via float valve), could I insert this between the two to open the flow via fusion/app, filling the bucket? Just using the float valve, I'm finding that the constant trickle of water is rapidly depleting my DI resin.
What are the measurements and how long is the cable?
The solenoid measures 2.4" x 2.5" and has a 13 ft. cord. If you have any other questions, let us know!
Can i add to the length of cable?
Here is a link to the product you're looking for (https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/dc24-10-extension-cable-neptune-systems.html). Have a great day!
How would you incorporate the 24V power supply? It looks as if the power supply is internal to the solenoid valve.
Have a great day!
I'm trying to incorporate automatic water changes with my Red Sea 525XL using a DoS. Is this something I can use to stop the ATO temporarily while the DoS is swapping water over the course of the night?
Thanks for reaching out.
As long as you are adding new water to the system at the same rate you are removing old water your ATO should not engage.
If you are using a float valve connected to Red Sea top-off container this would provide an additional level of safety should your clean water reservoir ever empty prior to the water change cycle ending provided you catch it before the solenoid valve opens again.
I hope this helps!
Hi, can you use a series of these valves on one single Neptune Dos to dose solutions or two part while also still being able to control auto water changes from the same Dos? Essentially using the valves to open one line, while closing another line to divert the flow from one source or another.
Thank you for reaching out to us! In theory you would be able to do this but there is an extremely high level of risk involved. First, you will be putting two part into the lines when a water change is performed. Also, if for some reason a solenoid failed you could potentially use two part for the water change instead of saltwater. We really do not recommend this set up.
