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.
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.
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!

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!
The solenoid measures 2.4" x 2.5" and has a 13 ft. cord. If you have any other questions, let us know!
