Comments: Had low torque after 2-3 months and would run fitfully. Replaced tube & regreased, but it never got better. It quit completely after 8 months. Replaced it with an industrial AC peristaltic that was noisier, but has worked flawlessly and pushes a lot more water when it is on.

Great Top Off System

Comments: This is the second one I've had since my other one died after a few years. This is the best top off unit out there. It makes it worry free and its nice that it tops off very slowly. The hoses are small enough that I can run the line outide where the top off bucket is.

Quirky, not always dependable

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I've used this ATO system for over a year with mixed results. I initially had problems with the switch not shutting off, but tech support solved that one by having me move the switch farther away from the pump - the magnetic drive in my pump was interfering with the switch operation. The pump will not autoprime unless I take the cover off the pump and hold the pump hose in. It tends to slide out from the wheels, and won't autoprime if it's not in completely. Also, it takes only a single air bubble to prevent water from moving through the pump. I have to manually reprime the pump every time I remove the intake hose from the reservoir or pour more water into the reservoir because invariably a small air bubble will become trapped in the hose.

Comments: After buying this product, it did what it was suppose to do for about 3 months. When the pump turned, it was a bit load. You knew when it was topping off the tank. That didn't bother me so much, but after 3 months I came home to a flood. It didn't register that sump was full. The regulator was positioned correctly and in the right place. I cleaned it up and put it back in my tank and it worked again for a few months, but again, I came home to another flood. I just threw it in the trash - garbage.

Comments: This thing has been nothing but a hassle. The motor has burned out. The float switch hasn't worked right and would have put 10 gal of water on my floor if I didnt catch it. I've had it about 8 months and had to send it back to the company 3 times because it hasnt worked.

Comments: This does not work well with the Red Sea Max tank. There was no way to know this before I bought it. Also, the motor is below standard, Even witht he tube well greesed, it has a hard time getting started. The gears skip a lot. Once its going it seem to be ok but the griding I hear before it gets going can't be good for it.

Comments: This is junk I have had to buy 4 of these during 2007 and there plum trash. This pump comes with their nitrate reactors and calcium reactors. I run them 24 hours a day we lube the tube weekly, change out the more than every three months but when the plastic wears out and the lift tube starts moving the unit is done. The parts will move but the lift water won't. I have a 4unit doser and a two and three singles and at one week or another I repairing one of them and they ain't cheap. Write if you know a better product to you on my nitrate reactors and calcium reactors. [email protected]
