Comments: Great little ato, keeps my nano water and salinity levels on point. Very smart design, tiny footprint: "just works", not too many parts or components - I swore something was missing when I unpacked, it's so few parts, but nope, it's all there in a tiny package. You do need to keep an eye on the optical sensor, if it becomes dirty or sits in a flow of water it may not sense accurately. To me this seems obvious but I like to keep a close eye on all the elements of my tank and equipment. Clean it routinely, check it often, then trust it when you need to (I've gone out of town a few times since installing and it's never let me down).

Comments: Match made in heaven for my open top 29g biocube. I had removed the stock hood on my biocube due to insufficient lighting and upgraded to max spect LEDs and since I've done the upgrade I've had to top off my tank everyday until now! Got this and it's been a piece of mind to know I don't have to worry about evaporation when I gone. I simply put the golf ball sized pump in a 5g jug and done. This set up is perfect and simple. And easy to set up. Thanks again marinedepot for quick and reliable shopping

Comments: It works sometimes, requires a lot of maintenance, cleaning off the sensor, and has overflowed my sump multiple times since I have had it (two months). Even though it has a safety off 'switch' it is a bit buggy. I would go with a tunze since they have a mechanical back up in case the sensor fails.

Comments: I just bought two of these and installed them in two sumps. It was very easy and straightforward to do. I installed the sensor above the water level I want in the sumps and I had let the water levels drop so I could make sure they turned off and on properly. They both turned on and turned off right where they should. I am very pleased. This will greatly reduce my worries when I am out of town.

Overfilling

Comments: I have been using the SATO-100P now for about a month. For the most part is working fine, but occasionally it overfills. Last night it overfilled until it ran out of makeup water. The unit was flashing red light quickly and beeping. I am afraid that if it hadn't run out of water, it would have continued to fill to overflow. As anyone else experienced this problem? In the old days of mechanical relays, it would appear that the ‘Pump On’ relay was stuck. I don’t know what the digital equivalent is, but there appears to be something going on with either a sensor or firmware/software.

Comments: adjusted. It could use a mark on the side of the unit to better align it with the water level you want. I had to play with it a little, not for long mind you, and then it worked just fine.

Comments: Keeps my salinity in check. More importantly, when I am away from home for more than 1 week, my water level would get so low that I'd risk my overflow running dry. This ato device assures that my overflow will never run dry. My acrylic aquarium is a little thicker than the 1/2 inch that the product says it can do so I taped some Velcro below it to keep it from sliding down. NOTE: the device must be attached to a CLEAR glass/acrylic.
