Perfect!!!

makes life easier I bought a 6 gallon tupperware and its been running for weeks now, no more taking a gallon of distilled water every two days and pouring it in my sump area, FYI the siphon breaker is garbage and leaks, I threw it away, I just use the factory hose without the syphon breaker and have no problems, I just mae sure the top off resivour is below the sump water level

Great Little ATO

I purchased this system for a 35 gallon sea horse tank that utilizes a wet/dry sump. I have a JBJ unit that uses a conventional float system in a 72 gal reef tank that works well so it was a bit of a strecth to try this optical system. In this case, it was driven purely by space. The system came very well packaged and all parts were included. There was more than enough discharge tubing supplied with the unit and the cord lengths for both the optical sensor and the power supply/pump were sufficient. The tiny pump that comes with the unit is amazing. It literally runs silent and, while i don't have to overcome much head to fill the sump, the water volume leaving this little guy tells me it would do a decent job in cases where a fair amount of lift is required. The anti-siphon fitting is a little cheesy and the directions were quite lame. That said, marine equipment directions typically stink and these were no different. I gave this system a 4.5 star review because it is definitely over priced. In my case, it fit the bill for what was needed so it was worth the money in that regard. The system has only been "up" for about 3 weeks but it does run daily as a result of skimming and evaporation. If it continues to perform well, I would definitely consider using one on the "big" tank if the JBJ float system failed.

ATO Perfection

Does one more glowing review really make a difference? I don't know how many ways you can state this: this is an absolutely outstanding ATO system. It sets up easily, is inconspicuous and performs its function perfectly. Besides keeping the salinity levels more constant and making the tank more automated, this has the added benefit of keeping my tank quiet. (I run a biocube 29 and it tends to get loud as the water level in the back drops.) This is a "must have" for every tank I have in the future.

Great

This is a great little ATO! Been using this for about 4 months now and it has been working flawlessly! Just need to read and follow instructions. Nice little pump, fits easily into any resivoir. Make sure you keep the delivery line above the high water mark!

Fantastic Auto Top Off System

After 7 YEARS of manually topping off the evaporative loss in my 150 gallon salt water reef tank I purchased the Smart ATO Micro. Can't believe I waited so long to add it to my system. Took me less than 5 minutes to set it up using a spare covered aquarium as my reservoir. The system works flawlessly and my water level has never been so stable. In my opinion a much better and more reliable option than any of the float valve systems. I am so surprised at the quality and completeness of this system and would recommend it very highly, just don't wait 7 years.

Newbie

The AutoAqua Smarty ATO works perfectly. I am setting up a 30gal reef tank and it works great with my 3 gallon reservoir. I did have to figure out not to have the delivery tube underwater in the 30 gallon tank or it sets up a syphon and just cycles back and forth. Live and learn as a beginner

Siphon Problematic

Cons - I purchased 3 of these units for my 3 tanks and every single one of them has an issue with the siphon/check valve leaking. Contacted manufacturer and they were rude and would not issue refund. The magnet holding the fill tube is weak. Pros - small pump fits easily into reservoir.

The Whole Package!

Talk about a great price for a complete system! I see no way you could go wrong with this ATO Micro system, and don't let 'micro' fool you, it may be small but its small size hides big quality and features. From the tubing to the sensor everything is designed to make this as foolproof as possible. With the magnetic holders for the sensor and tubing you can easily locate and relocate either without even getting wet! Not only will the blue LED sensor let you know you system is doing its job but it will flash on fill, and go red sensing a low water level to alert you and keep the pump from running dry. I can move the sensor (its the brains) up as little as a quarter inch on the sump and it will notice the new position and raise the water level instantly to compensate for the new high water mark. Just buy it, you will not be returning it, the included tubing, wiring, and connector are more than long enough for almost any setup. My top off tank is also under the stand and I cut about five feet off the tubing. I wish we could add pictures to our reviews, you just cant tell how discrete this little guy is until you get it home!
