Hydor Smart Level Control ATO System Information




Hydor Smart Level Control - water level management system

Smart Level is the new versatile fully electronic water level controller designed by Hydor. Smart Level safely and easily handles the aquarium and sump water level due to evaporation. Designed to be used in the many different conditions that exist in the marine and freshwater aquarium environment. Smart Level technology reduces the problems related to lime scale deposits, bacterial film, and wave action, which ensures the continuous, safe, and regular functioning of the Smart Level control.

For the SMART LEVEL Control, all types of pumps can be used, up to a maximum power of 50W. Choose a pump with a flow and head suitable for the type of use. Note that it is best to use a pump that tops off slowly within 10 minutes (maximum topping-off time).

Top-off pump required and sold separately.

Units now include a polarized socket and will accept a standard 2-prong plug.

Comments: I have had nothing but difficulties with this product. It has overflowed my sump every time I let it run on auto. I clean the sensor and follow the trouble shooting guide. Look somewhere else.

Comments: So far so good, better than JBJ version. Only thin is the clear plastic part that attaches the level switch to the magnetic mount doesn't hold the sensor. Broken in the box- needed modification to work.

Comments: Replaced a Tuntz with the Hydor ATO. The Hydor was much easier to set up. Looks like it is well made, and was a lot less expensive. Time will tell, but overall I am very happy with the Hydor system.

Smart Level; the smart choice

Comments: I ordered the Hydor Smart level for my 29g DT and 10g sump. The set up was very straight forward and quick. The salinity level has been maintained consistently. Thr only reason that I did not give the product 5/5 was that there was no water change setting. In orde to do water changes you need to turn off the product remove then add water and re-calibrate the system. It's not a huge issue, but it's the small details that mater most.

Comments: Great product! Don't know what the "expert" on the first review is talking about the plug won't fit. If it doesn't, maybe you could use your expertise to file down the one side of the plug that is too fat to fit into the slot of the Hydor plug in pig tail maybe? LOL

Comments: Got this today & I go to set it up and the plug won't accept the ac plug from my pump. In fact won't accept any pumps plug unless it a hydro pump! That's something they fail to tell before you buy it. It's the biggest form of deception. I will never buy another hydro product ever again.Do Not buy this if you live the United States!

Comments: I've been running this ato for around 4 weeks now, so far it has been a great product. The audible alarm is a great feature. I run it in my nano tank that needs topping off once a day and it has had no problems.

Comments: Works perfectly! You have to adjust the amount of water being returned to the system with a valve so it does not over fill all the time. I am currently using a RIO 50 pump for my ATO pump.

Comments: Purchase this unit to help solve ATO needs. First unit DOA and Marine Depot did replace without any question. Called Hydor about fact unit is not UL approved, Female plug will not take standard 2 prong plug on most pumps without making major changes. They do not seem to have clue on problem and realize most products made in USA when 2 prong have larger blade that is neutral and smaller which is hot. Also believe that unit's I received which were manufactured in Italy label USA are to European standard and should not be sold in USA. Sent email to representative stating issue but no response. Would not recommend product for USA market.
