Innovative Marine AUQA Gadget HydroFill - ATO Controller System Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

*ATO pump required and sold separately.

Automate freshwater replenishment, and say farewell to heavy lifting, unstable water parameters, and the need to frequently watch your water line.

Topping off evaporated water for our aquariums is a tedious but essential task that every hobbyist encounters to maintain stable specific gravity & salinity levels.

The HydroFill ATO Controller System takes advantage of your water`s conductive properties to complete a low voltage circuit and cause a control relay to actuate and replenish water as it evaporates. This departure from outdated float sensors, offers the latest automation in electronic sensing for precise accuracy, repeatability, and no-moving part reliability.

Customize your own "High and Low" set points to prevent constant On/Off cycling prone to single sensor design

Sensors utilize rare earth neodymium magnets for stationary placement and simple out of the box installation. Small form factor makes it the ideal choice for nano to full size aquariums. Two chemically inert graphite electrodes are housed in each sensor for redundancy & consistent long-term performance in harsh marine environments.

  • 2 Year Warranty

Comments: very easy to set-up, good build quality. Allows you to set the water level refill level with precision. I have a 200 gallon tank with a very sensitive skimmer- any water level change causes my skimmer to under perform. I would strongly recommend this product any ATO system with a float is a thing of the past. MY LFS has a sale running -Buy the controller, get the 99$ pump free, so you may want to shop around if you need the pump.

Comments: As others have stated, sometimes it works and other times it does not. Unit got stuck in the on position and overloaded my tank with kalk. The good news was that I only had about 2 gallons of water left in my ATO bin, bad news was it still let enough kalk in to nuke 4-5 pieces of my SPS.

Comments: I purchased this unit even though it seems overly expensive for a single purpose. I tested it for a few days before leaving it alone to make sure it would perform correctly. Today I came home to a very near total overflow. The actual top sensor was completely submerged under water and did not turn off the pump until the tank was just about to overflow. I think these sensors need more work before they can be held as reliable. BEWARE!!!!!!

Comments: Finally a good ATO system. I feel safe that this system won't fail or get jammed up. I had to constantly adjust my last pump depending on how dry the house was for that week. Now I have NO worries that this simple system will keep it right where I want it. It says you have to use their pump, which isn't exactly correct as it has a standard outlet you could plug any pump into. Besides that the pump from Innovative works very well. I'm only a week into it and I have my "water alarm" next to my sump in case there is a glitch, but I doubt it will happen with this cool system. Well worth the money for a piece of mind.

Comments: Bought the controler and pump kit for my RSM 250. Was a very quick install. About 30 minutes. Works great and pump is very quiet. The sensors are easy to position and the magnets are very strong. I researched ATO's for a long time and got this one because the sensors are small and there are no moving parts. It's expensive but good insurance for keeping the sump protein skimmer on the RSM 250 working great.

Comments: Just plug it in, set the probes and that is it. No moving parts, the magnets hold the probes well, and the wires are long enough to keep the controller out of the way and cleanly installed. A tad on the pricey side, hence the 4 stars. Otherwise, I'm very pleased.
