SpectraPure

SpectraPure® Ultra-Precise ATO holds your tank's salinity constant while adding replacement water or Kalc in small doses. The pump can operate in either "fill mode" or "drain mode" when the water level changes. The Sensor Tube can be pre-set to operate with a minimal (0.1") change in water level up to a 4" difference. This calibration is saved even after a loss of power.

The ATO runs on a ten-second cycle. The pump can be on for any number of seconds each cycle, including zero (always off) and ten (always on). After the Ultra-Precise ATO is powered up, use the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the ON-time in 10% steps. (This value is also saved even after a loss of power).

The pump used in the Ultra-Precise ATO is the same pump that is in the LiterMeter III™ , the leader in aquatic dosing for over 10 years. Now with our new improved, long life Peristaltic tubing. This is the quietist, most reliable Peristaltic Pump ever made.

Good pump - crappy suction cup

Great pump and accurate sensor... why would you strap it to a suction cup that is going to fail!! I did as instructed and added a dab of silicone sealant to the suction cups when installing the sensor to the side of my sump. After 2 months it started to fall off so I reapplied the sealant and re-suctioned the cups to have them fall off again 3 months later! Horrible design! No wonder this product is discontinued! I modified the attachment by supergluing the sensor to a magnet (much like other competitors systems). Problem fixed! I wouldnt recommend this to anyone until they get rid of the cheap suction cups! If it werent for that I would give it 5 stars, but the result of the sensor coming off is to catastrophic! Oh and the fail safe back up sensor attaches by??... yep, a suction cup!

Great ATO

I have used this ATO for two years now without any problems. I use it to draw fresh water from the basement and put it in the sump upstairs. It has both the water level sensor and the back up float valve as back up. It doesn't draw water very quickly but that does not matter because the sensor can be set to keep the water level very consistent.

well made product

I've had this unit running for over a year. The initial set of rollers wore out rather quickly. I was using kalk in my top off, and the tubing got clogged, setting the unit to run continuously without any liquid flowing. The manufacturer shipped me replacement rollers under warranty and it has been running perfectly ever since. Keeps the level in my sump (and as a result my salinity level) very precise. Although I switch off of dosing kalk and now use 2-part instead.

Great for any level

This is a really solid product it lasted for's at least four years free of any problems or any maintenance and it works awesomely. I've used the aqua med top off and it was constantly needing maintenance and upkeep. this really works exactly like you want to and to very precise. It's really easy to set up well. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to keep the salinity level within very tight margin. I use it Kalk plus and it keeps my pH and salinity levels very even.

So far so good!

I've had it for less than 2 weeks, it's my first ATO and works great. pros: reliable, accurate, pump speed is controllable con: a little unintuitive to set up Other thoughts: expensive, but has a 5 year warantee
