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.

REVIEW
I've had this product for about a year now and knowing Hydor being a good company that has been around for the longest time I bit the bullet and bought this unit. Chose this one for several reasons.

Nice ATO

PROS
Consistency, audible alarms, LED indicators
CONS
Housing construction looks a bit cheap.
REVIEW
I've had this ATO installed alongside my 29g BioCube for almost two years, and it has worked great the entire time. I do appreciate the audible alarms to let me know if there are any issues with the ATO that require my attention. I'm using it with an Aqua Lifter pump and the combo is perfect for my ...Read More

Not built to last

PROS
when working it is very consistent. easy to adjust.
CONS
low power output. need to match to your topoff needs by pump more than by device.
REVIEW
I used mine (and it worked very well) for about 10 months. It has since failed. Nothing changed, it just stopped working. It alarms at all times no matter what sensors are covered.

REVIEW
So far the ATO has worked flawlessly. I really like the display letting me know if we are on the Low side or high. Either way the audible alarm provides a warning.

Too Slow to Switch off

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
Using this on a 25 gallon sump to top off my 135 reef, the sensor is too slow to react and tends to fill sump too fast, even with a super small little Desk Type water fountain pump that pumped maybe 1 gallon a minute. the submersible sensors need different vertical spacing to allow a lower dead-b...Read More
