REVIEW
I have had one of these for about 5 years and it worked great! This purchase was a replacement. The valve does a good job of completely shutting of the RO unit. Simple to install reasonably priced and works well.

REVIEW
Great product. Once it's installed, your RO will completely shut down once your reservoir is full. I wish I had installed one years ago; it would have saved me an untold number of gallons of water and wasting filter performance for forgetting to turn off the water.

REVIEW
If you are wanting to run your line out from ro/di system to top off your tank or refugium, then all you need is the float valve, don't mess with the other stuff that comes in the kit. I drilled a hole in my refugium where i wanted the float valve to go and applied teflon tape to threads. Inserted f...Read More

Going into the reservoir first keeps the unit from cycling to fast. Also if th...Read More

REVIEW
I have had one of these for about a year... it stopped working a few months ago, and my reservoir overflowed. The float itself filled with water, rendering it useless. Not only that, but when it was "working" the stop valve would leak a small amount of water with just a small amount of...Read More

REVIEW
I returned this kit. The reason I got it was because I wanted the waste from the RO to shut off when the tank was full and the dispensed water stopped. Everyone should check their R/O unit and make sure you don't already have the automatic shutoff for the waste line. If so, then instead of spending...Read More

REVIEW
For some reason, I've never had a shutoff mechanism for my RO/DI unit. Being who I am, I have a tendency to forget turning the darn thing off before it overflows my water storage device (aka a plastic garbage can). After one too many "floods", I finally caved and bought this item. Sure ...Read More
