Details

The magnetic bracket also contains a 1/4" compression fitting, useful for holding the tube from your top-off pump in place.  This fitting can be switched out for an optional backup float valve, which will physically close and stop the flow from your pump in the event of an electrical or switch issue.  Click the product photo for a bigger version that shows this float installed.

Digital Output version is now available for use with most aquarium controllers.  This version is designed without an outlet; just plug the ATO pump into your controller's relay box and set up the controller to read the pressure switch state (see instruction manual for details).  It is
 available with the plug types of several popular aquarium controllers.  For example, Neptune Apex/AC3/AcJr uses a "minidin-8" style plug.  To use this, simply plug into the port marked "I/O" on the controller, and program according to instructions.  If you already have something plugged in to that port, you will want to use their Breakout Box and select the "bare wire" option below.  See instruction manual for further details. Bare wire connection is 2 strand, non-polarized 22 AWG shielded wire. In the case of ReefKeeper Lite/Elite, use this option with the float switch adapter wire that came with your controller and/or SW5 Switch Module.

Profilux, Reef Angel, and RKL/RKE compatible plugs are also available.
 
The Digital Output version allows several non-standard uses for this switch. For example, it can be a low level sensor in your sump that is impervious to coralline algae and snails, can turn off your return pump and send you a text message at the same time. There are a lot of options since you can reverse the logic of the switch at the controller.

Our switch and all components are made in the USA.

Quick Overview

Finally, a top-off control sensor that is mounted to your sump with a magnet rather than a clunky bracket! Driven by a pressure-sensitive switch located in the relay box, a strong magnetic field won't affect its operation. The sensor tube can't get clogged with calcium deposits or activated by wayward snails as there are no moving parts. Our top-off system is capable of maintaining the sump water level within +/- 1/4" tolerance (1/2" overall) and features a built-in range buffer or hysteresis effect, which prevents rapid on-off switching that sometimes occurs when cheap float switches bob up and down in small waves. The magnet bracket is capable of holding on up to 1/2" thick glass. The slim design relay box is unobtrusive and can handle up to a 3 amp pump at 110v AC. The green LED light indicates when the circuit is active and the pump is running.
