Love my Osmolator. Until I wrecked it to with all the Apex stuff. ..This tank move is now around $600 in broken equipment. Good thing my head is attached to my body or I would screw it up to.
Im looking at switching now to the duel Apex floats & the Aqualifter pump. Or is the Auto top off duel switch a better purchase for the same price.

Yea occasionally mine would run dry but nothing to long. At one point I just bought 3 replacement pumps they were failing that often. Eventually I threw it in the garbage for an autotopoff.com

I have my tank plumbed directly in to the RO/DI so its just a solenoid that turns on or off been running like that for around 5 years or so. That part works great, I have one of the newer bulk reef supply 150gpd systems and always getting 0 TDS out with the inline meter.

You two are effing crazy. Don't come crying here when your tanks crash from "sudden low salinity". My rule is ATO container is no bigger than 10% of the system volume. If the ATO is full, the majority of the tanks' inhabitants will handle it (SPS may not). If I design the system, the sump will also hold this volume with the power off and not get the floor wet.

Guess I will go with the Auto top off duel & Aqualifter

I got the osmolator pump working by direct wiring it to the Tunze power supply. Now to figure out how the float switch turns if on/off ?
