The ATK (Automatic Top-off Kit) is a simple, standalone, and complete solution for replacing water lost to evaporation.
 
The new aquarium hobbyist has many challenges, but none is more annoying than the chore of adding water, every day, to make up for that lost to evaporation (a.k.a. topping off/up).  This alone usually makes the automatic top-off (ATO) device the first piece of automation equipment purchased.
 
The ironic flip side of this decision is that a faulty ATO device is one of the leading reasons for catastrophic aquarium failure, or even worse, flooding of the house or business.
 
Not all ATO devices are created equal. Sadly, many ATO on the market are made with cheap components, have very little protection against these catastrophes, and are just a nightmare to assemble and install correctly.
 
An ATO does not have to be both a blessing and a curse!
 
We designed our ATK – Automatic Top-Off Kit to not only be super-simple to install and use, but it is unique in the market as an ATO device with three layers of redundant monitoring and water-level control. The ATK does the work for you, while at the same time protecting your tank and your home.
 
Some Features:
 
Works Standalone (NO APEX NECESSARY!)
 
Advanced features are unlocked when connected to an Apex (i.e. remote failure notification via text, email, or iOS alert)
 
Includes PMUP, a powerful 24VDC pump that can push water vertically up to 14’
 
Audible failure alarm
 
Additional features with optional accessories
 
THREE LEVELS OF SAFETY PREVENT OVER-RUNS
 
1. Backup Optical Sensor
 
Should the main water level sensor fail, this second optical sensor is the backup. If water continues past the primary sensor, and then covers this one, the pump will be shut off and an alarm will sound.
 
2. IQ-Fill – Water run-time intelligence
 
If both the primary water sensor AND the backup optical sensor fail, the algorithm used in the ATK will not add more than double the learned water amount. It will shut itself off and sound an alarm
 
3. Physical float valve – the final backstop
 
If for some reason all the electronic failsafes do not work, and water is continuing to be sent to the aquarium, the mechanical float valve is the safety device that will stop the water and prevent death to your aquarium and water on your floor.

Highly Recommend!

Advantages: Plug and play. Can use if you don’t have an Apex. 3-4 levels of redundancy. FMM module (included) has two extra open slots for more sensors. Quality components. When you connect to Apex the functionality is really on display!

Disadvantages: Must update your Apex prior to installation.

I am really happy I tried this ATK kit. I have used several different types but this one is outstanding. I connected this to my Apex2016 for full automatic use. I have a smaller tank(35 gallons US) and I had to leave off the float valve to fit it properly. If I had a larger sump I would have left it on. These guys have thought of everything with this unit!!

Advantages: Use stand alone without an Apex.

Disadvantages: Nothing yet!!
