    So. Does this look trustworthy? I drilled a hole in a piece of plexi at the height i want the water to stay in the sump. I attached the float valve and line coming from the RODI unit. Mine has an auto shut off sensor so when the clean water (output ) is closed it shuts the unit off completely...

    I'm looking to invest in an ATO system for when I go out of town, but I have a couple questions... I (obviously) am looking at the most bang for the $$$. So I'm open to ideas. Also if it is topping off the tank and / or sump, then what is topping it off? (where's the source water from?)...

    I will be adding an ATO to my system just as soon as you guys and gals tell me what to buy, lol. It is for my 90G display, total volume with sump is about 120G. I am losing about 3 gallons per 36 hour period because of the difference in the sump temperature and the ambient temperature of the...

    What do you guys use for ATO? can I just run a line after my DI unit right into the sump? or do you need a separate container prior to the sump that is a collection tank of fresh water to feed the sump. http://www.thatpetplace.com/pet/prod/245266/product.web this is the unit I am interested...
