Neptune Systems ATK Automatic Top-off Kit v2

ATK

3 in stock

The ATK (Automatic Top-off Kit) is a simple, standalone, and complete solution for replacing water lost to evaporation. No Apex necessary!

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!

Neptune Systems designed the 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.

KEY BENEFITS OF THE ATK:

  • Plug and play ready. No mounts to assemble. No bare wires to attach.
  • 3 Levels of Safety Protection!
  • Two optical water-level sensors (one for water level and one for emergency back up)
  • IQ-Fill water run-time intelligence – learns how much water you use at each top-off
  • Mechanical float valve prevents water overrun if electronics should ever fail
  • Does NOT rely on ANY fault-prone mechanical float switches, temperature sensors, or capacitive sensors!
  • 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

New Improvements for V2

  • Improved optical sensors
  • New PMUP with improved longevity and reliability
The PMUP is a 24VDC submersible pump that was designed to directly connect to the DC24 accessory ports on either the 1Link module OR the same ports on the new Energy Bar 832.  If you own our WAV powerheads or our new Apex, then you have a place to plug it in!  These ports are switchable and can power the pump on and off just like any other outlet on an Energy Bar.
.
Unlike many wimpy pumps out there, the PMUP has enough pressure to push water up 14 feet vertically, it can even move the water up from one floor below.

This means you could put your RO water storage in your basement or downstairs in a utility room and it could still pump it up to the tank.

It also has a vertically oriented design with a bottom intake and top output that is perfect for use in jugs or other RO containers. Just drop it in!

  • Automatic shut off when dry

  • Over-temperature protection

  • Stands upright on new removable screen

  • Easier to clean and maintain
