The Water Refill Genie is a new all-in-one auto-top-off which is aimed at being your go to ATO device no matter what your method of replenishing evaporated water. E-Fins, makers of the Algae Mower Vac has designed the Water Refill Genie to be a complete ATO system for any aquarium setup whether it is reservoir based or direct RO filter connection system.
The Water Refill Genie has fail safe features against low reservoirs, pump failure, tank leaks and even main pump failure. It also comes with a brand new water level sensor with no moving parts that is durable, accurate to within 0.1 inch (2.5mm) and it is not affected by environmental conditions like waves, bubbles, algae, snails, lighting, electric field from other equipment etc.
E-Fins is making the Water Refill Genie a complete kit with the central controller with ports for the various devices and knobs for setting different top off modes, a small basic pump for top off, level sensor and magnet mounts, solenoid valve as a failsafe and all the connectors and hoses necessary to get automated right out of the box. The Water Refill Genie’s complete kit is priced at $129.99 and will begin becoming available to stores through All Seas Marine and Ocean-VU.
We are really curious about this tricky new water level sensor as this is one of the areas of ATO monitoring that can always benefit from a more robust design. You gotta give it up to E-Fins, what they lack in access to basic graphic design process they make up for with sheer ingenuity both in their products and the brochures for them. [WR Genie]
