    I think thats the one, goes in the sump. I need it for a top up system you know container and power to deliver the water to the sump. What else is needed for it. Will not be using it for a RO shut off just a basic top up.

    ok... this is probably not what you want... its only a switch that lets water pass if the float is low enough...

    I seen an actual switch on Fishysans system... maybe he could help us.

    So my spare water would have to be higher the the sump. What does Fishysan use, a Tsunami top up or something different.

    I have an Ultralife Reef Products electric float switch. It's a float activated relay system.. it powers a powerhead which tops off with RO. There are a number of similar products available, I got this one from Marinescape - I was tired of dripping manually. I wouldn't recomend the kent one (29$) as it would be prone to dirt/failure in a saltwater env. As a back pressure float for an RO unit, ya (got that).
