    Hi All,

    i currently have a Tunze osmolator and a Aqua Trend evo ATU unit.

    my question is which one to use...
    both are expensive units and both use different methods of measuring water level.

    the tunze makes use of an in sump eye and float switch.
    the Aqua trend evo makes use of a water sensor that gets stuck to the outside of the sump and thus never gets bumped or moved unexpectedly. (very neat system!)

    but now i have no idea what to use!
    Tunze or Aqua Trend??

    give me your thoughts!!

    Regards
    Keith

    Evo info

    The device is distinguished by its modern design and innovative technology solutions. Traditional float switches are replaced by moisture detectors that detect the presence of water through the sump or aquarium glass (maximum thickness of glass is 10mm). By eliminating mechanical parts maximum safety and unparalleled reliability was reached.
    The refill is equipped with two detection sensors. One of them is used to control the water level in the tank, and the other works as a protection. The refill also has a siren that warns you if a safe level of water was exceeded.

    There is an optional possibility to connect third sensor that will inform the user about ending reserve of water in the tank, from which it is drawn.
    At any time, you can manually run the water pouring through the button located on the panel of the housing.

    The device is equipped with a hermetically sealed power outlet rated at 500W.
    This modern system was enclosed in attractive satin aluminum housing.

    Operation principle

    The device is equipped with two detection sensors, which are fixed to the glass (outside the aquarium or sump) using double-sided tape.

    The first sensor controls the operation of water pump or electro-valve connected to the refill. When the preset water level drops, the device switches the pump or electro-valve on and supplements the evaporated water to a fixed level.

    The second sensor acts as a protection of the first one in case of its failure. The level of water rising beyond the desired level triggers the second sensor that locks the pump. This state is indicated by illumination of the red LED "critical level" and by starting an acoustic signal.
    The emergency sensor can also be used as a anti-flooding sensor, placing it on the floor on a glass or plastic plate.

    There is an optional possibility to connect the third detection sensor that can be placed on the tank from which water is drawn. In case the water level drops, preventing safe operation of the pump, the device will switch off the pump and trigger an acoustic alarm.
