The ATO is super simple. It uses one float valve, available via Amazon. Some air line and a fresh water (RO/Distilled) reservoir.
The reservoir is kept above the aquarium(s). Mine is 30 gallons. The air line is attached to a weight on one side and sits at the bottom of the reservoir. I run the other end to the aquarium, start a syphon through the air line then pinch off the air line with a binder clip.
Then attach the airline to the float valve. Connect the float valve to your aquarium. Mine is simply just clamped by friction to the edge. Adjust the float so that the valve is right at the shut position. Remove the binder clip to let water run through the air line.
When the water level drops, the valve will open and allow fresh water to trickle in. When the level has reached the original level, it will slow and eventually stop.
