SpectraPure® Power Liquid Level Controller Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Are you aiming to automate your aquarium maintenance? Spectrapure® Power Liquid Level Controller from Pet Store is a great tool to do that. This device automatically refills your tank with water to make up for the amount lost through evaporation. You can take manual water changes off your list because this liquid level controller will work by itself and even run other aquarium equipment once you've installed it.

Spectrapure® Power Liquid Level Controller is compatible with systems that have an AC electric control. It can run up to 3 amperes water pumps (continuous duty) and also power heads that use 115 volts. It does its job by using a switch that is sensitive to air pressure to turn the AC outlet on and off. This can turn a power head pump into a continuous duty one. This device can be calibrated to switch a pump on and off according to changes in water level, which is a feature that is highly useful for those who have a constant unmanned water changing system.

It is also handy for automatic topping off of reservoir water. With Spectrapure® Power Liquid Level Controller, you can rest assured that your tank has the appropriate water level all the time. No more worrying about flooding the house! Make your life easier by getting a unit of this handy machine today.

SpectraPure® Power Liquid Level Controller
  • For automatic replenishment of evaporated liquid on systems which require AC electrical control
  • Controls up to 3 Amp continuous duty pumps and other 115 Volt power heads
  • Extremely useful for continuous water change systems & other level control applications
SpectraPure® Power Liqiud Controller uses a sensitive air pressure switch to energize or de-energize an AC outlet, which can be used to switch a power head or a 115 Volt pump up to 3 Amps continuous duty. The unit can be set to turn a pump on or off with changing water level and is extremely useful for continuous water change systems or automated top-off.

Comments: This product works and fills up to the same spot on the tube every time. The problem is that it takes way too much water level drop to reactivate this thing. My stop point is about 2 1/2" up the tube, and it will not reactivate until the tube literally comes completely out of the water. In my sump, that equates to almost 10 gallons of evaporation before the thing activates again. That is enough to cause my salt levels to rise from 1.026 to 1.028. It basically comes on every 4 1/2 days for me. I think I am going to cap off a piece of 1" pvc, drill a hole to fit the sensor tube into, seal it off, and use it that way. The additional air and water surface area trying to rise up the larger pvc tube will cause a higher pressure gradient when the water level changes. I may just not use their air tube at all and make my own pvc tube with air line to the pressure switch.

Comments: This is the perfect solution for people that use a small pump to move their RO/DI water from a storage container to their main tank. The controller switch itself is a little difficult to dial in, but once it's in place, it works well.

Comments: Does what is says, but 1" of water level is not as precise as I needed. Especially for the price. I am already looking for a replacement.

Comments: Purchased this based on other reviews and have watched the level drop a full inch and so far, nothing. Also, I did not receive a new product as pictured on the website. What I received was already assembled in plain plastic bag with no instructions. A bit disappointing.

Comments: This product has been working exactly as advertised for a few weeks. I am using it to control the daily transfer of top off water from one container to another. I set it up in about 5 minutes. I switched over to magnetic holders for the tube to make sure it wouldn't come loose and I use a timer as a backup to avoid a potential flood. The only minor detail is you need some way to mount the black box (I'm using velcro).

Comments: I use this with a simple DIY top off system. The setup consists of a 5 gallon bucket, a Maxi-Jet 900 pump, and a tetra whisper air pump/stone (for aeration of resevoir water). Very easy to setup and much cheaper compared to other retail purpose built top off systems. The sensor suction cups work very well too. The whole thing works like a charm. My only complaint is that the water level varies more than I would have liked; about a 2" variance. Hence the water level in my sump isn't always in my skimmer's sweet spot. That could easily be addressed by using a baffle to separate the skimmer if my sump was big enough. Still much better than manual top offs which were a drag for me since I have a lot of evaporation.
