    Congratulation @Vhuang168

    Monday I installed the ATK on a tank running freshwater in the garage in standalone mode no Apex connected.

    If it's stand alone does it simply report the flow? How does it report it?

    No flow metering. Just a standalone ato. This is for people who don't have or to buy the Apex.

    For some reason I read it as fmk not atk.

    FMK = Flow Monitoring Kit
    ATK = Auto Topoff Kit

    Both use the same module the FMM = Fluid Monitoring Module

    When connected the the Apex you can use different accessories so you can mix and match Flow Meters with Optical Sensors, and Leak Sensors all on one FMM.

    My ATK should be here soon and it looks like I'm selected for standalone testing. I elected to purchase 2 additional optical sensors so I'll be using 1 as an ultra high switch and the other as an ATO reservoir low switch.

    Kinda was hoping to be selected as a connected tester but oh well.

    I know when you said that you were in the group, I went and asked what group you were in.

    I too am testing as the standalone, but we are the pioneer users to find ways to improve the FMM ATK standalone mode on how it will work for anyone from the final release date as those customers will not be able to update the FMM if they don't have an Apex.

    I use the Spectrapure Ultimate Top Off. Expensive, but IMHO, worth every cent. It has not failed me, and feeds top off via my kalk mixer. Has topped off my tank for 10 years and running.
