I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If I had to do it over, I'd go with the autotopoff.com two switch system ($51) and a Tom's aqualifter pump ($16). The JBJ has some nice features (lights, modular float switches and a buzzer), but I don't think it justifies the price tag ($100). The aqualifter can be used as an air pump or water pump, so it won't burn out if the water level in the reservoir gets low (although it is loud when that happens). If you don't have a source for the aqualifter, autotopoff sells some cheap pumps that should do fine for a transfer pump. You have to get a transfer pump for the JBJ anyway. Both use very similar float sensors.

That's pretty much my setup... only I have the in-tank switches which have the snail guards, since I bought it used. Took some eggcrate to lower the bracket since mine is in sump.

I'm losing a half a gallon daily or more, I don't know why I haven't purchase an ATO yet. I like the looks of the autotopoff.com.
