Can you explain your set up a little more. My display doesnt go up or down because of my over flows. Its in my sump that the levels change. Please forgive me for sounding ignorant but this is my first tank with a sump and I know very little about ATO. I am trying to understand the high level valve in the display.

If you have a sump that's where your top off should be since DT is always at same level.

Right but I was trying to understand how Holygral has theirs set up. He or she said that they have two float valves. A low valve in the sump and a high valve in the display. Just trying to understand the different set ups

They may not have a reef ready tank so they use the one in the DT as a safety in case the over flow box stop working. I could be wrong that's what I get from it.

Just got the same ATO and I love it!!! Highly recommend it. I used one magnet instead of two. I would suggest using the two magnets (if you have room in your sump) -it took me forever to fine tune it without the alarm going off constantly. Hence, the recommendation to use the two magnets. Alarm is loud enough to hear in an other room. It's a good thing in case of an overflow. The likelihood of an overflow seems minimal with the sensors.

It's been a few days without top offs and I'm really happy with it. It was a great investment. When you first put it together its a maze but once it starts its a great addition to the tank... Beats topping off water every day!!! it gets old quick !!
