What does ATO stand for? Sorry I am just in the learning phase for salt water so I may sound like I don't know much.

Yup, ATO = Auto top Off. It's a switch (or switches) that controls a relay to turn a pump on and off based on the water level. So when water evaporates, the float switch drops, closing the relay and allowing a small pump to pump water into the tank from a holding bucket.

I ordered the dual-switch design from autotopoff.com. I've heard nothing but good things about them, so I wanted to give them a try. I ordered on Friday evening, and received it on Monday. I hope to get it hooked up tonight.
