Top-off water system

Need an easy but effective way of topping off my sump water. Manually is fine when at home but what can I do when I'm gone for a week or so? Got a 120 gal FOWLR and 20 gal sump/refugium. Got about a 2 liter evaporation per day. Thx

Tunze top off is awesome, cheap and great for the price. You can hook it up on a 5 gallon bucket or any other reservoir, just set it and you should be good.

My tanks (so far )
5.5 gallon Planted Dwarf Puffer tank (2 Dwarf Puffers and a lot of RCS!)
16 Gallon Planted
(GBR pair, 3 amano shrimp and a whole bunch of snails!)

How do you change water? Straight from the tap? if so, put JG barrier pipe from the water tap to the sump, and adjust flow to 2l/d
