Just installed this today and it was working fine 20 mins into it the alarm was going off. I looked in my sump and the tunze was topping off pass my float switch. Did i do something wrong?

It's common for people inadvertently setup auto top offs so they end up creating a siphon. Make sure to position the hose end ABOVE where you set the water level to avoid a siphon. Also make sure your water reservoir position is correct to avoid this as well.

I'm assuming that this is your issue as it seemed to be the main complaint about that unit

Yeah I fixed it thank you. I had to put the end hose on my display tank and it seems to work. Thanks
