| HYDROS Drive Port accessory for your HYDROS Control aquarium controller platform
|Controllable solenoid valve connects to your reverse osmosis unit to regulate water flow
| Connect to your HYDROS Control aquarium controller and download the HYDROS app for wireless control
Controllable DC solenoid valve specially engineered to connect to any HYDROS Drive Port. The HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve is a HYDROS Drive Port accessory that provides easy ON/OFF water flow control for your Reverse Osmosis (RO) or Reverse Osmosis/Deionization (RO/DI) unit. Once properly integrated to your HYDROS Control aquarium controller platform, the HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve is powered and controlled by your HYDROS Control aquarium controller. By downloading the FREE HYDROS app, you can control any HYDROS-connected device with your Internet-enabled computer, smartphone, or tablet!
The HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve works in conjunction with your HYDROS Control aquarium controller and an optical or mechanical water level sensor. When the sensor detects the water level is low, it opens the HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve, allowing fresh RO or RO/DI water to flow through and top off your aquarium or sump. When the water level sensor senses that the water level is replenished, it will "tell" your HYDROS Control aquarium controller to shut off power to the solenoid. This closes the valve and stops the flow of reverse osmosis water. The HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve should be connected to the product line coming off your reverse osmosis system. 1/4" push-connect fittings allow quick and easy connection to standard RO tubing.
HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve Application Example
Instead of using the HYDROS DC Micro Pump as your ATO pump, you can use the HYDROS DC Solenoid Valve instead. Just plug it into a Drive Port on the HYDROS Control aquarium controller for power then control and configure using the HYDROS app. It is recommended to install an auto-shutoff valve and check valve on your reverse osmosis system to prevent it from producing wastewater when the solenoid is closed.
HYDROS is engineered, assembled and supported at CoralVue headquarters in Slidell, Louisiana USA.
HYDROS Control aquarium controllers and other HYDROS accessories sold separately.
Please Note: The HYDROS app is required to use your Internet-connected smart mobile device as a controller. The HYDROS app is downloadable via the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

AutoAqua General Information
The HYDROS DC Solenoid Water Valve is an Official HYDROS Accessory manufactured by AutoAqua in Taiwan. As creators of the Smart ATO Micro, AutoAqua is one of the most well-known and trusted makers of aquarium automation systems in the hobby today. CoralVue has thoroughly tested the DC Solenoid Water Valve to ensure seamless compatibility with the HYDROS platform. The product development team at CoralVue engineered the sensor so it connects with any HYDROS Sense Port using its aviation-style plug for safe operation. No additional power source is needed to run the sensor.
Hydros aquarium controllers are the next generation of automated aquarium devices. Rather than relying on each individual device’s brain and programming capacity, the Hydros Control units have their own CPU and control capabilities. Hydros Control devices remove the problem of incompatible ports and need to continually add modules to expand your aquarium’s automation system. This new technology is called the Hydros Sense Port. The Sense Port is an entirely new concept in aquarium monitoring technology. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors. Drive Ports provide 12-volt power for controlling ATO pumps, cooling fans, and other devices. Hydros is the future of automation!
