Just connected my ATO and I can't get my Apex to recognize the pressure valve is closed. I have it completely submerged in my sump and it says open. This is the code I am using

ATO_3_4 (base_Out2)
Fallback OFF
OSC 000:00/010:00/050:00 Then ON
If Switchx2_1 OPEN Then OFF
Defer 000:10 Then ON
Defer 002:00 Then OFF

Is it my code or do I have a bad valve

Float switch? Not a pressure valve?

OSC 080:00/020:00/080:00 Then ON
If Switch2 OPEN Then ON
If Switch2 CLOSED Then OFF
If FeedA 000 Then OFF
If Outlet Feeder = ON Then OFF

Actually both a pressure valve with a back up float valve.

Use an ohm meter to confirm that they are working correctly. Float switch may need to be flipped over.

I don't understand what you are saying I am using the Avast Marine ATO with pressure valve and a back up float switch connected to the apex pm1 box through I/O port??

This is the code we suggest:

Fallback OFF
Set OFF
If Switch1 CLOSED Then ON


Try the basic code first then add the osc and defer codes one by one. Also Switchx2_1 is this on an expansion? Verify the address and a reboot of the Apex is required to recognize things on the expansion ports.

If these things don't work submit a ticket via our website and we will further troubleshoot if needed.

It seams to work sometime then not others. I will submit a ticket in tomorrow
