Works Great

Comments: Works as advertised. Easy to setup and install. I dumped the water produced during the first hour of production. After that, system produced about 30 gallons in 14 hours. I also purchased the dual TDS meter. Input side reading was 130-140. Output side was zero every time I checked it. System recommends 77F as water input temperature for best efficiency. My input water is about 64F. I have a 55 galloon barrel collecting the RO water. I'll likely purchase a submersible heater for the barrel to heat the water so it's closer to my tank temp of 79. I'm also thinking of purchasing an extra long 15-20 foot section of RO tubing for the input side. I'd place most of that tubing into my collection barrel with heater to pre-heat the water going to input side of RO unit. I'd need to always keep some water in the barrel for this to work.

R/O DI Buddie

Comments: Bought this to use as an ATO or Auto Top Off for my 135g Fish only tank. Also bought the float valve AquaticLife makes. This RO/DI unit is always on since it is my ATO, my tank has been up and running almost 3 months now and I have to replace the DI Cartridge already granted it is making around 5-10g/day. Works great mounted under my stand, everything just pops off and on so it easy to work on and move if needed. I have an old 5 stage RO/DI that I use to fill my 200g storage tank and I am considering getting the 100gpd version RO/DI Buddie instead of replacing all the filters next time....

Comments: Well worth the money. Would get the 100gpd unit if I had to do it all over again just because it would be faster. They should put together a package that comes with a TDS meter and pressure gauge.
