REVIEW
Best micro RO/DI system. The DI chamber leaks at the fitting and will require a lil TLC. I swapped my DI chamber for an upgraded unit due to leaking and reflected with 3 stars With that said, it fits just about anyplace you want, easily swap out filters etc

REVIEW
My old unit was 5 years old and time to replace membrane and all the filters so this unit was cheaper. Easy to use and TDS was 0 ppm so worked great. This is perfect for me for I only have a 12"x12"x12" acrylic tank. Love it.
