Its not like 2-3 years ago when they were 200-300 for a ro/di... there only $100 now what is 100 when your dealing with a SW tank where rock is $8 a pound... It will be the best $100 you can spend on your tank IMO.
I have around $4000 in my 125 reef so what what is another 100-150... If you plan on corals and anemones I would get one you will not be sorry..

OK. Sounds Like RO/DI is the way to go.
Any recommendations on makes, models?

Thx

Mike

RO water can be bought at stores too! I didn't buy a unit because of the wasteful nature of RO units.

True there is waste water when making ro/di water, this water can be used for many things. I have me unit near the washing machine so I have the waste water going into the washer and i use that to start a load of laundry. Some people save it to water there plants.
How much gas do you burn going to the store to buy water? The LFS where I used to buy water was 40 min away, so when you add it up I spend more money buying water then making my own. And almost every time your at the store you buy something else.
There are some good units on e-bay.. I have a unit from airwaterice.com they are great people there and very helpful.
