Asking Santa for RO/DI

Well, it's been awhile since I've posted, sorry to have been away so long.

Anyway, my house is on a well, and though that water has served well (no pun intended ;-), the cyno in my 55 that I am fighting is really getting to me, despite the water changes and increased flow. Of course, the 125 upgrade is underway, but I think I'd like to have the RO in place for that as well. Basically, I've put it off long enough.

So, any recommendations for a specific brand/model to get or avoid? I know they come is various sizes and can have various type of cartiridges, but what features/options/etc should I look out for?

Thanks.
Matt

there are a few posts on this alredy, do a search on the site... ebay seems to be the place to shop for a ro/di. a 75 gpd unit would be a good unit to get.

Got mine from ebay. I have and recommend getting one with the clear canisters so you can see the condition of the filters.
