It is always better to rinse with the Ro/di if available.

I think I'll use RO.


Sorry bout not posting pictures of the 2nd box of base rock. Got my plumber's putty tonite, and an expensive submersible pump to get me til I can order.

Yay!!!!!!!!! Adapter for RO/DI came in today!!! But Booooooo.......Hard week. Base Rock is still on coffee table, splitting headache and gonna laydown. Hoping I can nap then get started putting the new faucet in so I can start making RO/DI, rinse rock and put in tank and start a cycle. Oh and use my borrowed TDS Meter to see the before and after
