Excellent job! All ready to go! LOL Just make sure you dont use the first 10g or so. Thats the test water.

I also think no matter how much you block the back with rock, if the fish wants in that tiny spot I think he'll find it.

I may still be doing a re rockscaping though.

Just got done with my sink. Had to take it apart 4 times due to leaks. Finally NO LEAKS (for now). Hooked up RO/DI and am now making water.

TDS before RO: 262.6
Check it out

10 gallon bucket, when full will dump and do another, then dump to "rinse" bucket, then use the next.

Lightbulb TDS Meter

Ok, so I borrowed a TDS Meter from work. They said it was an old one and they had newer ones they could use so I could use it for a couple weeks til I got one.

Well I liked how easy this one is and I figured since at work we have to worry about EPA and violations and stuff; that this had to be accurate. Sooo I went on the net to the manufacturer and holy cow 750.00 bucks; accuracy +1/-1%. I'm thinking that is a tad bit out of my price range.

Well in the mean time I hope I don't break this thing or I won't get a paycheck.
